Bright kid friendly packaging. Looks fun to play, no unnecessary packaging. It’s a great concept. Really useful for practicing phonic sounds and sound blending. Great for ‘learning through play’.  Instructions very clear and easy to follow. He found it easy to play and loves it.  We also made up our own versions of playing adapting to his ability which was easy to do. High quality, thick cardboard. Can withstand a 9 months old teething habits! He was really excited to play it; as soon as it arrived he had it open and was trying to play it! The game is very useful, I have started teaching Billy some phonics and sound blending and he was able to pick out the letters that correspond to the sounds and blend them together which he was very pleased about. He was able to put the sounds together and started to understand how to blend them together to make the word. We really liked the way you could turn it over and do it without the letters. We didn’t get chance to play with any friends as most are younger and don’t know any phonics yet. We played it together, however we modified it a little to fit his ability. This is played nearly every day and he loves it. I did keep him entertained but it does require quite a lot of input from an adult. He has only just started learning phonics. The older and more competent he gets the more I expect he will be able to do himself. This is a great educational game and it’s really helped and encouraged him to learn his phonics. I think it does offer good value. He loves playing it and he really wants to learn more letters because of it. I like the fact it can be easily modified to suit different ages and really engages young children especially through the pictures and easy to copy letters. We love it and would consider buying for gifts for family members of a similar age. It’s easy to use and really engaging for children. It has really helped to encourage billy to practice and learn his phonics and sound blending. It’s a fab product with a great concept. Really easy to use and very engaging. We love all orchard toys products that we’ve tried so far and this has been no exception. It’s really encouraged billy to learn his phonics and practice sound blending. It’s highly adaptable for all ages and will be used for many years to come! Hannah Gregory – William 4 Years

A fun interactive game I can play with my child. I understand it and it was fun teaching this to my young child to learn and see her face when she was explain how to play to another family member. Easy to read and follow the instructions. My child has found it fitting so not a huge challenge but enough fun and challenging without getting frustrated. I think the contents of this game are great and good quality. She loves this game and it has become a favourite. I do believe this is helping my daughter with letter recognition. Great to help with word building and great to bring fun into learning. Both family members, my daughter and her cousin enjoyed playing this game. My daughter plays this game daily.  Was ideal game to keep her entertained. Age suitability is ideal as I think any younger and the child would get frustrated and not enjoy the game.  A great educational game which is very good value for money.  I loved that I could play this game and spend time with my daughter.  I would buy this. I would recommend for all the reasons above.  Laura Cheadle – Daughter 5 Years

The game looked sturdy and good quality just like the Brand depicts. It looked colourful and bright and my little one wanted to open it immediately! The concept is amazing. Educational fun I’d day! It helps them create an interest in learning through play and helps spark their imagination by creating new words and phonics. The instructions were pretty much straightforward. I just had to explain once to my little girl and as she already goes to school, this was something she could easily grab and get going. My child stated she has done similar activities at school and they learn English the same way hence it was easy to play and show mummy her phonics skills and have fun too. The game is sturdy and well made. It is well made and long lasting and I am happy to say it would easily last my pre-schooler too. My little one loves learning especially English hence this game was enjoyed massively and we learnt quite a lot of new words and phrases. This game is a great way not only for letter recognition but also improves their letter sounds and word formation. It would have been even better if it had bigger words. Definitely helped with word building.  But I’d say for her age, she is into bigger words and vowels and consonants. It could have been more advanced for a 5 year old. My daughter only played with family and we all loved it. But we struggled with more letters as there seemed to be less for more than one person to enjoy. This is best played with as a single person. My daughter preferred playing on her own as the words were less than she thought. She was getting frustrated finding the letters if we all joined in. She played with it a good 30 minutes before getting bored and moving to another activity. The game certainly kept her entertained but this should be aimed for under 4’s as for the elder kids, they already play with similar activities at school and this could be a similar experience. The perfect age should be 3-4 years which is the ideal age for this game and when they are at the start of their phonics. Definitely a good educational game! The concept is amazing and it makes them learn as well as enjoy the process of word formation. The game is good value for money and it should be a great game for kids about to start big school.  I loved the concept of learning new words being made less boredom and that they can actually enjoy it! I would happily purchase this for a pre-schooler as this is a good one and also reasonably priced. I happily recommend this game to friends and family as it can be a massive help with their little one’s learning process. I loved how simple the game is and that the little one’s learning can be boosted through simple play. They can use their imagination to build new words and correct their English and phonics. It could help them with blending words and lots more. I loved the creative and educational yet fun game! It is a great language support especially if your little one is struggling with phonics or if English is not your first language. It is a massive help at improving spelling and phonics. It makes them put their thinking caps on and it is also affordable! Farwah Farrukh – Shanzay 5 Years
