DOG RUSH or SHACHRER T'AKELEV
A fun game that develops thinking, concentration and visual abilities. The game is based on a cute story. The game participants are walking in the park with their dogs, when suddenly the dogs spot a rabbit and begin to chase it. All the dog tracks get tangled together. Who will be able to untangle them?
The game contains 6 leashes with a wooden dog on one side and a wooden bead on the other and 19 bones.
The bones are placed in a pile. Each player in turn picks up the six leashes with one hand, chooses a dog color and says it out loud and drops the leashes onto the table. The object of the game is to identify the dog in the declared color first and quickly pull the bead attached to the leash without touching the other leashes. Whoever succeeds wins a bone. A player who is wrong has to return a bone to the pile. If the player does not have any bones, he/she does not lose anything and the game continues. The game ends once a player has accumulated 4 tasty bones for his dog.
The game is suitable for children from the age of 4.
Price: 49.90 NIS.
In addition to the high-quality board games, Geoni has magnetic learning games. The games promote original thinking and strategy and develop understanding, differentiation and memory. The games are developed by professionals including an occupational therapist, a language editor and a speech therapist, in order to create interesting games that combine pleasure and interest for the child and the entire family.
The games meet Israeli standards, made of durable, rigid and non-toxic materials, and are recommended by occupational therapists and speech therapists.
