  • Hi Sam,

    Sorry to hear you're having issues. It's running from this page http://www.onestopenglish.com/children/games-and-topics/top-trumps/top-trumps-baby-animals/top-trumps-for-iwb/

    It may be Flash-related. Have you checked that you have Flash installed and also that the browser you're using has 'enabled' Flash?

  • Morning Tinker,

    Thanks for the feedback. There are indeed plans for some more Top Trumps packs in the pipeline for 2017 and these will be aimed at 7-11 year-olds and teens. Glad that you've found the Baby Animals set so useful with your after-school club - both educational and cute!

    Best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • Morning!
    Just wondering if there are going to be other packs of Top Trumps in addition to the Baby Animals one. They're a fantastic and versatile resource for an after school club where I have children aged 4 - 11 all in one group. Not easy!

  • My 10 year old student LOVES her baby animals top trumps, in all forms of the game. I highly recommend this for capturing the attention of kids and teaching them some fun vocab.
    (Unfortunately one of the words I have had to teach is "cheat!", but you can't win them all... well, not unless you bend the rules!)

  • Great for motivation; fantastic content. Am I parochial in wishing that the map of my beloved New Zealand in Lesson 3 was more accurate? the 2011 Rugby World Cup final was not played in mid-ocean but in Auckland, our largest city.
