What is it
In this fun and challenging game, players take turns to sift through the big white Dig In! bowl to try to find the six coloured pieces they need to fill their picture card. But be quick – there’s only 15 seconds on the clock!
Then it’s the pandemonium of the final round – forget ‘taking turns’ and just go for it as everyone dives in for their missing pieces!
Dig In! features a mix of 128 colourful pieces to find including teddies, trains, dogs, planes, keys, bikes, and ice creams.

What our experts think
There was a lot of laughter and competitiveness with this game The rules are simple so children can pick it up very quickly and get right into the action. Racing against the buzzer was very exciting for our testers too, which is also great practice for focusing under time pressure.
We also found children developing different strategies (e.g. finding the colour they needed first) improving their logical thinking skills. The game also takes a lot of focus and concentration to be able to find the right pieces.
Games like this can develop social skills by getting children to play together and letting them experience friendly competition. We also like that there is a simpler version in which players only have to match the object (and not the colour) making it easier for younger children to join in.
It would be even better if...
There are a lot of little pieces so a bag to keep them all in would be handy.
