1, 2, Hüpferei

Meine ersten Spiele


The frog pond is set up using the box bottom and the foldable inlay forming a ramp; in front of the box, for the standard game Eins, zwei, kleine Froschhüpferei you lay out the board showing the side marked with the mole and set up a staircase using the three wooden blocks, leading to the rim of the box and the beginning of the water ramp. Each child is given a frog and you use the light-green die.

In your turn you roll the die and move your frog the resulting number of pips, of course the assisting adult helps with counting. Each square on the board is one step and also each step of the stairs. Whoever reaches the top step first, can let his frog slide into the water with the next step. If you manage be first to do this, you win. In the version Eins, zwei, drei, große Froschhüpferei you use the other side of the board, marked with a mouse, the track now has two obstacle squares with thistles. If you would have to enter such a spot, you cannot do so, but must stop on the square in front of it and try to jump over the thistle square in your next turn. Again, the winner is whoever slides his frog into the pond first. Of course, you can also use the components for free playing and for telling and inventing stories, but also use the components as training materials for counting up  to 5 - there are dragonflies, fish, water lilies, ducklings, eggs or flowers that can be counted.

1,2, Hüpferei provides us once again with a game in best quality, with a first introduction to game rules, and the jumping of the frogs from steps to steps nicely illustrates the concept of steps and tracks on a board and also of obstacles.
