Reviews — 16 December 2011

With only 8 days to go before Christmas it’s time I started putting presents under the tree – but what, I hear you ask, will they be? Today’s gift is a great toy for Primary school-age kids, it’s easy to play and something that parents can join in with too…

The snow is falling today so we could all do with something to warm us up. This cracker of a game will get your kids and all the family moving around, wake up a snoozing Grandpa and put the non-slip rug to the test. It’s fun, it’s simple but boy is it it fun…


Ta da! Under the tree today is Hot Potato the musical potato-passing game. Suitable for 5-years + you start the music and pass the potato from one person to the next. The person left holding the potato when the music stops has to take a card. If you end up with three cards you’re out. Simples.

Warning: All the darting around can get a bit hectic so clear the floor of novelty slippers and make sure the Lladro is put up on a high shelf!

Great for burning off those Mince Pies and perfect for working up a thirst. Egg nog anyone?…

Check in tomorrow to find out what else is under my tree…
