were sent two of these lovely little Ravensburger games to review, Moshi
Monsters and Mike the Knight. Each box
came with 48 high quality cards featuring characters from each show. Aimed at children 3-5 years, my two boys
were perfectly matched for playing these games.
was very simple to get started you just place out the cards and then try and
find a matching pair. It is great for
the boys to practice their recall skills; something that is also well suited to
the forgetful adult in the house, AKA me!
Perhaps if I play often enough I might not be so ditzy…
Being housed in such a small box, it is a handy portable
game for holidays; we took them with us to London as they did not take up much
room in our luggage. Then if you have a
moment of chaos and need some calm quieter behaviour you can whip out these
games and happily spend some time playing as a family.
just in case you have never played a variant of this classic game, it even
helpfully comes with instructions. The
game cards are strong, even difficult for me as an adult to bend, so the kind
of quality you need for children who can be slightly rough in play (my two can
be semi feral when it suits them, do not let those cute faces deceive you!).
are also Hello Kitty, Minnie Mouse and Disney Princess designs, so the girls of
your families are well catered for too.
You can even use less of the playing cards if you want to make the game
easier for those a little younger, so very versatile and I have a feeling this
game is one they will be playing for a long time!
