Briarpatch The Very Hungry Caterpillar Game

This delightful game follows up on your child’s interest in Eric Carle’s book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”. Create a new butterfly every time you play. Spin to select color shapes. Use the pieces to decorate the butterfly. This is a wonderful way for children to learn shape and color recognition, matching and manual dexterity skills. This game also helps your child to identify one of the loveliest of nature’s creatures while at the same time will help them learn about the fun of playing games. This is a great classic game.

In 1992, John Donofrio and Martine Redman, a husband and wife team, founded Briarpatch. Their goal was to start a toy company dedicated to creating quality products based on classic literature. On a visit to a children’s bookstore, the couple found the inspiration for their successful business plan. With scissor and glue, they assembled their first prototype. This creation, the Very Hungry Caterpillar Game, is still a success 10 years later. Today Briarpatch maintains an inspiring, fun and educational product line. You can learn more about this company by visiting their website:
