Here at Jumbo, we are proud to be contributing towards creating a cleaner and more sustainable world, by transforming old shampoo bottles, old paper and discarded wrapping paper into brand new pre-school games.
The first games to be released in our new range aimed at children aged 3+, include; Catch the Mouse, Colour Chameleon, Peek-a-Boo, and Honey Yummy.
Catch the Mouse is an exciting hand-eye reaction-based game. Take it in turns as Lightning the cat to catch the mice. If Lighting can’t catch the mice, everyone playing as the mice gain points. However, if Lightning catches any of mice, the player playing as Lightning gains a point. Once everyone has played as Lightning, count up all your points and the player with the most points wins the game.
Colour Chamelon is a colour matching game for little ones to learn how to recognise colours. Each player chooses a chameleon card and takes six spots (one of each colour), placing them next to their chameleon card. Look closely at your chameleon card. The aim is to fill in the missing spots on your chameleon from head to tail. You do so by rolling the dice. The first player to collect all six colours of the chameleon wins the game!
Peek-A-Boo is a memory game for children. Can you guess who is hiding under the coloured cards? Roll the dice and peek through the card of the same colour. Say out loud which of the pictures you are covering. This way, the children learn the name of the animals and remember all of the pictures. If you get it right, you get to keep the animal card. If you get it wrong, cover the card again. The turn then goes to the player on your left. The player who manages to collect the most animal cards is the winner.
Honey Yummy is a fun co-operative game that encourages children to work together as a team to completely fill the beehive with honey. If the bees succeed in filling the beehive completely with honey before Boris the bear reaches the beehive, all the players win the game. But if Boris is faster than the bees and reaches the entrance of the beehive before it is completely full, he wins the game.
This is not our first step to being a more green-focused company. Did you know we already use 100% recycled cardboard for our jigsaw puzzles and this is just the beginning for a long-term sustainable project delivering on.
