Head out to the Orchard with this Cooperative Game for Toddlers!
Our Bestselling Game now has a Spanish Language Version with multi-lingual instructions and English instructions. The box is in Spanish but for game play, no Spanish is needed.
This cooperative board game allows players to work together as a team to roll the dice and pick the matching fruit from the orchard before the raven makes it down the path to steal it all. My Very First Games are designed by educators to help young children build positive relationships, work together, compromise and share, win and lose gracefully, develop patience, and so much more.
Our bestselling toddler and preschool game is a perfect first game that will last for years of family play. Treasured by families for over 30 years, this classic toddler game is designed for 1-4 players ages 2 years and up. First Orchard makes an ideal gift to give for birthdays, holidays, and any other special occasion.
No reading required! This preschool game encourages social skills, such as taking turns, team spirit, waiting patiently, and following directions, while reinforcing color recognition, counting, early science concepts, strategy, sorting and categorizing, dexterity, grasping, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor skills.
First Orchard is easy to set up and can be played right away and has a high re-playability with options for free play and solo play. Durable, high-quality German-made wooden game components make this game last for years of play. The quality PEFC-certified sustainably-sourced wooden game components are perfect for small children’s hands.
Open up the sturdy box to find: 16 large wooden fruit pieces (4 green apples, 4 red apples, 4 yellow pears, 4 blue plums), a chunky color die, a wooden raven, 5 path cards, and 4 trees.
Board games provide hours of entertainment, but little hands require larger play pieces that are easy to handle. Playing the First Orchard game gives your toddler the chance to enjoy the original Orchard game, but in a way that’s meant to be enjoyed by small hands and curious minds. HABA USA offers My Very First Games for children so that they can have fun with a kid-friendly version of the timeless game. Your child can learn to play with the family or with friends.
Children can develop their storytelling abilities as they create adventures for the raven and use the wooden fruit for kitchen and imaginative store play, as well as open-ended loose parts play. Kids can even create their own solo play version to compete against the raven!
Game Idea: Working as a team, the children try to pick the fruits from the trees before the raven reaches the end of the path.
If the players succeed in harvesting all the fruit before the raven reaches the orchard, they win together! If the raven gets there first, they lose together against the quick, ravenous raven.
This cooperative Orchard game is designed to foster social skills and understanding of game rules, develop color recognition skills, and teach counting by ones.

Use a cloth dampened with warm water. You may use a small amount of vinegar essence mix combined with water. This works extremely well in destroying bacteria and cleaning wooden toys. Do not submerge in water or place in dishwasher. Disinfectants (even organic baby wipes) should not be used as they can damage the water based coatings that protect the colorful stains beneath.
