Bored? Games!

So what was in that delivery we mentioned yesterday on Facebook? You had a few good guesses, but that delivery was full of games and puzzles, plus some sweet lunchboxes. We always strive to add products that complement our current selection and fit in with the vibe we’ve got here in the shop.

We’ve selected games that are intriguing enough to pick up, easy to learn and impossible to put down. We wanted games that the whole family can enjoy, don’t take hours to play, and that went well with our selection of books and music.

So grab a new game, put on a record and game on!

As a little pig, your greatest desire is to build a strong and beautiful house where you can spend your long winter evenings.

The Three Little Pigs is a fun and easy “push your luck” dice game for the entire family. On your turn, try to get the best combination of doors, windows, or roofs to add to your lovely home! And if you accidentally bring the wolf out of the woods, take a deep breath and try to blow down another player’s houses by blowing on the spinner!
