Galt Where's My Mummy? - Educational Christmas Toy Review

18:55

In preparation for Christmas Ethan and I are reviewing some fantastic educational toys to compile our list of the 'Best Educational Toys for Toddlers' this Christmas.  Our next toy was given to us by Galt Toys, it's the Where's My Mummy? game.  It's a game based on matching Mummy and baby animals, which is great for Ethan's Knowledge and Understanding of the World.


The game sells for £8.99 on the Galt website (there is also free postage with the code on the website until the end of December, perfect for buying Christmas gifts!)  I think it's very good value for money as it is a lovely game.

The game is aimed at children from 2-5 years old.  I was really unsure about any sort of game for 2 year olds, but Galt have very cleverly written 2 different sets of instructions (one for younger and one for older children).  So Ethan was able to play a simple matching game now, and when he's older we can play a memory game as well.  Games are an excellent way to learn about turn taking as part of children's Personal, Social and Emotional Development, so it will be interesting to see Ethan play the game with some of his friends.


Ethan picked up the game really quickly, we gave a game card to each of us and Ethan chose the Mummy cards that were face down from the middle.  He then decided whose card it was for and matched it.  For today Ethan did all of the steps himself, of course when playing with friends we'll make sure that everyone gets a turn.  I really liked that there were lots of opportunities for Ethan to learn about animals, or we could simply match them by how they looked.  I introduced some new Mummy and baby animal names to him, and we talked specifically about the trickier ones (like the butterfly Mummy and caterpillar baby).  I was really impressed with how quickly Ethan got the hang of the game and how engrossed he was in playing the game until all of the cards were full.  I would definitely recommend this game for younger and older toddlers, it's fantastic.
