My son just turned 3 in April - he found out about Mickey Mouse Clubhouse about 6 months ago and LOVES it. I saw this HiHo Cherry-O game in Walmart and knew I had to get it for him. Amazon was less expensive than Walmart so we bought it here.
The game comes with 3 characters - Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy - and they each are holding a basket. It comes with green, red, and blue "cherries" (it calls them all different fruits), plus a couple extra of each color in case some get lost. It also comes with the spinning wheel which is a little different than the original game - from what I remember anyway. The spaces on the spinning wheel each show a number of colored berries between 0 and 3, so if you are the red pieces and you land on a space with 1 red berry shown, you take 1 berry off your place on the board to take to your "picnic". If you land on a space with no red berries, you take none. This is really helping my son rationalize how numbers work.
You can't fit all your berries from the board into the baskets that the characters are holding, but there is a space included in the board where you can dump your berries. The pieces are very well made. Great game!
Have a Disneyfied picnic in this Mickey Mouse Clubhouse edition of the classic HiHo! Cherry-O game! Preschoolers have so much fun picking fruit to fill their baskets, they don't even realize they're developing and practicing math skills such as counting, addition and subtraction! Everybody picks a Mickey, Donald or Goofy character mover and then takes turns picking pretend cherries, blueberries and apples from their tree. Whoever picks all the fruit off their tree and puts it in their character mover’s basket is the winner! When it comes to a fruity, Mickey Mouse way to sharpen kids' math skills, you couldn't "pick" a better game! Copyright 2014 Disney. HiHo! Cherry-O and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.
