Our top selling toddler game, this is a great "first" game for toddlers. This is part of the Haba First Games series, designed to introduce young children to the concepts of game play. Players will try to pick all the fruit from the trees before the raven reaches the end of the path. The wooden fruit pieces are chunky and can be used for pretend play as well.
