The Big Idea

It’s a number and counting bone-anza! This preschool counting bone-anza is a summer day trip to a dog beach! Shelby buried bones in the sand and needs your help collecting them. Help her dig up the most bones and you win! Kids take turns using the adorable Shelby Squeezer to fill their dog bowl with bones. Sounds simple, but be careful—spin a sneaky seagull, and you’ll lose some bones or get sidetracked chewing a flip flop and miss your turn!

Shh…They’re Learning!
  • Visual lesson in number recognition, counting, and beginning adding and subtracting
  • Exercise fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination
Cut to the Chase
  • Board game designed to teach young children counting and simple math skills
  • Simple to play and understand
  • Quick, fun game that can be played continuously in a short time
  • Easy setup and cleanup


Lekotek, special needs expert advice:

Shelby’s Snack Shack helps kids dig math! Buried in game play are pre-math skills like counting along with fine motor skills when using the Shelby Squeezer to collect the bones. The game is fetching as it begs to be repeated again—repetition is the key to learning for kids and canines both.

      This was a great fun game but simple to play and understand. It is great that this is a game my 8 year old can play with my 3 year old niece and they can both have fun.

        Comments about Shelby's Snack Shack Game™:

        The instructions were easy to follow. The game is about a dog named Shelby and she has buried bones on the beach and needs your help in collecting them. Whoever collects the most bones wins. To play, you spin the first spinner to see if you get to pick up bones, lose your turn because you were sidetracked by chewing on a flip flop, lose bones because of the sneaky seagull, or get to steal someone else's bones! Once you know which action you will be doing, you then spin the spinner to see how many bones you get to get (or lose). You then use the Shelby squeezer to pick the bones up and put in your bowl.

        The game is so cute to play and it's a great educational game too! Your child can practice counting and early number skills. Also, squeezing the Shelby squeezer helps build their fine motor skills. We absolutely loved it and my son requests to play it daily and neither of us are bored of it yet, it's really cute and a lot of fun! It's a great family board game.

        **Disclosure: I received the game free of charge in order to do an honest review. My thoughts are 100% my own.**

            I received this to review and I just LOVE it! It's a similar game set up as the Sneaky Snacky Squirrel which is my all-time fav preschool game. It's an adorable game, great for honing on fine motor skills, strengthens counting skills, and great for following directions. No reading is required which makes it great for your youngest players.

              Comments about Shelby's Snack Shack Game™:

              I received this game as a gift for my 5 year old daughter who is getting ready for Kindergarten. It's always fun to play "easy" games with her to practice taking turns, following rules, etc. What I loved about this is that the awesome artwork, pug squeezer, and bones were enough to engage my almost 8 year old son, and it's been great to see them play together! I love that the game is easy enough for my daughter, yet "fun" enough for my son! They've learned more than the simple counting skills--- they're learning to compromise, follow rules, and have fun-- all with a little healthy competition and the CUTE pug-themed squeezers! We LOVE this game! We now have a go-to birthday gift to buy!

                This game is a big hit with my 5 year old girls. The game can be played in about 15 minutes which is perfect for their attention span. It has simple directions so they knew how to play after just one game. It's great to have a game they can play together with or without me. We expanded on the math aspect and they did addition every time they added bones to their bowl (ex. I had 4 bones and added 3. Now how many do I have?). It's a good game for younger children to learn basic counting and number recognition. I highly recommend it!

                  My son and I had a fun time with this game. It kept his attention but then he wanted to work with higher numbers so instead of 5 we would say 10. The game lasted about 15 minutes which was perfect for my son who can only sit still for about that long. Might be good for younger kids who are learning to count as well.

                    This game is fun, easy to understand, and keeps my son entertained for hours. He is almost three and the rules are easy to understand but it also challanges him to think for himself, count, and take turns. It's a huge hit!

                      I have played this game quite a few times now with my 4 and 6 years olds and they both love it! It is so nice to find a game that is both educational (teaches counting, number identification, fine motor skills, & sportsmanship) and fun. It takes about 10-15 minutes to play, which is perfect for this age group. My girls love pretending they are dogs collecting their bones. What's great is that they are learning at the same time. Would highly recommend this game for any preschooler(and even kindergartener).

                        My 3.5 year old daughter loves this game. We just got it yesterday and have played it at least 6 times already. She loves the spinners and counting out the bones. The game play is easy enough that she picked it up right away and it keeps her interest for the 10-15 minutes that it takes to play. And the artwork is cute too!
