Over the last few weeks the children have been playing a new Orchard Toys game with me – Money Match Cafe. We love Orchard Toys as whatever game we play I know there will be an educational element and that as well as being fun the children will take something away from the game – usually without even realising it.

Money Match Cafe helps children to learn the values of different coins, the prices of different things and which coins add up to which amounts. I immediately spotted that in Money Match Cafe there are two sets of playing pieces – red or green – for easier or harder game play. We started off with the green easier level but it’s great to know that as the children learn more we will be able to move on to the more difficult red level.

To start playing Money Match Cafe you set up tables – with cuddly toys as guests at the cafe. The aim of the game is to then serve guests their food and drink orders by placing the dish on your tray and taking it over to them. But, you can only serve them their food if you pick up a piece with coins adding up to the cost of the food.

Players take it in turns to pick up a card with coins on from the middle of the table. If the coins add up to one of the meals they have in front of them then they can spin a spinner to see which table they should serve it to. The first player to get rid of all their meals wins.

The children took their time playing the game – as they will until the coins and maths get familiar to them. They added up their coins and then looked for the corresponding numbers on the plates in front of them and it was great to see their minds working as they tried their best with the addition and reading involved.

Money Match Cafe kept the children’s attention throughout and they really enjoyed playing the game. I think having their cuddly toys around them really helped keep them engaged and added a new level of excitement that they haven’t had with other games before.

I know that Orchard Toys Money Match Cafe will help them to learn more about money and the more we play it the easier it will get for them to recognise different coins and what different sets of coins add up to.

  1. It’s really hard to choose just one because they’re all so great. I’ll go with Shopping List because it was the first game we got.

  3. There match and spell game looks good, my five year old daughter is getting really good with her writing so it would be great to have a game that helps with her spellings, she writes quite a few words right, then others she spells them as they sound xx

  4. I must admit, I’ve never bought any of their products before but I love the idea of this game for my daughter as she is stuggling with maths at school (although she’s exceptional at spelling and reading so we all have our different talents) and feel it will help progress whilst incorporating a bit of fun into things. Thanks for the chance and for introducing me to this brand x

  5. Their range is extensive and fabulous so almost impossible to choose a favourite product. For ou youngest, though, I would choose the brilliant Dotty Dinosaurs game.

  9. We love the fact that the WELLY PEG MONSTERS and EASTER BUNNY CUPS are free to download, but Phoenix really likes the FIRST WORDS COLOURING BOOK – “I don’t go over the lines” was a comment from her yesterday.
