Hi Ho Cherry O is a simple yet fun introduction to counting. Our adapted game board and
spinner make it accessible to special needs children. The game board is equipped with two
switch plates. The red switch is for picking the cherries off the tree and the blue switch is for
putting them back on when you land on the bird, dog or spilled bucket. The game board also has
two external jacks for your capability switches (not included) should your child require them.
The spinner is activated either by pressing the sides or by activating your capability switch (not
included). An external switch jack is provided so players can use their switch. Complete original
game is also included. This game is great for children who have not developed their finer fine
motor skills. Game Board Size: 10"W x 8½" x 7"H; Spinner Size: 8½” Diameter. Game Board
Requires 4 AA Batteries and Spinner Requires 2 AA Batteries

The Spinner requires two AA batteries. The battery compartment is located under the
base of the unit. Carefully turn the spinner over, and then remove the battery cover with
a small Philips screwdriver. Install new batteries, being careful to observe proper battery
polarity. Alkaline batteries are recommended because they last longer.
Turn the spinner’s ON/OFF switch to the ON position, when finished playing turn the
spinner OFF to prevent battery drainage. The spinner can be activated two ways. First by
pressing the sides or by activating your capability switch (not included). An external jack
is provided so players can use their switch. Plug your switch into the jack, making sure
there is no gap in the connection. Activating your switch or pressing on the sides of the
spinner will make the spinner turn, once you release your switch or the sides of the
spinner it will stop on one of the locations.
Troubleshooting Spinner:
Problem: The Spinner does not activate by pressing on the sides or your switch.
Action #1: Make sure that the connection between the spinner and your switch (if applicable)
are tight. There should be no gaps. This is a common error and an easy fix.
Action # 2 Make sure the batteries are in the battery compartment properly, and making good
contact. Replace if weak or dead.
Action 3: Try a different switch with the spinner (if applicable) to rule out this as the source of
the problem.
Action #4: Check that no debris or small objects are blocking or obstruction any of the buttons
on the bottom of the spinner, or the pointing arrow on top of the spinner.
Troubleshooting Cherry Tree Controller:
Problem: The Cherry Tree Controller does not activate by pressing on the plates or your
switch.
Action #1: Make sure that the connection between the controller and your switches (if
applicable) are tight. There should be no gaps. This is a common error and an easy fix.
The Cherry Tree controller requires 4 AA batteries. The battery compartment is located
on the back of the unit. Carefully turn the controller over, and then remove the battery
cover with a small Philips screwdriver. Install new batteries, being careful to observe
proper battery polarity. Alkaline batteries are recommended because they last longer.
Action # 2 Make sure the batteries are in the battery compartment properly, and making good
contact. Replace if weak or dead.
The controller can be used by pressing the red and blue switch plates or with any two
external capability switches (sold separately) via the jacks located on each side of the
plates. Turn the ON/OFF/RESET switch on the back of the unit to ON. The tree
should have all the cherries lit. Each time the red plate, or an external switch is pressed
one cherry on the tree will turn off and a cherry in the basket will light up. To put a
cherry back on the tree press the blue plate or activate your switch.
Action #4: Check that no debris or small objects are blocking or obstruction either of the two
switch plates.
When all the cherries are removed from the tree into the basket, both the basket and tree
with flash back and forth showing you have won the game. To RESET the controller
simply turn the ON/OFF/RESET switch to the OFF position, then switch it back to ON.
All the cherries will now be lit on the tree. You’re ready to start playing again. When you
are finished playing turn the unit OFF to prevent battery drainage.
You can add sound to your game, when the controller is first turned ON press the blue
and red plate at the same time, the unit will beep. Now each time a cherry is removed
from the tree and placed into the basket a sound will be heard to indicate this. If a cherry
is placed back on the tree a different sound will play. Please Note: All the cherries must
be in the tree to first activate this feature. To turn the sound feature OFF will require the
controller to be turned OFF. Whenever the controller is turned OFF it will default set to
no sound. To activate the sound again you will have to press the blue and red plates.
Action 3: Try a different switch with the controller (if applicable) to rule out this as the source
of the problem.
Care of Unit:
The Spinner and Cherry Tree Controller can be wiped clean with any household multi-purpose
cleaner and disinfectant.
Do not submerge the unit, as it will damage the contents and the electrical components.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they will scratch the surface of the unit
