A spin-and-move counting game perfect for first time game players.
How to Play:
The baby chicks have flown the coop! All players work together to help Mother Hen collect her chicks and bring them back to the coop. To start, players place the 40 baby chicks all around the board. Mother Hen is on start. The object of the game is to get all 40 baby chicks back inside the coop before Mother Hen gets to the last space on the board. Players spin and move Mother Hen, counting the number of spaces she travels. For each space travelled, players collect that number of baby chick markers and place them in the coop. But watch out for the fox! If the spinner lands on the fox a baby chick is removed from the coop. Players take turns, but work together – players count aloud together, collect the number chicks together and, if they collect them all, players win together!
What is a cooperative game?
A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun!
Count Your Chickens!™ eliminates stress, empowers a young learner, and teaches kids that playing together can be fun! Kids practice counting and cooperation. Help your kids learn at an early age how easy it is to cooperate!
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: ADD/ADHD,
"I wrote up rules so that my students could see and work on the directions clearly. I made sure that they could match the pictures of the different animals (for the spinner) and made sure that they could identify the pictures.
I held onto the baby chicks in two little baskets. I had many students who just wanted to move them and play so this helped contain them! Some students used visual wait cards to play and this worked well for helping them to take turns!"

My nephew (4 yrs old) liked playing it the first couple of times, but has not had any interest in it after the third or fourth time.
With always egg-ceptional customer care you CAN count your chickens before they're hatched. Our customer received prompt assistance. Please visit our Returns & Exchanges Center if any Fat Brain Toy fails to shell out lasting excitement.

We love the family interaction this toy offers. It promotes group participation so everyone wins or loses - - - it helps to show that you don't necessarily win every time. Great game for kids. Our 4 year old loved it. (The adults, too!!)
