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.

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.
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

Disney’s Jake and the Never Land Pirates
– Who Shook Hook? Game
Licensed from Disney Junior’s popular
Jake and the Never Land Pirates TV show,
Who Shook Hook is brand new for 2013.

snoozes in his hammock, surrounded by
all the treasure he’s nabbed from Jake
and the Pirate crew.
Players move around
the board and when called upon must use
the sword, fishing pole, tweezers or
shovel to pluck a piece of treasure from

she goes, the wrong move could unbalance
the hammock and send Hook and the rest
of the loot tumbling into the water.

provides just the right amount of
complexity for 4 year-olds to enjoy with
careful hand-eye co-ordination skills
needed to succeed and win the game.
Best for young pirates! The game is
recommended for 2-4 players, aged from
4+ Price is £19.99.
