DS has asked for a game but I have no clue what would suit him best?

His favourite games we already have are pop up pirate, operation, kids monopoly, lotto/ pairs and snakes and ladders.

Any suggestions much appreciated!

Frustration and kerplunk are firm favorites here with DD who is 4

Pretty much anything made by orchard!
Shopping list, tummy ache, slug in a jug, dotty dinosaurs plus there's lots of new ones out. They're fab

It's more of an American thing, but DS loved Candy Land when he was that age. Amazon, etc usually sell it.

Another vote for Tummy Ache. Also Piranha Panic.

Candy Land doens't count as a game! ;)

Headbands. Brilliant game for little ones and not too painful for the grown ups to play. As they get a little older, pass the bomb, is another good one.

My 4 & 5 year old love junior monopoly.
They also like draughts, hungry hippos, kerplunk and frustration
