Roll and Play is one of the first board games ever to be specifically designed for toddlers!

The game features a large plush die with a different colour on each side which can be tossed. Your child then selects a matching coloured card and performs the simple activity pictured on that card.

There are six coloured cards with action categories:

  • Red:  Action Cards.  Example:  Do a silly dance.
  • Yellow:  Example:  Make a sleep face.
  • Purple:  Body Parts.  Example:  Rub your belly.
  • Green:  Animal Sounds.  Example:  Roar like a lion.
  • Orange:  Example:  Clap your hands eight times.
  • Blue:  Example:  Find something blue.
