3 Family Fun Games For Preschool and Up - Video Reviews - FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

I have mentioned in the past that I love unplugging and spending time with my kids. Lately we have been having fun with puzzles and games. Kicking it old school and I hear some of my friends are also doing this. Kids and adults spend so much time online whether a computer, tablet or smartphone and never enough time together. Our time with our kids is going fast and in the future the phone may be the only communication I have with them so I have been doing things with them that they love.

Goliath Games has some fun games like the 3 listed above. I loved two of the 3 but was only able to try out 2 of them. Stick with me and I will explain.

Build or Boom is the first one up. This is a really fun game that had us laughing. It can be played by 2 players and the recommendation is 4 and up.

Game Contents:
  • 4 Boards
  • 4 Blocks
  • 4 Triangles
  • 4 Arches
  • 4 Cones
  • 4 I-Beams
  • 4 Barrels
  • 2 Builders
  • 30 Blueprint Cards
  • 2 Platforms
  • 2 Boomers
  • 2 Air Hoses
  • 1 Card Holder
  • Complete Instructions

You each get a platform, an air hose and a few sticks of dynamite. The first to build gets to blow up the other's construction.

Helps build STEM skills such as analytical thinking and shape recognition.
Unique game play that doesn’t need batteries!
High-quality components with bright, vibrant colors.

We had a blast (tee hee) blowing up each other's construction and found some of the builds very challenging or maybe that was just me.

To Purchase: Head over to Goliath to see where you can get it. I believe it is only at Barnes and Noble according to the website.

The next game was not a favorite of mine. It is called Giggle Wiggle
and I had a hard time even getting close to doing well. My daughter did much better than me. Maybe her smaller fingers? Hmmm?
Game Contents:
  • 28 Multi Colored Balls
  • 1 Giggle Wiggle Caterpillar
  • 1 Giggle Wiggle Base
  • 1 Sticker Sheet
  • Complete Instructions
  • Requires 3 AA batteries (not included)

Giggle Wiggle is a really cute game. That can be played by up to 4 players. When you open the box you will see that Wiggle Giggle the Caterpillar comes in 3 sections (really easy to put together). You also get stickers to put on for his eyes and multicolored bow ties. He also requires 3 AA batteries.

Each player picks a color marble and it is a race to the finish line as players place their hands in Wiggle Giggles hands as he sways and spins to the music.

Race to place your colored marbles from his bottom row of hands all the way to the top as he wiggles.

I found it stressful and annoying but my daughter who disliked it the first three times is really good at it and has asked to play two days in a row. I do because it is what she wants but you will see in my video, I am NOT good at this game at all.

To Purchase:

TARGET has it for $10 

The last game is called Who Tooted? This Game's A Gas
 By far the funniest game. Can be played by 3-4 players and is for ages 5 and UP. Dad has a gas problem or maybe the family does and they are blaming it on Dad. He happens to be the one on the board.

Game Contents:
  • 1 game board
  • 4 character playing pieces
  • 4 playing piece stands
  • 4 noses
  • 4 game board stabilizers
  • 1 molded figurine
  • 1 game base
  • 4 whoopee cushion controllers
  • Complete Instructions

To play is easy. Put 2 AAA batteries in. Put the board together, put the player pieces on the stands and get ready to hear some fart noises. Everyone gets a whoopee cushion that they hold in their hand. Pick your game piece, mom, dog, son or daughter and hold your cushion but keep it hidden from everyone else because the cushion will randomly select the farter. Once your light goes off on your cushion press the button which will illicit some fart noises. Now everyone has to point their 'noses" at the player they think farted. Even the farter because you wan't everyone to believe it was NOT you. If you can trick the other players you get to move that many spaces. The winner is the one who gets around the board the fastest. It is a funny game. We played quick but our batteries must have been used because we need to pick up some more. Here is our quick video.
