We love puzzles and N’s just getting into games, so I’ve been stocking up at Christmas and birthday with various games that have caught my eye.  I love the Orchard Toys which are perfect for pre-schoolers just learning about how to play games, so we’ve a few of those.

They’re obviously a brand on lots of people’s radars too, as we’ve ended up with a few duplicates.  Instead of selling or passing them on, I’ve decided to offer the duplicates as competition prizes on the blog.  So what’s on offer?

crazy chefs game

First up is the One, Two, Tree jigsaw puzzle.  N’s a big fan of jigsaws and I’m trying to encourage him to actually say numbers when asked.  He knows up to about 12 (maybe more, although I’ve not heard him), but rarely counts along when asked.  Everything’s on his terms at the moment.  So this puzzle should help.  It’s really brightly coloured like all of the Orchard Toys products, and is a good size for little hands to cope with.

The second one is the Crazy Chefs game.  We’ve not played this game yet (as I say, we had a lot of games and puzzles so it’s taking a while to get to them all).  If you’ve got children who love food and helping to cook, then this game would be perfect.

So, one lucky person will win both games if they enter via rafflecopter below by the closing date of 22nd February, 11.59pm.  Good luck to all entries, and feel free to let friends know
