    Race and count your 3D character from shop to shop, using play money to buy lots of different items! The winner is the first person to collect 6 items on their board. This fun board game offers older Orchard Toys fans longer and more varied gameplay than some of our traditional matching games.

    Children will learn about handling money and giving change as well as developing their imagination as they take on the roles of shop keeper and banker, playing with pretend money. The game also encourages good manners, as players say 'please' and 'thank you' to the shopkeeper every time they buy an item. Children can also add their own tills and purses to the game for extra play value!


    1 jigged game board
    48 item cards
    4 shopping bag boards
    4 characters
    4 character stands
    Play money
    1 dice

    Hands-on learning is so often the best; we can encourage our children to do workbooks about money (and these certainly have their place) but playing games is much more fun and will really instill the principles in a way they will remember – and they will see it as fun. This fun shopping board game will teach children about handling money and giving change as they travel around the board from shop to shop, using pretend money to buy all manner of different items.

    The rules are clearly explained and simple to follow, so there’s no lengthy setting up or explaining to do; the winner is the first to collect all their six allocated items – but beware! You mustn’t overspend. Role play is a key part of this game, as each player takes it in turn to be either shopper or shopkeeper. Players travel around the board, visiting the correct shop to purchase their items. Of course, they will need to greet each other politely, so the game also encourages polite conversation and increases vocabulary.

    Great experience and confidence-building for real-life shopping. Familiar shops and objects are used, including a market, bakery, newsagent and greengrocer. The game includes a game board; 48 item cards; 4 shopping bag boards; 4 characters with stands; play money; dice and instruction leaflet. It’s good to know that the instructions are always available for download from the Orchard Games website too. This is an excellent game, fun to play with lots of educational value; it’s one children will enjoy playing over and over agai

    I bought a selection of Orchard Toys during a trip to London. My daughters, of 3 and 6, just love Pop to the Shops which is a very good game to learn about handling money. It is very lively and everybody has their own shop. It is really special!

    Thank you to Orchard Toys for making learning fun! My daughter thinks this game is great! She has just begun school and it is really helping her understanding of maths, especially handling money. The simple format and colourful board really appeal.
