Orchard Toys Shape Snap

Most people are familiar with the traditional game of ‘Snap’, which involves trying to match your card with that of another player. Shape Snap makes the game particularly appealing to young children, and helps them to learn about shapes, colours and counting along the way. The game is particularly suited to players aged from 3 to 6, but the colourful illustrations will appeal to much younger children as well, who will have fun identifying shapes, colours and images in the pictures. The game can be played by 2 to 4 players; all the 48 cards are shuffled and dealt face downwards to each player. The first player turns their top card over and places it in front of them, picture side up. Each of the other players does the same in turn. If a player sees any two top cards that match, they quickly shout “Snap”, and the first person to shout wins all the cars from both of the matching piles, which they place at the bottom of their own face-down pile of cards. Once children are familiar with the different shapes, they should also call out the name of the shape, i.e. “Star snap!” The game ends when one person has won by collecting all the cards. The cards are beautifully illustrated using bright, bold colours, and show a range of different shapes, some familiar, such as circles, squares and diamonds, and some more obscure, such as hexagons, cubes and cones. The cards are large, approximately 13cms x 19cms, and many of the pictures will show more than one example of the shape – you could ask your child how many stars they can see on the card. The game will help your child with maths and English (there is an educational guide on the box), and the cards can be used for so many other fun and educational activities.

How to play Giant Tumble Tower

Stack the wooden blocks in a sturdy tower (3 or 4 blocks wide, depending on how tall you want the finished tower to be), then each player take turns to pull out a block. If the whole stack crashes down the loser is declared! If your hands are steady enough to pull out the last block before the tower collapses, you win!

Giant Tumble Tower Party Games

The wooden blocks are free of branding, making this Giant Tumble Tower a popular choice for party games and as a wedding guest book alternative – give guests a marker pen and get them to write their message on the block before placing back on top of the tower.

Orchard Double Swing Frame

Orchard Single Swing

The pictures show similar products as examples.

The Orchard Double Swing Frame is designed and built in our own workshop, and is one of the few timber frames that will take adults as well as children, so your children will grow into it.
It is made from top quality 4″ tanalised timber, Radiata pine which helps to reduce “shakes” and splinters, and comes with a 10 year guarantee from rot, checked for strength and longevity. We use heavy duty Metal Swing Brackets and Swing Hooks and galvanised bolts.

The advantage of a big tall swing is that the pendulum effect is elongated giving a better quality swing for more fun.
This swing will also take our Cacoon range of seats as well as all other swing seats and accessories.

The Dimensions are:-

Swing
Width: 4.2m, Oblique legs
Depth: 3m, Right angled legs
Height: 2.6m (Hanging height 2.3m)

Assembly is easy requiring only 4 coach screws to assemble (the top beam is pre-assembled for you), however the swing assembly requires two persons due to the swing’s size and weight.

We recommend using our Swing Anchor Pack to secure your swing rather than digging a hole and cementing in. This is efficient, quick and easy, also meaning you can move the swing as necessary. SOLD SEPARATELY.
