Who can resist miniature wooden fruit that you collect in tiny baskets? Not me! And preschoolers are thrilled to gather all the fruit before the raven gets it.
This is a cooperative game, so all the players are working together, which is nice for when Ronan wants to play a game with a friend. Four-year-olds are not good losers, I've found.
There are other versions of this game, including a mini one in a tin, and a large-scale one that's over two feet square, with Haba's regular-size wooden fruit.
Haba's quality is really exceptional. This game will last forever, assuming you can hang onto all the little fruit. Not suitable for the under-two set because of the choking risk.
Many online retailers sell this; so Google for the best price and shipping deal.
