A fun first reading and spelling activity.

  • Encourage letter recognition and word building
  • Two ways to play!
  • Top 5 bestseller
  • Perfect for preschoolers
  • Five-star rated game

Match and Spell encourages letter recognition, teaches phonetic word building and promotes matching of pictures and words, from simple words like 'cat' to more complex four-letter words. There are two ways to play, and the game is designed for both guided and independent word building.

In the first version of the game, players must match the letter cards to the letters shown on their board in the correct order to build a word. This is a simple matching game, which is a great way to introduce letter shapes and sounds. As children get more familiar with the letter sounds, they will progress to reading the words out loud. In the more challenging version of the game, players use the blank side of their boards and use the letter cards to build the word of the picture shown. These must be placed in the correct order.

With friendly illustrations and simple gameplay that progresses as children learn, it's no surprise that Match and Spell is our bestselling language and literacy game! Match and Spell Next Steps is an excellent follow-on from this game for children aged 5 and over.


This game has been designed to introduce children to spelling a range of first words. It is not a full alphabet game and therefore does not include all letters of the alphabet.


Contents:

  • 12 double-sided 3 letter word boards
  • 8 double-sided 4 letter word boards
  • 68 letter cards
  • 1 instruction leaflet

Orchard Toys Features

Orchard Toys started out around a kitchen table making blocks and stencils for a local nursery school. Now, over 50 years later, we ship to over 50 different countries around the world and are recognised as a leading manufacturer of educational games and puzzles both in the UK and globally.

Children learn through play and that’s why we are passionate about developing games and jigsaws that strike the perfect balance between education and fun! All of our games and jigsaws are tested in schools and nurseries with both children and teachers to ensure this all-important balance.

All of our games and jigsaws are designed with education in mind, working in conjunction with teachers, nursery professionals and children themselves to ensure they maintain the perfect balance between educational benefits and play value.

We focus on a number of key learning skills, from specific goals such as learning different colours or counting, to more general life skills like turn-taking, social skills and hand-eye coordination.
