Red Rover is a fab new game for preschoolers from Fisher Price and my girls were more than happy to put it through its paces.
Rover is an electronic talking dog and the aim of the game is to find his bones which have different letters, shapes, numbers and colours. You set up the game by placing the twelve bones around the room then you press Red Rover’s nose and he calls out which bone he wants. Your little one then runs to find the correct bone and feeds it to Red Rover. Whoever helps to find the most bones the fastest wins.
This is a really fab memory matching game plus the run around element means that it keeps their interest longer than a traditional board game might. There are two levels of play too depending on the age/ability of the child so you can start off just playing with colours then move up to letters, numbers or shapes. I particularly liked too that when you have finished playing, all of the bones fit into Red Rover’s backpack so there are no lost pieces to hunt for next time that you play.
The girls loved this game and had an absolute ball playing it so this gets a huge thumbs up from us. It’s priced at £19.99 and I’d say it’s good value given just how much they’ve played with it! The game is recommended for ages 3+ and is for 2-4 players. I think this is perfect for preschoolers. It does require 3 x AA batteries though that are not included.*For the purpose of this review we were very kindly sent the Red Rover Game from Fisher Price for free
