What It Is
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Twirl & Toss Game is a skill-and-action game for preschoolers that stars the classic Eric Carle book character The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The game comes with an electronic twirling caterpillar with Velcro spots. There are 12 pieces of soft pretend fruit: three apples, three plums, three pears, and three oranges. Each player picks one type of fruit and takes the three fruit pieces. Then turn on the caterpillar and toss your fruit pieces at the caterpillar to try and get the fruit to stick to the Velcro spots. If you miss, you have to run after your fruit, retrieve it, and try again. The first player to get all three of their fruit pieces on the caterpillar or leaves wins the game. The game is for two to four players.
Why It’s Fun
This is a cute and fast-paced game that fans of the book will enjoy. Throwing the fruit helps with coordination, and chasing after the fruit gets kids up and active.
