NEW from Drumond Park this Autumn comes the hilarious Shark Bite table-top game (age 4+, rrp £24.99, for 2-4 players). The big question is… can you save your catch before that big old shark snaps his jaws closed? The game play of this hugely entertaining game of youthful dexterity is fun and easy – and it’s a great way for little ones to build on those all-important fine motor skills and learn turn-taking, too.
Get set for squeals and giggles of sheer delight as little ones give full vent to their fascination with all things poo… Because the simple idea behind this game revolves around WHETHER GASSY THE COW WILL MOOO – OR POOO! Tee hee… and she looks so innocent, too.
I have a Cars obsessed little boy at home and since the very second he started seeing the trailers for Cars 3 on TV he has been desperate to go and see it. We’ve been able to put it off for a little bit with the new Piston Cup Race Game from Jumbo.
L and I have been playing with a new app based on the popular Dinosaur Train TV Series from the Jim Henson company, Dinosaur Train: Paint and Match by Kuato Studios.
This is an educational app with two game options aimed at children aged 5 and under, so perfect for L who is 3 years old. You can set up how long they are allowed to play for in the app settings before it will stop and won’t start again for an hour. Continue reading Dinosaur Train: Paint & Match App Review→
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.
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.
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 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 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.
