Toys and Games Gifts
Toys and games are one of the most popular gifts at the holidays, but they make great gifts year round. But, the best are unique and fun-filled. They will be a hit for the one receiving and the one giving!
Tenzi – Either for 2-4 players, the whole family as a party game. Action packed game where someone yells “Go” and all players roll their dice again and again until someone gets all their dice on the same number. The winner yells “Tenzi” and the game starts over. Named the 2012 Toy of the Year by ASTRA (American Toy Retailing Association) and 2013 Game of the Year by Learning. Buy one Tenzi pack for about $14 from Amazon. Get more info from their website.
WordAround – Small enough for a stocking stuffer, big enough for a group to play. Figure out where the word starts and read it to the other players. The first one to do so is the winner. Sounds easy? It’s tricky and lots of fun. Good Housekeeping calls it a Best Family Board Game of 2013, Redbook touts it as an Under $50 Gift They’ll Love and Amazon has it on its Best Gifts for Kids list. $12.99, ages 10 and up. Find it on Amazon for about $13.
