In this fantastic family connecting game, players race to build their pipeline from their starting tap to the opposite side of the board. The youngest player starts. In turn, players roll the die to choose a piece of pipe and then connect the chosen piece to the starting tap matching the colour of their pipes. 4 players have colourful plastic sets of plumbing, straights, angles, T joints and blockers. On each turn, players may choose to 1) roll the die and connect a piece of pipe, 2) remove a blocking piece and 3) remove one previously played piece of pipe. Once a pipe has been connected, a player's turn is over. It is not allowed to connect to another player's pipeline. The first player to connect to any of the four connectors on the finishing pipe wins. For 2 to 4 players and suitable for ages 4 and up.
Once upon a time there was someone who loved telling stories... well if you know that someone, then they'll be a winner at playing The Story Telling Game! Whether they tell tall, short, fairy or scary stories, this fast-paced game will be a best-seller for children aged six upwards who have a vivid imagination, a competitive streak and are quick thinking. The Story Telling Game is a great birthday and Christmas gift and it not only encourages creativity, but it will keep children entertained on rainy days and school holidays. Created for budding Jackanorys, The Story Telling Game sees each player start with five words on their cards and when the clock starts, the first players starts telling a story using one of their words. Then it's the turn of the next player who has to incorporate one of their words into the former player's story... and so it goes on with each player adding to the story with one of their words at a time until the buzzer declares that it's 'The End' for the player who's talking when the buzzer sounds. When this happens, the player has to pick up all the cards used by the other players and begin a new story, this time with the opening 'Twice upon a time'. The story doesn't have to win awards or be a work of literary genius - it can be about anything but has to include one of the words on each of their cards. The Smiley Trump card adds a twist to the game as it can be used as any word and if a player is caught out by the buzzer, the Smiley Trump means they get off scot-free and the next player has to collect all the cards.

This classic What's on my head? game is written especially for children to play and enjoy. What's Up will provide hours of hilarious fun for kids of all ages and also encourages them to interact and to use their imaginations. This parlour game has four categories of cards - people, sports, transport and animals. To get started, shuffle the chosen cards and place them face down in the centre. Each player puts a plastic card holder on their head. These are adjustable so they fit heads of different sizes. Then each player takes a card and without looking at it slots it into the plastic card holder on their head. Each card has an image on it, for example a lion, a fire engine or a balloon and then each player has to guess what's on their head by asking a series of searching questions, where the answer can only be yes or no. As well as being great fun, the game teaches children to consider what question they need to ask in order to help them guess the answer. The cards are graded for younger and older children and so can be played by children of different ages at the same time, making this a prefect party or family game. The player with the most cards correctly identified is the winner. This game is for 2 - 4 players.
