A lotto, lotto laughs

Children over the age of six will really use their eyes and brains when they play Measures Lotto. They should have a lot of fun too.

It's an attractive and ingenious game that requires players to read and interpret scales relating to length, mass and capacity. Small cards with inscriptions like 600g or 900ml have to be matched with sets of photographs. How tall is the giraffe? How much orange juice is in the jug? What does the pasta weigh? Although the answers are all there, you need to think hard to find them. Measures Lotto costs pound;9.99 + VAT from LDA.
