Made to measure

24th October 2003 at 01:00
Smiling worms, bees, spiders and ladybirds provide the fun in Measure Up!, a set of activity games for young children. They're American, so the text calls them "bugs" as they compete in crawling up a wall, diving into a pond, spitting out watermelon seeds and raiding sandwiches from a picnic. A measuring tape invites us to see how far they've moved or check the dimensions of their trophies. Measure Up! costs pound;9.99 from The Happy Puzzle Company, PO Box 24041, London NW4 2ZN.
