    Let’s play… Kinetic Sand! (Review + Giveaway + Promo)

    Product Review You must have seen this video floating around the internet quite a lot last year. The Husband and I were so amazed with it but wondered if it will ever be available in Singapore. This has to be the coolest toy we have seen. Like EVER! You know what? IT IS AVAILABLE IN SINGAPORE NOW! Pardon my excitement but yeah, I’m excited!! The Kinetic Sand is available in Singapore through the good folks of Pupsik Studio who also specializes in awesome baby and parenting products. Pupsik Studio was very kind to provide us with the 1kg pack to review and we (namely Mummy and Daddy) couldn’t wait to rip…

    Let’s play… CitiBlocs plus a giveaway!

    Advertorial As you probably know by now, my dear husband aka The Blogfather scammed persuaded Pamela of My First Games to hand over the coloured blocks instead of the plain coloured ones to him as a token of appreciation for him sweating all over her nice clean floor while fixing up the table she so kindly bought from us some time last year. I won’t repeat the story, I’m not Channel 5. OOPS! You can read his account here. I’ve reviewed some of her other board games last year and they were Pengoloo, Spot it!, Soccer Dinosaurs! and my personal favourite Viva Topo! They are all fun but CitiBlocs is…

    Let’s play…Viva Topo!

    Based on looks alone, I will give award winning Viva Topo 2 big thumbs up . I love the wood pieces shaped like cheese wedges and mice with the little felt ears and tails. So cute can? The goal of the game is to gather as many pieces of cheese (they come in portions of 1, 2 , 3, 4 and 6 slices) you can grab without getting caught by the cat who will sneaking around and waiting to pounce on you. This game involves a little bit of strategy because the farther you go on the board, the bigger the cheese but each mouse is only allowed to collect 1 tasty piece…

    Let’s play… Soccer Dinosaurs!

    When Pam whipped out Soccer Dinosaurs from her bag, I thought to myself HA! Xan will surely like THIS! The dinosaurs look cute, rules are simple, game pace can be fast and most importantly, can use DIE! Not sure why the fascination with dice throwing but hey, whatever makes the kid happy right? Since we don’t have the habit of playing board games with the kid, he hasn’t grasp the concept of rules and waiting for turns. When we do play (board games, card games or whatever) I will admit we bend rules and alter game play just to make him happy or for the game to end very quickly so we can whisk…

    Let’s play… Spot it!

    Spot It! is a visual perception card game in which players race to find the one matching picture between one card and another. The pictures can be different sizes. The cards are round and feature an assortment of colorful images of items like insects, plants, symbols, and smiley faces. Every card is unique, and has only one picture in common with each card in the deck. The game is very portable and includes a deck of 55 cards in a round, tin container that is the same size as the cards.

    Let’s play… Pengoloo!

    My First Games Pte Ltd is an importer, distributor and retailer of premium quality Euro-style boardgames and educational products. Pamela from My First Games invited us to try out some of the games to see how our kids or ourselves respond to it. I’m a big fan of games so when she made the offer, I jumped at the chance lah! First game to review is Pengoloo. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_5XkUtKYz0&w=640&h=360] From the description on the box, Pengoloo is suitable for ages 4 & up but if your kid has mega concentration skills, the game is good for 3 year olds too. The game is pretty simple, roll the dice, find the matching…
