Times have changed so much since the older kids were little and there are so many more games to play with our children these days and then when you through technology in to the equation too, you realise that its a different kind of childhood for the kids growing up today. Sometimes I worry that Tilly misses out on the fun stuff that we all used to do as children. When we were asked to try out some Go Fish / Happy family cards, I thought it would be a good chance to get some family time in and to teach Tilly some cards.
The cards are designed especially with your family name on them, We chose 'HALL' as it was my maiden name, and it is important to keep your maiden name alive in the family. The cards come from www.goforitgames.co.uk and a a bargain at £6.99. You get a full pack of cards and they have scenario's such as Miss Hall at the barbeque or Master Hall at Christmas. You get the full instructions for Happy Families and Go Fish as well as 4 blank cards that your children can draw on or you could stick pictures of your family on, this would make it so much more personalised to your family.
The cards come with a sheet of gift wrap with Hall written all over it, just big enough to cover your box, to make the gift more exciting when giving it to the recipient. You get free delivery on the cards too, so the price you see is the whole price that you will pay when you get to the check out.
The cards are ideal for wet afternoons and journeys that you're about to take with your children. You can buy them here and you will also find other games available to buy.
We did enjoy playing with these cards because it is a traditional game bought right up to date to keep the attention of the kids these days. We are a family that goes to amusement parks and to have it printed on cards is funny. They are a really good price and are perfect for pocket money toys, they also make great stocking fillers and will definitely be on the list for some Christmas presents this year. They make perfect gifts for school friends parties too. What are you waiting for?
