I'm a little disappointed with this game if I am honest. We already have a couple of Orchard Toy Lotto games, which are great and we've had lots of fun playing them. This, as another lotto game, is absolutely fine and it does kind of bring up the topic of time for discussion, but I wouldn't go so far as saying that it is a must-have teaching resource for helping children to learn to tell the time. It can be played without telling the time. If anything it is a much more boring version of lotto, with no great benefit really. The children haven't shown much interest in it. I don't think it will get much use in our household - it will be very short-lived.
A nice game for young children but the name is misleading as it doesn't help tell the time at all. It's about which activities are done at different times of the day - not telling the time. My 5yr old son gets a bit bored after 1 game.
Initally the game was good fun and my 6 year old really enjoyed it. However on the third time of playing it, he realised the clocks on the cards were colour coded, so he automatically knew which game board to look at. I kind of felt this defeated the object of the game, because instead of him actually looking through all the clocks on the back of the boards, studying the times, he was just looking on one board (we played with 2 each) and matching. For that reason i would say this was more appropriate for 3-5 year olds and i wouldn't recommend for any older, definitely not a 7/8/9 year old.
I usually love Orchard games but this ones been a bit of a fail unfortunately. I wish I had read the other reviews before buying!
The names a bit misleading, you literally have to pick card form a pile and the player with the matching activity/ time shouts “Time” before placing the card on their board. My very nearly 5 year old just looked at the pictures as the time aspect when over his head.
I can’t see this game helping to teach the time though in all honesty. The cards have a digital clock, a picture of an analogue clock and the time in words (which my son can’t yet read) but with 4 boards and 6 cards to collect that’s only 24 different times to learn.
A great little game for introducing children to "the big hand is on the ....." and "the little hand is on the ...." The idea of the play is you select a card from the pile and read aloud the time. The player who has the activity at this time on their game card calls out "time" and says for example "time to get up". There are 6 cards to collect for each of 4 game cards - the first to collect all 6 wins. The game cards are 2 sided - on one side are pictures that match exactly to the playing cards for younger children and on the other side are just clocks for older children who no longer need the help of the pictures.
I love Orchard toys, they are all lovely quality and this is the same. However I thought this was rather boring and unimagnitive game. We played it once as I was trying to help my daughter learn to tell the time but honestly I think a play clock would have been a better bet. Basically you have to match cards with digital and analogue time or for younger kids pictures of what you do at each time eg eat breakfast, go to school and the correct time. May be ok for really young kids but definitely not Orchard's best game
Good game, under 5s will get bored easily as this is very much a teaching game, and not a "fun" game. Good at teaching how time works though, each card offers a photo of an activity and also the time in numbers and words. I think good for 5-7 year olds who are learning the time at school.
