What is it
Embark on a Snakes & Ladders adventure with your favourite woodland companions by sliding down wiggly worms or climbing tall branches to reach the finish line. Or, set off on a Ludo race to lead your animal to their home in the forest.
With a beautifully illustrated double-sided board, these classic games of Ludo and Snakes & Ladders can be found together in this delightful version with a woodland twist.

What our experts think
Our testers enjoyed having a choice of two traditional games and loved the friendly competition – this is a great way to help develop social skills like taking turns. Ludo requires some strategic thinking, while counting the spaces in Snakes & Ladders also helps younger children practise counting forwards from large numbers. We liked that the counters can be used for both games, so less equipment is needed.
It would be even better if...
The Snakes & Ladders board was quite busy so children sometimes needed to check whether they needed to move their counter.
