The easiest of the games, The Bird's Nest, has players proceed along a color-coded path with movement advanced according to the role of the die. Garden Party has a similar color-matching theme with play focused on collecting and matching flowers in a flowerbed. King of the Castle introduces more components to the color-matching game play and incorporates chance cards into the mix. Tasty Bones challenges players to match different types of bones, and in more advanced game play, has game pieces moving in various directions. <P> <P><b>Supports Basic Color and Concept Matching</b> <br>4 First Games is a collection of children's games with a common matching theme that begins with easy-to-follow directions for simple turn-taking and color matching skills for very young preschoolers. Two games are directed at slightly older preschoolers, which introduce more complicated play rules that still focus on color matching skills but also movement around the board and the beginning of game strategy. With the fourth game, for children beginning school, the matching becomes more conceptual and the movement around the board offers more options and introduces the need for strategic thinking. In each game, fine motor and spatial skills, basic movement, attention to game rules and patience are sharpened and help build a child's confidence. <P> <P><b>Colorful Designs Engage Kids</b> <br>Four exciting quick-play games offer young children opportunities to interact with friends and family while learning basic game play skills that teach as they entertain. The games engage children with positive reinforcements through basic game play patterns that develop color-and concept-matching, counting and directional skills. <P> <b>What's In The Box?</b> <br>Two 2-sided game boards, 6 colored game pieces, 1 colored die, 44 game cards, and 1 set of instructions. <br clear="all"> <table cellpadding="30" cellspacing="0" border="0" align="center"> <tr> <td align="center"> <img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/toys/detail-page/2011/.jpg" alt="" width="560",height="250"><br><br><font size="1"><b><em></b></em></font> </td></tr> </table> <br clear="all"> Read More
