One of the things that I can remember about Christmas from my childhood was the hours we would spend playing games. Each year we would receive a new family game for us to enjoy together, and this would be played alongside some of the classics.
My love of board games has been passed down to Roo and Tigger who can often be found playing a game or two in the play room (unless one loses and they fall out – ahhh family life). This Christmas we are once again looking to add to the family games collection and I wanted to share with you some of the fab TOMY family games to own this Christmas…
Greedy Granny Game
This is one that we have seen advertised on the TV and looks so much fun. With the aim of the game to take the biscuits of Granny’s tray without waking her. But if you do wake her up, you better watch out!
Available from Amazon priced at £11.99 it is sure to make you all laugh
An absolute classic and one that I can remember from my childhood. Race the clock to get the screwball marble through the various twists, turns, and challenges of the screwball scramble maze.
Available from Amazon priced at £15.99 it is a classic game that never gets old
Star Wars Pop Up Game
I’m sure I’m not the only one who can remember Pop-Up Pirate from their youth. Well, the classic game has had a little Star Wars twist… making it a Pop-Up Darth Vader! Take it in turns to push lightsabers into the side of the barrel, but be careful one he might just go pop!
Available from Smyths Toys priced at £14.99, it is a modern twist on a classic game
There is a hungry croc about and he is after some lunch. With each player taking it in turns to control the croc, it’s the quickest hands first to save frogs from the lily pad and prevent them being eaten for lunch.
Available from Amazon priced at £15.99 it is a fast paced fun game for all the family
Select a fly colour and then it’s all about concentration, skill, and determination to get all 10 of your flies into the spinning mouth before you can declare yourself the winner. Are you up to the challenge?
Available from Amazon priced at £15.99 for a fun, yet skillful family game
