Baa Baa retails at £9.50. It is suitable for 2-4 players and the suggested age range is 3-12. It is brilliant for nursery or pre-school aged children who are learning colours as it introduces several less obvious colours. It teaches turn-taking and basic game play, and the concepts of winning and losing
The game is really simple. You have a card with 6 differently coloured spots, a spinner and a whole flock of sheep wearing various clothes. Spin the spinner and if one of your colours is shown then you take a sheep wearing an item of clothing in that colour. Stand a sheep on all six spots first and you are the winner!
My 3 year old thinks it's really excellent and he has instantly picked up on grey and purple, which are both colours that he wasn't confident with before. My 4 year old definitely struggles with this game at times because he is colour-blind, so for him at least a game such as Orchard Toys Pirate Shapes is better, as it's not only about colour, but each part also has other visual clues as to where it should locate.
I think the age range is a little out, I can't really imagine older children playing this game without younger siblings as it is very simplistic, and I also think that the lower recommended age is purely because of small parts, in my opinion most 2 year olds would also be able to play this game very competently and get a lot of enjoyment from it - you'd just have to watch they didn't eat it instead!
We really like it, especially my 3 year old. We give it a 4/5
Orchard Toys are available direct from Orchard Toys, or if you prefer to shop offline you can find your nearest stockist on their website
