Think Words

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review, Review - Board Games / Family Games

We are a family that love playing games, the children really enjoy trying something new so when our latest parcel arrived as part of the Ideal Games Group the children couldn’t wait to try them out. We received three games but the children decided quite quickly which one they wanted to try first. They picked ‘Think Words’ first because they had seen it on the television.

Its a Bugs Life with Learning Resources

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review, Review - Board Games / Family Games, Review - Toys, The Birds

Just recently the Bird household has been infested with bugs ….. and I am not talking about the ones that move and crawls around at high speed and scare the children. I am talking about the bugs from the educational section from Learning Resources. I have worked with Learning Resources for a number of years now, they are a company that are fairly local to me and make educational toys for children to use at home and at school. When they heard that Little Bird was diagnosed with ASD they instantly jumped to my rescue and provided me with a number of toys that would help him learn. We now keep in regular contact and I give them feedback of their fantastic products.

Buy It Right – Shopping Game from Learning Resources

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review, Review - Board Games / Family Games

Today it has rained none stop and the children have been stuck inside all day, so it was the perfect opportunity for the Bird family to try out a new game that we have been sent to review. When it first arrived the children wanted to play it straight away and they have continued to play it with me over the last few weeks and with the weather against us today we got this one out once again.

Classic Catch Phrase

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review, Review - Board Games / Family Games

I don’t know about you but my favourite game show on the television when I was younger used to be Catch Phrase, I would love staying up on a Sunday night watching Roy Walker hosting the game. I would sit with my parents shouting out the answers at the TV as we watched Mr Chips recreated different phrases that we use everyday in our lives.

Gooey Louie

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review, Review - Board Games / Family Games

We’re a family that love sitting down and playing games together, its a great way of spending time with the children and having quality time with them. We were lucky enough to be asked to be part of the Ideal Games Group from John Adams and a few weeks ago we received a parcel containing three new games. The children were really excited to try them out, they have been working their way through the box and today we bring to you Gooey Louie.
