Baa Baa - a colour matching board game for preschoolers


In my opinion Orchard Toys make some of the best educational games and puzzles for children.

Now that my son is three, he's looking for more stimulating and complicated games to play. Baa Baa is a colour matching game for children ages 3 to 5 and can be played with between two to four players. At three, my son doesn't just have to play with me but the game can easily involve other children of the same age. It requires a little parental supervision to avoid them making up their own rules but will happily keep them engaged.

What's Included
4 boards (one for each player) with six different coloured circles. Each board is different too.
A spinner with all the different colours and a shepherd to point.
Very cute sheep with knitwear in various colours. They have simple plastic bases so that they can stand up.

How to Play
Each player has their own board.
Take it turns to spin the shepherd.

Spin the shepherd.


If the player has the colour the shepherd is pointing to on your board they find the sheep with the matching colour and place it on their circle.

Each sheep is a little different


If the shepherd points to the white segment with the sheep dog then any colour can be chosen.
The winner is the first to fill all their circles.

This is a really fun game and a great way to include all the family. As well as being enjoyable it has the added bonus of being educational too.

Educational Benefits
Colour recognition is the obvious benefit. The simple colours of green, blue, yellow and red are included but also purple, pink, orange, black and grey. Turn taking is great to develop and this is a simple fast moving game that gets everyone involved. Checking which colour, looking for a matching sheep and finding the coloured circle supports observational skills especially as each player board is different.

If you're looking for a fun game for your child or a gift that will be played with over and over then I recommend Baa Baa.
