Orchard Toys Alphabet Lotto


This simple lotto game will help children to recognize letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. Choose which side of the board you play on and try and be the first player to find all the cards that match the letters or pictures on your lotto board. There are 4 different ways to play: matching picture to picture, letter to letter, letter to picture or picture to letter! The different play styles develop with children’s ability, from early stage matching to recognising words from pictures.

Orchard Toys Match and Spell Game


A fun first reading and spelling game which encourages letter recognition, teaches basic phonetic word building, and promotes matching of pictures and words. Match and Spell is designed for both guided and independent word building, featuring a range of words from simple words like ‘cat’ to more complex four letter words.

There are two ways to play this educational game, firstly by matching letter cards to the ones shown on your word board to introduce letter shapes and sounds. In the more challenging version of the game, players must collect the letters to spell the picture that is on their board – in the right order!

Match and Spell is the perfect literacy game to introduce letters, sounds, and eventually words, with simple gameplay which progresses as children learn.

Rhyme Matching

Use these cards to play Rhyming Soup, Rhyming Bingo or Odd One Out. Instructions for the games are provided on the box. Can either be played at a pre-reading level using the images or using the words on the reverse. Can also be used independently with students matching the puzzle pieces.

A fun and interactive activity set that will support a variety of early literacy skills such as alphabet awareness and letter recognition.
