We were very excited to get this new board game to review from Orchard Toys.
We've worked playing a game together as a family into our nightly routine, so after dinner, Ruby gets chance to sit down with myself and daddy and spend some time together before bath and bed.
In all my reviews I am always honest. If there's something I don't like about a product I'll say so. Equally, if I do like a product or a company, then I'm happy to shout it from the rafters.
Never let it be said that this house only runs on freebies and blagged products.
Check out one of our toy cupboards to see what we think of Orchard Toys games...
The Alphabet Lotto was one we reviewed, but all the others are ones we've bought for Ruby or asked for as birthday gifts. See- we love Orchard Toys!
If you see a crocodile (don't forget to scream) is a great addition to our collection of family games. Suitable for 2-4 players aged 3 plus, it's a really fun, action-packed (and noisy!) game. Because of this, it might not be best suited to winding-down bedtime - in fact Ruby got so excited that shortly after this video was taken she knocked the table, tipped over my tea and soaked the whole thing - it's currently drying out on the radiator - oh well!
Please excuse the background detritus and the fact that Ruby is in her dressing gown (rolls eyes).
She absolutely loved it, and played with much enthusiasm (read noise). I can see this being a great Christmas day game for all the family to join in.
All Orchard Toys games are educational, and whilst some like Greedy Gorilla teach about healthy eating, and What's Rubbish teach about recycling, this one helps youngsters learn and recognise colours. This is something Ruby has mastered now, but as with any board game, there are plenty of other learning opportunities - like communication skills; taking turns and losing graciously (we're working on that one!).
Overall, I'd say this game is hugely fun and lively and would make an excellent Christmas gift. This game retails at £11.50. check out the website for loads more great titles - you can NEVER have enough Orchard Toys board games!
What's more, I'm giving you a chance to 'blag' your very own If you see a crocodile game.
