win 3 children's games - Bubbablue and me

Win 3 children’s games for the new year

We’re on a bit of a clear out mission…again.  I’ve found lots of children’s games and jigsaws that N’s never played with and isn’t bothered about.  So I’m holding the first competition of the year.

If you’ve got preschoolers and older, you might be interested in entering to win the 3 games I’m giving away.

win 3 children's games - Bubbablue and me

1. Orchard Toys – Shopping List

I love the Orchard Toys range – we’ve got a few games, and they’re great for introducing young children to taking turns, collecting specific items, and teaching patience, as well as being fun.  Shopping List is one of the games that always pops up as a favourite with parents and children,  with players needing to collect the right items for their shopping list.

2. Ravensburger Ultimate Spiderman memory

A matching game based on Spiderman.  Spiderman is one of the superhero films that N does like – I’m not sure it’s really suitable for his age, but he’s seen it a couple of times with us on holiday.

Matching games are great for memory, spatial awareness and colour or shape recognition, and perfect for all ages.

3. Memory Match

This is another matching game but with a difference, you’re matching the cards that go together rather than the same pictures.  There are simple cartoon figures, bright colours, perfect for young children (the box for this is a little bashed, but the game cards themselves are still new to be pushed out of their cards to play).

If you want to win all 3 of these games, just answer the question in the comments, and fill in the rafflecopter form.

  8. I used to love a game called pay day. I loved having the banker roll and opening the post at the end of each month.

  9. Frustration was my favourite but my son has it now and they’ve made it more complicated now with a genie and it’s no where near as good!

  10. I love playing Frustration! I used to love pressing the dice in the middle, listening to the pop and then trying to take everyone else’s coloured counters as I moved around the board!

  11. I always loved Game of Life, my favourite part was always the dice (strange what pleases you!!!)

  12. my dad and nanna taught me a lot of different card games, dominoes, chess and backgammon from a really young age.

    I really enjoyed strategy games as a child (I still do) so I loved chess and cribbage

  13. Battleships – I was so obsessed that everyone else in my family got too bored to play it, so I had to play both sides of the board myself!

  14. My favorite was Ludo! My great nan taught me and we played it every sunday after a roast! 😀

  18. I loved a game called Polo that we used to play in the playground. Not to be confused with the one involving horses of the same name. Haha.

    I don’t remember much about it. Except someone stood at the front with their back turned and they thought of a word and then the other players would guess a letter each and if that letter was in the word then they got to move a step forward and the winner was the person who reached the person at the front first.

  19. I loved Magic Robot. I could never work out as a child how he always managed to point to the right answer. 🙂

  23. It was Monopoly,I loved it and was really quite good at it,as I got older it was Scrabble,from 12 to 16 my dad and i played every night,two games sometimes three and I’m sure that’s why I’v e got such a good knowledge of words.If my dad put down a word I didn’t know he’d make me get the dictionary and look it up,that way he said it would sink in,and,he was right x

  25. My favourite board game was – and still is – snakes and ladders because all ages can enjoy it on an equal footing.

  57. I loved playing with the big yellow teapot and the family that lived in it. I think it was because it let me use my imagination

  58. I loved Frustration because I thought the dice popper was great – couldn’t lose the dice and it was a competitive game where the winner was random.
