Sofia the First Magical Tea Time Game

Easter is a great time for families to come together and what better way to do this than with a board game?

Board games are a fantastic way to keep all members of the family happy, whilst igniting their competitive spirit. They are also a fun way for kids to polish numeracy and literacy skills while learning some wider lessons about winning and losing.

Here is a selection of some of the best children's games available this Easter, many of them brand new this year.

Sofia the First – Magical Tea Time Game

Disney Princess - Dazzling Princess Game

Disney Princess - Dazzling Princess Game

Dazzling Princess is a fantasy filled dress-up game of puzzle solving, pretending and imagination. Players pretend to be Princesses and race to earn sparkling gems for their tiaras, bracelets and rings to make their jewellery dazzling in time for the ball.

On a player’s turn they draw a card requiring them to do one of two things, either guess the princess from a clue or take on the role of a princess and make their opponents guess which one.

Disney Princess - Dazzling Princess Game

Gems are awarded for correct answers and are used to decorate the player’s jewellery. When checking answers, a special jewel is pressed against the back of the cards to magically reveal the princess in question, creating a nice visual touch. At the end of the game, the same special jewel is clicked into place at the centre of the winning player’s tiara!

Best for little princesses! The game is recommended for 2-4 players, aged from 4+ Price is £19.99.
