The Magic Tooth Fairy Game from Drumond Park ~ Review and Giveaway


We were sent The Magic Tooth Fairy Game to review a little while ago and it's become an instant hit. It has magic and excitement and my little boys love it. Neither of them have lost any baby teeth yet - but they'll certainly know what to do when it happens!


You each have a mouth with 4 'removable' teeth and a little character playing piece. Your playing piece travels around the board using a spinner to decide how many squares you move each turn, and you follow the instructions on the squares that you land on. First you need to get a wobbly tooth, then you need to see if it is ready to come out or not using the Fairy Dice. If it is then you pop it in your backpack and wait until you land on 'go to bed'.



When you go to bed you have to spin the spinner again to see if you remembered to put the tooth under your pillow. If you did then that's exactly what you do! Put the tooth under your pillow and the tooth fairy visits while you sleep, replacing your tooth with a shiny gold coin.


The game has a fantastic little bed at it's centre, which is where the magic occurs. My boys think this is brilliant. They can't work out why the tooth turns into a coin, even though they've inspected the bed at length.



The game is quick and fun. You need to lose all 4 teeth and replace them with coins to win, but everyone feels like a winner, because everyone has gold coins and the use of 3D objects and the magic bed make it really attractive to children.

 

It's excellent for teaching very young children about turn taking, counting and reading numbers to 4, and recognising the 3 different instructions written on the squares on the board.


The Magic Tooth Fairy Game is by Drumond Park and has a recommended retail price of £19.99. It is suitable for 2-4 players and recommended for children aged 5+, although my 3 3/4 year old is very capable of joining in - he does sometimes stop play so that he can inspect the bed again though!

Drumond Park kindly gave away a copy of the game to one of my readers. The competition closed at midnight on Saturday 14th December 2013
