What I am
I am a series of different games that nurture family conversation, cognitive development, cooperation, self esteem and lessons of winning or losing gracefully.
‘Animal Upon Animal’ - is a classic wobbly stacking game with 29 wooden animals, including crocodiles, toucans, sheep, snakes, monkeys, penguins, hedgehogs, and lizards.
‘My Very First Orchard’ - is a fruit-picking game, with apples, pears, plums, and more. All pieces are wooden toys that can be used to support open-ended pretend play.
How I work
Instructions are simple. For example, in ‘Animal Upon Animal’ - players race each other to be the first to place all of my wooden animals upon the animal pile before any of the other players. A roll of the die tells players how many animals can be placed and whether any can be added to the alligator base.
I was started in 1938 by Eugen Habermaaß and Anton Engel, who built a factory to make fine wooden toys & games. My Orchard game is a classic preschool game that has been played for more than 30 years worldwide. ‘Animal upon Animal’ is 12 years old and one of my most popular games; it is also the winner of the Major Fun! Award and the recipient of the Mr. Dad Seal of Approval.
