It is a fragrant summer evening, and the children went to bed a long time ago, but it is still light enough outside to play. Four small garden dwarves meet by a slide-elephant and a sand-box, where the toys that have been left out by the children are scattered around everywhere. The dwarves like the children’s slide, but they like even more the colorful toys that the children have left in the sand-box. That’s why, almost every evening, you can hear pushing and shoving and arguing in the playground, as the elves rush to the slide, where they share out noisily the toys left by the children.
The game teaches children to count, trains them to devise tactics and not to lose heart in meeting the first obstacles and be brave in reaching the goal.
