I bought a batch of wooden cotton reels from a charity shop a few years ago and now buy them whenever I see them. I don't sew all that much but love the wonderful colours and labels. Today I used them in a game with Z and E. We took turns to pick a reel out of the box and grouped the colours together. Some were obvious, others more tricky - we debated whether a turquoise one was blue or green and another could have gone in the orange, red or pink pile. The Sylko reels have lovely names for Z and E to discover - Lemon, Sky Blue - and Filbert which they thought very funny. I didn't find a Violet though. After a while they got distracted and decided it was more fun to use the reels to make a long rainbow snake.
