What our experts think

One of the main attractions of the “Letter, Number or Bug Game” is its interactive nature. The game encourages children to be physically active by running around to match cards and identify categories, which can be particularly engaging for older children. For instance, a 10-year-old girl took charge of the game, acting as a taskmaster and keeping younger players motivated and involved. This aspect of the game can promote leadership skills and teamwork among children, making it a fun group activity. The game focuses on basic educational skills such as letter and number recognition, which are essential for early childhood development. The matching and categorising tasks help children practice these skills in a playful context.

While the game is generally easy to use, it often requires adult supervision, especially during the initial setup and explanation of the rules.  The game’s reception among children varies. Older children, especially those around 10 years old, found the game engaging and took on leadership roles to help younger participants. This interaction was observed to be energetic and competitive, with children enjoying the physical aspect of running around and matching cards.
