What our experts think
The children loved playing the different games included in the set, and many wanted to keep playing so they could win! The instructions were generally easy for the children to understand, and although sometimes adult help was needed at first, they were also able to set up the games independently.
The games included are good for encouraging children to be competitive, and think strategically in order to win. We like that the games can be adapted too – for example, some of the older children changed the games to make them easier for younger children to play.
The different games are great for helping children develop their team working skills, and encourage active and social play. The children enjoyed being able to paint the toys too, and this allows them to be creative by making their own designs.
It would be even better if...
We would like to see a plastic mirror added to the set, for playing the ‘Rear-View Navigation’ game. The paintbrush included was also a bit thin, so a better paintbrush would be good as well.
