This wacky, quacky memory and matching game combines developmental skills for young children with the fun of a "My First Game," helping kids with shape recognition and colors. Switch on the circular pond, and the ducks start swimming - the bottom side of each duck has a colored shape. Players take turns picking up a duck and looking at the color and shape; if it matches their colored shape, they get to keep the duck. If it doesn't match, they put it back. The ducks continue to swim, so it's more challenging than a traditional memory game but easy enough for even the youngest duck lovers to play. The first player with 3 ducks that match their shape wins! Includes motorized "pond," 12 ducks, and complete instructions. Requires 2 AA batteries (not included).

This is the perfect matching game for children. It is for 4 players and ages 3+. There are 4 shapes to choose from. Pick your shape and try to match it as the ducks swim by. There are 3 ducks for each shape.
I took this game to work for my 2+ year old toddler class to try it. They loved it and ask to play with it almost daily. What I love about it is how easy it is for them to understand the concept of grabbing just one of the 4 ducks, turning it over and seeing if it is their color. The hardest part for this age group was placing the ducks back in the pond without knocking all of the ducks up but if you watch the video of my teen and her friend play below, you can see that it isn't always the easiest thing. My toddler class love pressing the button and starting the ducks going around so we have to take turns doing just that too.
Honestly, this game is fun for all ages. If you want a game to play with your little ones or even for older folks who love playing but have trouble with their cognitive abilities, this is a fun, easy game to teach.
