Orchard Toys will be adding 12 products to its award-winning range, along with a refresh of its jigsaws collection at Toy Fair. 


From elephants and bears to slimy monsters and spaceships, the new additions offer something for all ages and interests, with ‘Learning Made Fun’ at the heart of each product.

Goose on the Loose headlines the range this year as Orchard’s fun family game, followed by two core educational heroes: Number Bears and Slimy Rhymes. Dress Up Nelly secures the spot in the line-up for best in preschool, supported by two staples: Shape Aliens and Rainforest Match. To round up the new games launches, following high demand for seasonal items, the company is launching three seasonal lines: Egg Surprise, Snowman Snap, and a new edition of Christmas Eve Box.

No Orchard Toys collection would be complete without a jigsaw and this year is no different, with four additions featuring two beautifully illustrated 150-piece jigsaws – At the Museum and Animal World – as well as redesigns to Orchard classics. All jigsaws in the Orchard Toys range include posters and learning guides to offer added value and extend learning.

Dress Up Nelly is a first colour matching game, designed to be played as a fun and simple activity to introduce children to colours, with the option of a shorter or longer game to suit different abilities. It features 30 bright, colourful, chunky, wipe clean cards, which are perfect for little hands.  

Slimy Rhymes is guaranteed to have children laughing as they match rhyming pairs to make silly sentences while holding their nose with their teeth together or in a squeaky voice, before feeding their cards to the slimy alien in this hilarious rhyming game. 

Number Bears is a perfect introduction to addition and subtraction, which helps teach number bonds in a fun way.  Players must race their bear safely home to its cubs by turning over number cards and solving mathematical problems. It can be played as a game or teaching aid to help develop addition and subtraction skills.

Blast off with Shape Aliens is a fun 3D board game. Players take turns to match their shape cards to aliens, before launching them onboard the 3D spaceship ready for blast off. Shape Aliens helps to develop colour matching skills, encourages shape recognition, and promotes observational skills. 

Goose on the Loose! Is a fun family game that features 3D geese to collect. Players shout ‘Honk’ when collecting their geese as they make their way around the board – but if they lose a goose, they must shout ‘Goose on the loose!’. This is guaranteed to be a firm favourite for young families. 

When it comes to the seasonal lines, Egg Surprise is an Easter-themed counting game, Snowman Snap is a festive favourite featuring fun snowmen, and – following huge success over the past two Christmas seasons – the new edition of Christmas Eve Box features a game, jigsaw, and colouring book.

Finally, At the Museum is an amazingly detailed 150-piece jigsaw featuring different museum exhibits from the Romans to the Vikings, dinosaurs to space, human biology and more – while Animal World is a 150-piece jigsaw featuring more than 117 animals and their habitats around the world.
