Junior Scrabble

I didn't know this existed until my partner bought it for his older children, but we didn't really look at it as Reuben can't read or write confidently yet. Then he spotted it today and wanted to give it a go, it was a lot of fun and he started making some words. Isaac also joined in, mainly counting the letters.

We have the Mattel version with a double board, one side is like a picture crossword and is suitable for ages (I'd say) 4 to 6, the other side looks more like a conventional scrabble board but without values allocated to letters and no complex scoring system.
What I also liked about the game was the fact that the boys didn't really have to play a "proper" game, they could just mess around with the letters and familiarise themselves with how words are made.
