“With big, brightly colored wooden fruits and an oversized die, every part of My First Orchard is designed to teach toddlers the basics of how to play a board game: taking turns, rolling a die and making strategic choices.”

HABA My Very First Games – First Orchard is an easy variation of the classic “Orchard” game that takes nearly 10 minutes to complete and is suitable for one to four players for anyone aged more than two years. The First Orchard game has been enjoyed by families for more than 30 years.
The HABA My Very First Games – First Orchard contains one fruit basket, one raven, one color-symbol die, four red apples, four trees, four blue plums, four yellow pears, four green apples, five path cards, and a set of game instructions. The set can also be utilized as a pretend play set of wooden fruit.
The HABA My Very First Games – First Orchard encourages children to work as a team and children attempt to pick the fruits from the trees before the raven can reach the orchard. In case the players are successful in harvesting all the fruits before the raven reaches the end of the path, they win together. In case the raven gets to the end of the line first, they lose together against the raven.
Children need to put the four trees in a table’s center and place the related fruits on each card as shown. After that, they need to arrange the five path cards into a row next to the trees and place the raven ahead of the first path card. Get the die and basket ready.
The game is designed to enhance social skills as well as boost color recognition skills and counting skills among children.
