My 6 year old Mr Z is a huge fan of Pokemon, and his little brothers are following his lead too so we have a house full of Pokemon fans. They are always very excited to try out new Pokemon toys and they couldn’t wait to give the Battle Ready Pikachu and the Kalos Region Pokedex a try.
Santa’s Rooftop Scramble is a fun family board game from Ravensburger that’s perfect for the festive season. The game is recommended for age 5+ but we found that with parents joining in too, our whole family was able to play and enjoy the game even Mr R who is a couple of years under the recommended age. The aim of the game is to be the Santa that delivers all your presents fastest and there is plenty of action in the game to keep everyone entertained.
