Fun with Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom

22 Nov

Another one for the Christmas List, We are really not far from the big “C” there is truly no getting away from it!

This time I’m sharing mine and the helpers views on the Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom Lotto Game.

Oh yes, Like many other Pre-schoolers across the land, my Little Harley who is 2 next month is a “Massive” Ben and Holly fan, he loves it!

The other two? well… not really, at almost 9 Alice-Sara loves her Monsters high, Barbie and everything else girlie and the Little man spends his days investigating new Bus routes, building with Lego and discovering his other interests, however since doing the Little helpers both are more inclined to join me and the youngest member of the family in playing a game or two.

So, that’s what we did when we received the Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom Lotto game by Entertainment one ! The game is recommended for children aged 3+ Harley at almost two is a tad young, however as my partner in crime and with lots of prompts he was able to really get involved and had loads of fun doing so. The way I see it is, his engaging learning and taking it in bit by bit, he will get many years to play this on a more independent level.

Product Description

A fun Lotto memory game featuring Ben and Holly plus other favourite characters from the TV show. Holly has mixed up all the things in the little kingdom whilst practising her magic spells. Can you help her put them all back where they belong?

Our thoughts

The concept of the game is rather simple, yet extremely fun for the little ones. It’s a great way to help aid the development of your child’s memory skills as-well as that of their concentration and thinking style.

Memory games are also really great for children with autism or those with additional needs as I’ve demonstrated in past post when reviewing a range of games with Little man.

This isn’t your typical memory game! Basically each player selects a card and looks to see if it features any of the featured images on their lotto card, whoever fills their six game slots on their lotto card first is the winner.

Harley would select the card and pass it to me. If we had the featured item I would cheer and clap, this got him very excited causing him to cheer even when our opponents found one of their cards, bless him, he’ll soon get out of that, I’m sure🙂

The older two found it quite easy but really enjoyable especially my eldest with Aspergers. His been found head first in the toy box digging out the game a number of times! I even discovered him playing it alone last week, um… not to sure how that worked but I left him happily to it!

Have to give this one a five star*****

If not for the fantastic valule for money but the endless family fun it’s provided!

Would make an excellent gift for any little Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom fan

Plus it’s a Great addition to the toy box

Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom Lotto Game is aimed at Children 3 years plus, it’s for 2-4 players and is priced at an amazing £7.99 RRP (in my opinion a little price for a great game) It’s very well made and if looked after will last for many games over many years.
