Make It A Game Night With Marvel, Frozen and Planes: New Disney Games Are Here!

Disclosure: I received the following products to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% my own.

We haven’t had a good family game night in a while. We’ve had so much going on with J-bird in his senior year (and all his after school activities), Em running around like a busy toddler and Preemie arriving early. We used to play every Thursday night after dinner. This was our family and wind down time in the evening. Now that Em is old enough to take part, we needed some new games that would entertain her because surely the older games we normally played wouldn’t suffice.

Wonder Forge has an awesome line up of family friendly games everyone can play. Bringing your family closer one game at a time, and even teaching lots of life skills to carry with you even once the game is over. Put your adult worries behind and enjoy some one on one time with your little one or grab the entire family.

School is out and the kinds are screaming “I’m bored!”. There is no better time than now to entertain them with some fun games that also stimulate their brains with critical thinking and other essential skills that are crucial for growth. Just because school is over learning shouldn’t stop. For rainy days and game nights, Wonder Forge has games to keep your little ones busy all summer long.

Wonder Forge just launched three fantastic NEW games just in time for summer that your little kids (and big kids too) are sure to love! These interactive brain stimulating games will have them intrigued from the moment they lay eyes on gorgeous color artwork from Frozen, Planes, and Marvel.

These games are small, portable, and easy to play—promoting matching, creativity, and imaginative play with your child’s favorite characters. And at just $19.99 or below per game, they are a great value, offering hours of family fun.

Disney Princess Frozen Matching Game (Available on Amazon)

A fun game of picture-matching!

The Disney Frozen Matching Game has all the characters you love: Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, Sven, Marshmellow, and Hans! The game focuses on matching, memory skills, taking turns and playing together. Em really loved the movie so it was no surprise that she picked this game to play first.

This classic game of picture matching comes to life with its beautiful illustrations of the Frozen characters. The tile sizes are the perfect size for any preschooler to pick up effortlessly. With a minimum of just 1 player,  your tot is ready to begin the fun. If playing with 2 players, each player takes turns turning over two tiles at a time to try to find a match. If a match is found, the play continues and gets another turn. Once no match is found the next player gets a turn. The player with the most matching pairs wins the game!

The wonderful thing is you can use this game in multiple ways. We started with just 8 tiles, 4 sets of matches, to get the game started. As she began to understand how the game worked, we increased the number of sets we included in our game. For younger children I suggest starting with less tiles and adding more in as you go along. As we played I also had Em point out the different colors on each tile to help her in learning her colors.

The memory matching game promotes learning by helping your child learn to match pairs, builds memory skills and introduces turn taking and playing together. A great game for preschoolers, this game is recommended for ages 3+ and requires a minimum of 1 player, making it great for quiet play time.

Disney Planes Sky Race™ Game

High-flying, tricky-tossing fun! (Available on Amazon)

disney-sky-race-game-detail

The Planes Sky Race game is based on Disney’s recent Planes movie. I remember one of the first words Em learned was “plane”. Every time she sees one in the sky she points it out and says “plane”. Even now as she helps me feed Preemie, she loves to do the airplane motion to make her sister giggle.

With 4 soft foam gliders I don’t have to worry about the kids playing this game indoors. On the inside of the box each Plane is pictured with their Racing Bio so that you can learn about each plane. The 4 planes are easily recognized as favorites from the movie, Chupacabra, Dusty, Ishani and Ripslinger. A parent will be needed to help with the setup of the Stage Markers around the house, or even an older child. The children take turns tossing their planes towards the markers, trying to land their plane closest to each marker. Stage winners are rewarded by collecting Flight Control tiles along the way. After adding up and scoring each player’s points, the player with the most points is the winner.

J-bird of course decided to test out this game. Him and Papa waited for the younger ones to go to bed and turned our home into a plane raceway track. Since the age range is so wide on this one, as older, more advanced players they were able to incorporate the advanced racing tiles for more strategy play. Simply throwing a plane around wouldn’t be much fun without a challenge, watch out for the current flight conditions. There are 9 flight control tiles with various fun ways to toss your plane that make this game real fun. How well do you think you would do if say, your eyes were closed, or using your opposite hand or even tossing your plane upside down!

Em took her planes to the park so she could fly them around outside. Naturally she stirred up some attention as all the kids came running over to see the planes. Fortunately, we have taught her that sharing is important and she gladly let her new friends fly her planes. They all took turns seeing who could make their plane fly the furthest.

The Planes Sky Race game promotes imaginative play, physical dexterity and creativity as your children soar through their plane through the air. The kids will have a blast, laughing their way through the tossing challenges, through the flight path. The game is recommended for ages 4+ and requires a minimum of 2 players with enough planes for up to 4 children.

  • 4 Soft Foam Gliders
  • 8 Race Stage Markers
  • 8 Race Stage Bases
  • 9 Flight Control Tiles

Marvel Matching Game (Available on Amazon)

A fun game of picture-matching!

20140423-160416.jpg

The Marvel Matching Game has all the characters your children love and even some they will be happy to meet: Loki, Doctor Octopus, Electro, Captain Marvel, Black Cat, Venom, Hulk, Nova, Spider-Man, Power Man, Iron Fist and White Tiger. Friendly hero’s and mighty villain’s oh my! The game focuses on matching, memory skills, taking turns and playing together.

This superhero and villain’s twist on the classic game of picture matching will entice your little one to want to play with his favorite pals. The tiles fit right into the palm of your preschoolers hand for easy pick up and turn over. Children can keep themselves entertained because only 1 player is required to play. Having a play date? Perfect, because this game can be played with several children at a time. For group play, each player takes turns turning over two tiles at a time to try to find a match. If a match is found, the play continues and gets another turn. Once no match is found the next player gets a turn. The player with the most matching pairs wins the game!

The wonderful thing is you can use this game in multiple ways. We started with just 8 tiles, 4 sets of matches, to get the game started. As she began to understand how the game worked, we increased the number of sets we included in our game. For younger children I suggest starting with less tiles and adding more in as you go along. We also used the brightly colored tiles for practicing our color naming skills. I love finding new ways to explore learning in the most non traditional ways.

The memory matching game promotes learning by helping your child learn to match pairs, builds memory skills and introduces turn taking and playing together. A great game for preschoolers, this game is recommended for ages 3+ and requires a minimum of 1 player, making it great for quiet play time.

  • Hi! That’s great that your daughter shared her planes. I bet it was fun to fly them at the park! When my son was young, we didn’t have a regular game night but he and I played board and card games quite often. Now my grandson is just about old enough to start playing those types of games. Fun!! Thank-you for the review!
