EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Let's Feed The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a fun and simple board game. Each game comes with 4 caterpillar pieces, 20 butterfly pieces, 58 movement cards, game board and instructions. The youngest player goes first! Each player moves their caterpillars from fruit to fruit, collecting a unique butterfly puzzle piece each time they stop to eat. They need to pick the exact fruit that's on the butterfly piece that they've landed on.

Players can move in any direction on the board including across the middle. If a player chooses to cross the middle of the game board, the butterfly in the middle counts as one space. The first player to collect all five puzzle pieces and build a beautiful butterfly wins the game! Children can practice their decision-making skills by moving any direction on the board. They mix and match the butterfly pieces which inspires creativity.

Next, we have The Very Hungry Caterpillar Spin & Seek ABC Game! In this game, spin the spinner and seek out letter cards that match their space. The letters and corresponding image cards are inspired by The World of Eric Carle. A player may only pick up an image card with a BIG letter when they land on a BIG letter space and a little letter when they land on a little letter space. If they select the correct image card, they keep the card for the rest of the game. If they pick up the wrong image card, the card is returned to the pile and the player's turn is over. If a player lands on a letter space with a corresponding image card that has already been collected, the player gets to spin and go again! The game ends when the last player reaches finish. Players count the number of image cards collected and the player with the most wins!

The game introduces children to the alphabet by teaching them the difference between big and little letters. Counting skills are reinforced as players count spaces while moving around the board.

Is It Fun?

The quality is very nice and very well made. Learning is involved and it's easy for young children to feel independent while playing.

Who It’s For

These are both great board games for children 3 years of age and up. Smaller children don't always get to be a part of the board game fun with older kids because a lot of games are too difficult for them to understand. But with this they'll feel included and be able to play on their own without much assistance.
