What our experts think
Smelly Wellies is a great game for encouraging shape and pattern recognition, counting and sorting into pairs. There was lots of discussion about what the monsters were wearing and what the children’s favourite monster was before the game began, which encouraged communication and sharing skills.
The game was colourful and bright and appealed to all the children, the game was also simple enough to let the children play without adult help once it was demonstrated, making it an ideal accessible game for teaching younger ones about turn-taking. We found Smelly Wellies more popular with our younger testers as the older ones thought it could be more challenging.
