The First Times Tables game by Orchard Toys is the perfect introduction to the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Practice your skills, learn and master the times tables by playing the game.
There are two ways to play.
Spin the spinner to see which card you take from the piles of banana, strawberry or blueberry pancake cards. Solve the times tables sentence, then use the spatula to flip the card. The answer is on the reverse. If you are correct, place it on your plate. If incorrect it goes back under the pile. The winner is the person who collects the most on their plate. But, watch out for the "splat". If the spinner lands on the "splat" you have dropped your pancake and miss a turn.
The other way to play this game is to add a timer. Orchard toys have a free timer available in the orchard toys app if you need one. Simply set the timer and the winner is the player who has the most fruit when the timer ends the game.
You can also use the number line boards provided, to self check your answers. This means the game will work well even for those children who are yet to master the 2s 5s and 10s times tables.
There are multiple ways to use this game as a teaching and learning resource as well.
Count the fruit to show "groups of" or "lots of". Children will learn that times tables is grouping quantities of the same number. This also demonstrates that times tables are just adding the same number repeatedly, only it is quicker! For example 2 + 2 + 2 is 3 lots of 2
Use the fruit for sequencing, and counting by 2s 5s or 10s For example 2 4 6 8

Love these guys very helpful and very prompt
Love the oilslick colour. The hailstorm is perfect too keep my hands busy and my mind calm. I love the cold feel of this product. Also perfect pocket size.
So soft but firm to squeeze. It's like a 2 in 1 squishy.
Absolutely love this. I have this on everyday and get mesmerised watching the dancing jellyfish change colours and the balls floating around.
This store is a favourite spot for my son! It's a one-stop shop for all his sensory needs, and the best part is that everyone is so friendly and non-judgmental here.
My one year old is absolutely obsessed with this massive dimple - fat brain toys never fail
Absolutely amazing magnetic board, my daughters loves this and helps so much with fine motor development.
This timer helps with staying at the dinner table and eating for 5 minute increments. Once the timer is finished my son can have a few minutes play. Then he comes back and starts the timer again. It’s very easy for him to turn himself and watch.
Our son loves these plush balls, they’re super cute & durable.
We have one of these fidget spinners at every regular place our son attends.
Really great product. The weight is perfect to offer some added sensory input.
Such a good way to carry our sons headphones around. The case also fits other items like his chew & small fidget.
We have multiple pairs of these, they’re so good!
This is a great portable alternative to the galaxy light & Alexa in our sons room. We can get the same galaxy lights & white noise on the go.
