The Gruffalo Mini Hide and Seek Game

Featuring the characters from one of their favourite books, I had a feeling the game would be popular too.  It’s a useful game to help with recall skills, as you need to remember the location of the animal tokens.  Youngest was skilled at that; my brain was not quite so sharp!

The game box is a handy size to pop into a bag for holidays and days out, if you need something small to entertain the kids!  The board folds out so its not as teeny as it first appears.

It was a simple game to set up; youngest enjoyed helping being involved in that part too, placing the animal tokens appropriately and shuffling the cards (in a manner!) for me.  The game was just the right length of time for the attention span of 3+ children. 

Playing games with your children is so important; its helps teach them turn taking and develop concentration skills.  Eldest had an excellent report at his last parents evening, in part I think its down to the number of board games we have played as a family since he was very young.

You can also use the game to introduce the types of animals and talk about them in more depth.  Stockists of the game include: Tesco, WH Smith and Amazon.  With an RRP of £8.99 it would make a lovely gift for young children.
