Baa Baa Bubbles Game Review.

Baa Baa Bubbles Game review – game received for purposes of review.

If you’re looking for a family game to enjoy this Christmas look no further than Baa Baa Bubbles from Spinmaster Toys.

This simple to play game will have everyone laughing as you try to avoid being the player who makes the sheep sneeze and lose her wool!

Setting up the game was simple, we did find we need to add quite a coating of bubble mixture when we first set up the game. I’m not sure whether we covered the sheep enough or whether the bubble dabber wasn’t flowing as well as it could be – or perhaps both?

The aim of the game is to end up with the highest number of points. You get the points by successfully ‘feeding’ the sheep the number of times stated on the meadow cards. If the sheep sneezes on your turn to feed her, then you get no points! Here’s a short video of what happens when she sneezes and loses her wool (aka bubbles!).

At the end of play it’s simple to pack away, just remember to rinse of the bubble residue.

We absolutely love the game, it is perfect if you have younger members of the family. It is easy to understand, encourages counting and taking turns, but is also great fun!

Baa Baa! A new game from Orchard Toys!

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Orchard toys and so we were delighted to get the opportunity to review their new game Baa Baa!

Baa Baa is aimed at children 3+ and is for 2 to 4 players, it’s really straight forward to set up and both boys helped me to put the game ready to play! The board and figures are made of a good quality card so are robust for little hands, and the characters are adorable!

Baa Baa is a colour matching game, with simple rules which are easy for the younger members to follow. It’s a great introduction to board games and ideal for my boys to play together – (they’re two and half year old and four) with a little help from me! The game is can be played quite quickly which is helpful for the younger players – holding attention long enough that the game stays fun!

Not only are they learning to match colours, and take it in turns but they are also learning that this is a game of chance! Boo is very competitive and wasn’t over joyed that his little brother had beaten him at this game until I explained that it’s not about being best but about the luck of the draw, at which point he announced he wanted to play again!
