Good family game

I'm looking for a good family game that we can all play together (children aged 3 and nearly 6) without anyone getting bored... have looked at Wobbally but there are some pretty naff reviews on Amazon and am also considering Junior Brainbox or Qwirkle (both of which may not suit the little one...). Does anyone have any experience of any of these - other ideas...

Many thanks - all tips very gratefully received.

There is a great game with pigs, pig pens and snorting - in fact, I think it might be called "snorter". I'll see if I can find it...

I bought this for friends with small children and they absolutely loved it!

Thanks for the recommendation - I will look around for one online.

Tumbling monkeys

Pop up pirate

Tell me quiz (might be too old for 3 yr old)


All four are stalwart Sunday afternoon pastimes in our house.

Thanks - I've ordered Pop Up Pirate - looks fab and I don't think they've played it anywhere before... also like the look of Tumblin Monkeys for next time we take a load of stuff to the second hand shop!

Thanks again

Flipping penguins is great fun

Frustration is simple and fun, helps the little ones to count too!

tumbling monkeys is fab.
ds (5) loves Uno, but dd (3) doesn't quite get it yet...

Gulo Gulo is nice - bought it for a friends not quite 3 y/o and he could manage fine with a little strategic advice. A 6 y/o would almost certainly beat you hollow

Pop To The Shops. We have to modify the rules for very LOs, but they all dig it.
