    It's time for the annual hedgehog race! All the animals of the Greater Rift Valley, big and small, have gathered to watch the hedgehogs take the field. But hedgehogs are very slow creatures. And the other animals are growing impatient! So one by one, the animals begin to push the hedgehogs along the forest floor, hoping to finish the race before tea time.

    In this preschool game, each player picks their favorite hedgehog and lines it up at the beginning of the jungle track track. A shuffled deck of animal cards, as well as the big and small animal disks, wait off to the side, cheering on the racers. On your turn, flip over the top animal card and find the matching animal disk. Then use that animal to push the hedgehogs further along the track, but only as far as the canopy! As more and more animals crowd in behind the little hedgehogs, they'll get shoved, pushed, and jostled further and further down the field until one unlikely hedgehog pops out the other end of the racetrack and is declared the winner. If it's your hedgehog, you win!

    Safari Sprint features all real world plants and animals that can be found in the Greater Rift Valley of Africa. The language free cards display each animal's range, size, and diet. Additional facts about the animals can be found inside the game's instruction sheet.
