Indoor fun for all ages!

ToysMegan PeronaComment

Sometimes it's just too cold, wet and rainy to play outside. Mudpuddles and rainboots are cool, but at a certain point our feet want a chance to dry out. On days like that we love playing games. Board games, card games, dice games - you name, it we love it! Here are three of our favorite all ages games.

Tenzi, Ages 7+ $14.99

Tenzi is a lightning fast game for 4 people. Everyone gets ten dice. Someone says "GO." Then everyone rolls and rolls as fast as they can until someone gets all their dice on the same number. It's a fun, fast frenzy!

Dynamo Dominoes by Hape, Ages 3+ $39.99

Domino races should be a rite of passage in every childhood. Build a colorful trail of 100 wooden dominoes. Add bridges, bells, rails and tricks. Then tap one domino and watch them all fall down. There are some pretty epic videos of domino races online (like this one .) Think of this as a stepping stone to future domino engineering feats. Great for preschoolers! Perfect third birthday gift!

Twister, Ages 6+ $22.99

It's the game that ties you up in knots! The game from your childhood is still a favorite. Spin the spinner to find out where to place your hand or foot. Move fast to find the easiest spots. Last one "standing" wins! Hilarious, plus it kind of counts as exercise.
