Description: The Fisher-Price Octopus Dominoes game is designed to help teach children how to recognize colors or number amounts by building octopus arms matching domino colors or numbers end to end. The game is for 2 to 4 children ages 3 to 7 years old. It has two levels: beginners and more advanced. The game includes a purple octopus face and 36 purple cardboard "octopus arm" dominoes. The dominoes have 2 oval-shaped colors on one side, and 2 dice-type dot numbers on the other side (numbers 1-6). Both sides may have a gloved hand opposed to a color or number on the dominoes. To play either game, the octopus face must be placed in center of the play area. Beginners use the color side of the dominoes. Use purple ovals to start a new arm, then grow "arms" by adding matching colors end to end. Finish an arm by placing a hand mark at the end of the arm. The first player to dispose of all of hit dominoes wins the game. The advance game is the same as the beginners, except using the number side of the dominoes.
Accessories:
  • FPT16017 - Purple plastic octogon-shaped octopus face with black and white heat-stamped eyes, molded eyebrows, and a molded smiling mouth and tongue. Marked Fisher-Price across the bottom in red and white.
  • 36 purple cardboard "octopus arm" dominoes. The dominoes have 2 oval-shaped colors on one side, and 2 dice-type dot numbers on the other side (numbers 1-6). Both sides may have a gloved hand opposed to a color or number on the dominoes. Though some cards may be the same on one side, they are not the same on the other side, thus meaning that the set has 36 different cards. Other cards than we have listed may exist:
