Thanksgiving is in a couple of days. You will have family and guest coming over for either lunch or dinner. After eating my family enjoys playing games. This year I have partnered with Wonder Forge for my Holiday Gift Guide. We were sent Stick Stack Board Game, The Lion Guard Boulder Burst Game, Finding Dory Bubble Science and Marvel I Can Do That! Hero Training Game.
What is Stick Stack?
This is a classic game of stick with a twist. The twist is the tower and the color tip sticks. Add sticks to the tower center using a steady hand. You need to match the colors to the center of the corresponding color area. Try to keep a steady hand – one unstable stick and you will make it come down. Each player scores 1 point for each stick they have. When anyone has 11 points or more, the game is over and the player with the lowest points wins. This game is for ages 8 and up and includes 36 sticks, one post stick, post tray and color coded center tray along with a bag for storage and instructions. This game can be played with 2 or more players and retails for $14.99.
#Review - I like this game. It is easy to set up and my children can play. Bonus for me as I do not have to buy batteries for this game. This game is good for my daughter as she works on her fine manipulation and it helps her identify her colors. My favorite part is 2 or more players can play. The more the merrier.
What is the Lion Guard Boulder Burst Game?
This game based on the Disney Junior show’s objective is to stop the pride lands from flooding. Bungas boulder dam can burst at any time. You add the water balls on top through the clouds. You pull a boulder from the bottom and stack it on top. Just do not be the player that makes the wall crumble. This game is for ages 4 and up and includes 28 boulders, 18 water balls 1 canyon, 1 rain cloud, 1 back wall, 1 pride lands platform and instructions. This game can be played by 2 to 4 players and retails for $14.99.
#Review – This Disney Junior show is a hit in my home. My daughter loves Kion and Kiara. This game is easy to set up. My daughter had fun building the boulder wall up especially dropping the water balls through the clouds. She loves breaking things down and building them up again. My son took turns with her throwing the balls down the clouds.
What is Marvel I Can Do That! Hero Training Game?
In this game you are training to be a super hero. You need to build up your skills to battle the villains like the Green Goblin. This game is for 2 to 4 players and includes 1 portal, 2 portal stands, 1 cosmic cube, 1 Green Goblin, 1 Green Goblin base, 1 Spider-Man’s Web, 1 Captain America’s shield, 1 Thor’s Hammer, 1 Captain Marvel’s Energy ball, 45 cards and instructions. This game retails for $16.99.
#Review - My son and husband love anything Marvel. This game is super easy to put together. It will kept my kids active. Each was leaping, jumping and just having fun. Bonus, as it keeps my kids and husband active. Yes, I said husband as he wanted to get in on the fun too.
What is Finding Dory Imagicademy Bubble Science?
This is a science kit that lets kids do science experiments with bubbles. Kids will learn about surface, tension, air pressure, diffusion and more. This kit comes with a 16 page lab book, 1 Dory bubble blower, 2 bubble wands, 1 four ounce bubble solution, 1 bubble tray, 1 string, 2 silly straws, and 1 bubble glove. . They have 7 science experiments you can do with your child. Adult supervision is recommended and should not be used by children under 36 months.
#Review – I like the simple step by step picture instructions. The picture can guide you through the experiments so you know you are doing it the right way. Note, if you use this product just make sure you place napkins underneath so it does not spill onto your surface.
