I am not going to technically list Candyland and Chutes and Ladders because I think everyone probably knows about those. Also, I have an issue with the Candyland and Chutes and Ladders. Although I do think every kid should play them and I like to play them with my kids for nostalgia sake, unless you cheat by stacking the deck or stealthily moving the spinner needle (which I would NEVER do), the games have the potential to last way beyond even my 30-something year old attention span! You know all the getting sent back to the gingerbread man or down the big slide can make the game last, well, forever!
Anyway, moving on. Some of our very favorite little kid games:
- Wild Planet Hyper Dash
- ThinkFun Zingo
- Pretty Pretty Princess Sleeping Beauty
- Monopoly Junior Edition
- Cranium Balloon Lagoon
- Uno Card Game
- Blokus Classics Game
