All kids love games, and all parents love games that teach their children whilst they are having fun. Learning Resources Alphabet Island is the best of both. This fast pace, fun and competitive game will teach your children about letters whilst they are having a lot of fun.
Whats in the box…
- Letter cards (Upper case)
- Letter playing discs (lower case)
Aim of the game…
To be the person at the end with the most letter discs
Playing the game…
Each person takes it in turn to flip over the top card of the deck, each player then has to race to find that letter from the discs on the board. With the cards being upper case and the discs being lower case this can make thing a tiny bit more tricky. If you take a disc that is covering a red crab then you have to take a disc from another player. If you take a disc that is covering a yellow starfish, you then have to give another player one of your discs. If you happen to be unlucky enough to turn over a shark card then you have to pop one of your discs in the sharks mouth.
One the flip side of the discs there are pictures to make it slightly harder for older children. So if you turn over a card with the letter M on it, you then need to look for a picture with something starting with the letter M.
The game is pretty simple to play and very easy and quick to set up. Little Man found it a lot of fun and so did I. We did take a video of us playing which you can watch here.
So you have read the review and watched the video, you think its fun? Head on over the Learning resources website and order your own copy to play at home.
