MiniMaster Football was recently showcased on ITV’s This Morning as one of the top toys to look out for in 2018 following their launch at Toy Fair, so of L and Husb were eager to try out. To be fair I’m not sure which one was more excited.

Wordsearch Junior Review & Competition
Wordsearch Junior is a great game from my favourite guys at Drumond Park. We’ve been lucky enough to get one to play with at home. I also have one to giveaway.
As it is aimed at ages 4+ and they have been very clever with the wordsearches themselves, meaning they are great for several different age groups.
Cars 3 Piston Cup Race Game Review & Competition

Noddy Toyland Detective App Review
I know, I know. I’ve gone from never reviewing apps to doing two in close succession. You see whilst I’m happy for L to use my phone or a tablet I would like to expand his horizons away from YouTube Kids. So the Noddy Toyland Detective App really appealed to me.
Win a kids game and puzzle bundle from Jumbo Games
I’m a bit of a closet puzzler, I’ll admit it. I love a good jigsaw puzzle and recently L has been getting more and more into it which is just lovely, so I was really happy to get a lovely delivery of puzzles and games from Jumbo.
Better yet they have also got a great bundle of kids games and puzzles for one of my lucky readers to win. Continue reading Win a kids game and puzzle bundle from Jumbo Games
Crazy Claw from Drumond Park
We have been playing with Crazy Claw from Drumond Park recently, so I thought I would give you our verdict. Mine and L’s differ slightly on this one.
I’m going to start by pointing out this game is aimed at ages 5 and up. L is only 3. So I was always completely aware there may be parts of the gameplay he didn’t quite get and that maybe he wouldn’t be able to do it all.
Family Games Night This Christmas
Table-top games sales set to soar this Christmas
Research reveals parents are planning to spend the festive season – and beyond – sitting down and enjoying some good old family fun with their children. The market for table-top games is booming as ‘quality time’ becomes more precious than ever before. This may not a surprise to many of you, as I know you love playing a board game with your kids as much as I do.
Pickin’ Chickens Review & Competition
Pickin’ Chickens is a fun new game from Drumond Park. We’ve been lucky enough to get it early and have been testing it out at home. I also have one to giveaway.
As it is aimed at ages 4+ it should have been too much for L, but like most Drumond Park games we’ve been able to adapt the rules so he can play it now. Although with the little chicken counters I have had to keep a beady eye on him.
L has adored this game. I have actually had to hide it. The idea is simple, spin the wheel and uncover a chicken coop. Keep spinning until you’ve collected all four colours of chicken. The added fun part is the fox that springs from the middle. If he catches you then you have to give one chicken back. He loves the fox! Continue reading Pickin’ Chickens Review & Competition
Barbecue Party Review & Competition
Barbecue Party from Drumond Park is the ideal game for the summer. We’ve been testing it out at home and have one to giveaway.
As it is aimed at ages 4+ the lovely folk at Drumond park were aware it was a little too grown up for L, but as my friends all have older kids it’s nice to have something in the house for them to play with.
Of course as soon as it arrived it was unpacked ready for the older ‘children’ to play with. By this I blatantly mean the husband and I, so we set it up one evening after L had gone to bed. Continue reading Barbecue Party Review & Competition
Fun and Giggles with Shout! Review & Competition
We love a good board game and when we went away for Easter we were really happy to take along SHOUT! a really fun game from Drumond Park.
This was perfect for us as it can be played with only two people but teams can pretty much get as large as you want them and let me tell you it is hilarious! It’s filled with quirky questions and funny picture puzzles that you have to make connections with and some of them will leave you feeling like you’ve gone crazy, whilst other’s are refreshingly easy.
