This toddler board game is based around an egg theme, I would suggest it is best played on the two players mode to complete it WITH your child.  

The game uses a traditional board game layout with a spinner to take your turn.  Spin the egg in the middle and it points to a number of moves forward. Spin and land on the fox and miss your turn...

Each time you land on a flower (10 possible times) you need to complete an activity:
Balance the iPad flat and tilt it, including balancing the egg on the spoon and a maze, which is excellent to get used to this motion.
Fine motor skills are required for some of the games such as packing eggs into boxes.  
Timing is tested as your child is required to jump the egg truck over the bumps to stop the eggs from falling out.  
Intelligence and problem solving skills are is required to work out the egg machine puzzle and stacking the egg shelves.
Memory skills are enhanced as you remember what order the chickens make their clucks in order for them to lay their eggs.

Players are chicks, you personalise them by selecting headgear and record a sound for your player.  (My little 4 year old recorded both our voices and it was so cute to hear 'Mummy Mummy' sung  in her adorable voice every time it was my turn.)

This game takes about 30 minutes to play so ensure you, as the parent, have the time to dedicate to it and ensure your child is in the right frame of mind to focus on a longer time objective.

It is a game of luck of the spin, you cannot really control who wins except during the activities.
