Moo & Baa Game

Moo & Baa Game

Fall 2010 Games
Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: HABA
Price: $20.00

Moo & Baa comes with nine tiny wooden frogs, sheep, and cows in five colors, four farm-printed playing cards, and three fabric bags. The figures are divided amongst the three bags, and players take turns pulling one out of the bag of their choice. If the color of the figure matches the color of a player's farm card, the figure is matched to the corresponding outline. If it matches another player's card, that player receives the figure. Blue animals live in the bags, and they are placed back in them when drawn. A player wins when she has filled her entire card. If the game is too challenging or not difficult enough, try the instruction manual's variations. Younger testers were entertained by the charming figures, even if they could not follow the game. Even for older kids, playing will help hone color recognition, fine motor skills, and memory skills.
