Many games have been reinvented and have electronic versions to keep the next generation of gamers interested.

Preschool kids have an educational element thrown in so they can learn and have fun at the same time. The Topsy Turtle Game is a musical game for 3-year-olds and top toy Peppa Pig Tumble and Spin will be keeping little hands busy. Games that help develop problem-solving skills, colour recognition and promote hand and eye coordination are the best type of toy for toddlers

New games on the scene are Timmy Time Pop up Game, Fifi’s Stack a Cake Game and Roary the Racing Car Pitstop Panic. Pre-school jigsaw puzzles are also available featuring Fifi, Roary or Timmy Time.

Games for Four People

Hasbro has a new line up including one for Connect fans, the Connect 4 x 4 double grid challenge for four people. Pictureka has a new Flipper game and the Guesstures is a great fun charades game.

The action gadget that gets everyone going is Bop it that returns just in time for the Christmas celebrations with Shout It. Now kids and the grown-ups can Bop it, shout it, pull it and twist it to body bopping party mode music.

Monopoly City is another take on the successful game from Hasbro featuring 80 3D buildings and an electronic trading unit.

Lego Games

The construction toy Lego has entered the arena with the first ever range of Build, Play and Change board games. Titles include Ramses Pyramid, Creationary, Lava Dragon, Lunar Command, Magikus, Minotaurus, Monster 4, Pirate Code, Race 3000 and Robo Champ.

Previous year’s Dream Dozen toys for Christmas included Lego games Minotaurus as well as Monopoly City along with LOGO game, Rubiks 360, Jenga and 5 Gator Golf.

TV game shows draw in quite a crowd so it’s not surprising that board games based on popular TV shows sell so such as Game of Thrones, Deal or No Deal, Family Fortunes, Britain’s Got Talent, Golden Balls, and the Colour of Money.

Star Wars and Ben 10

Star Wars and Ben 10 fans can have fun with table pinball games that include lights, sounds and a digital match scoring display plus the Ben 10 Guessing game. Popular programmes like the X Factor have seen an increase in related musical products that include new music toys and games. The X Factor game replicates the show and takes you through the contestant’s journey to the final.

Memory Booster Games

One that’s a great memory booster for all the family is the best selling ten-second memory game from BrainBox. This innovative game contains information cards on a particular subject. After 10 seconds of studying a subject card the player is asked a question about it, if they answer correctly they get to keep the card. The player with the most cards wins the game. Simple and fun for ages four and upwards.
