Blue Orange Happy Bunny Game
(Blue Orange $19.99)
It takes a little time to set up the carrot patch, but once all the carrots are planted in the playing board, this is a pretty easy-to-earn cooperative game for beginning game players. Some of the carrots in the patch have been "nibbled on" by Bunny and the others are still whole with no teeth marks. Players take turns throwing the color die and lead the wooden bunny playing piece to a matching color space on the board. The numeral on the space allows the player to pick that number of carrots. Players must sort the carrots, giving the nibbled ones to bunny and the whole ones to the farmer. At the end of the game players line up the carrots. Who has more—the farmer or the bunny? It's a game that reinforces color matching, counting, and looking at details (as in nibbled vs not nibbled). Marked for 3 and up, although we think it’s more realistically a game for 4-5s.
