Be on the lookout for creatures of the land, sky, and sea. Designed especially for ages 4 to 7, the Junior edition of the popular card game Spot it! has an adorable animal theme that kids love. This travel-friendly matching game can be played five different ways.
Spot it! Jr. Animals is played with 31 cards that are each decorated with six colorful animals ranging from the cuddly to the exotic. The animals may vary in size and position, but there is always one, and only one, animal match between any two cards. The aim of the games is always the same: be the first to spot it. The mini games vary in challenge level, starting with the simplest game, “Twins,” which has players racing to find the match between two cards. The first to call it out wins the hand, and then two new cards are played. The player with the most cards wins. In other games, players try to get rid of cards or even look for matches between three cards. Easily adaptable to age and ability, Spot it! Jr. Animals can be played competitively or cooperatively, at a fact pace or while taking your time. But don’t be fooled by the Jr. status, the variety of images will challenge the eyes of all ages!
Your child will learn to name over 30 animals, expanding their vocabulary and inspiring their curiosity about the animal kingdom. This is a great game to work on visual perception, speech-language skills, and sharpen cognitive processing speed. Handling the round cards exercises children’s fine motor skills as well. Playing Spot it! Jr. is a wonderful way to teach good sportsmanship, turn taking and other important social skills.
The game cards are stored in a durable tin canister that is easy to toss into a backpack or purse, so you can take the fun with you wherever you go. Doctor’s waiting rooms and restaurants will become the perfect opportunities to play a few rounds.
For children learning their ABC's and 123's, Spot it! Numbers & Shapes and Spot it! Alphabet will have them preschool prepared in no time. To get the whole family involved, play the original Spot it! game. Also available are MLB, NHL, On the Road, Halloween, Basic English, and Spot it! Party.
