Magic Spelling Game from Orchard Toys

Posted on February 25th, 2019

I am thrilled to bring to you a wonderful new game for 2019 from Orchard Toys, the masters of making learning fun. Magic Spelling combines wizardry with learning spellings in a fast paced, quick thinking game. It is aimed at age 5 – 7 years; we think it can happily extend beyond this. If you have a child who finds spellings a chore then this is the game for them. Read on to discover more and for your chance to win.

How to Play Magic Spelling

It’s a race against time to spell your word before the timer runs out, but this isn’t enough to make it fun so Orchard toys have added spell books to fill with gruesome ingredients and a magic wand to search for your letters. Beat the timer and you get to rub your card to reveal if your spelling was correct. Your reward is a yucky ingredient for your spell book.

What we love

  • There are two colours of cards so younger children can just choose easier spelling and older children harder spellings.

  • Searching for the letters against the timer with a wand is a great way to build fun and excitement into what could be a dull task of learning spellings.

  • Easy to adapt the basic rules to suit your child.

  • We found the longer words hard to find in time, but just allowed a turn of the timer for longer words.

  •  You could even extend the game by making your own cards with new words once the pack provided were learned.
