Review – Shelby’s Snack Shack Game

I was sent Shelby’s Snack Shack (a bit of a tongue twister there and we had a lot of fun practising saying that so laughter from the start) to review from Learning Resources.

It is a sort of board game aimed at children aged 4+

The children were very excited to receive it as they love dogs.

The game consists of

–          A tweezer in the shape of a dog, Shelby

–          A packet of small bones (which are really cute)

–          4 different coloured bowls (to keep the bones)

–          A board with 2 spinners

The game is really easy to play and suitable for a 4 year old to understand.

How the game is played:

There are two spinners, the first one tells you what to do and the second one dictates the number of bones

You spin the spinner and if you land on

-a bone :  collect the number of bones from the ‘sand’ and put it in your bowl. Obviously you pick the bones up with the Shelby tweezers.

– a seagull, you give back a number of bones to the beach

– a dog with a bone: you take a number of bones from another player (which is the fun part)

– a dog with a slipper: you miss a turn

The game is engaging and is great for teaching a young one to count. It also helps to teach addition and subtraction as you can ask how many in the bowl and how many are added and how many are in total or subtracted.

We enjoying playing it and the children even play it on their own because the rules are so easy to follow.

The Shelby Tweezers help to hone in on fine motor skills. Even my little 2 year old has a go at picking up bones.

I think this is a great educational toy, like all Learning Resources products.

Pros:

  • Great for teaching counting and even addition and subtraction
  • Engaging and interesting concept that holds attention
  • Targets a wide age range
  • Easy to understand rules

Cons:

  • Be careful with the bones with smaller children
