Hours of Play Wonder Forge
I am so enjoying watching my kids grow up, their various interests and what piques their inquisitive minds. They are really into board games now which I am truly enjoying. Family game night is something that we have been enjoying with their new found fondness. Not all games however are created equal. I have noticed over the years how many board games are geared more towards girls. While they have boys marketed on the cover, the game ultimately is a “girls” game as my boys would say. This year my kids were wowed with the awesomeness of Wonder Forge.
Wonder Forge raises the bar of creative games for preschoolers to adults; the games engage children physically, socially, and creatively, celebrating the “can do” attitude in all children. In 2007, the founder and his creative types came together to develop these extraordinary, original play experiences for kids and families.
So my boys love board games but Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders are not so much their forte these days. At age 6 and 11 there is a bit of an age gap, but not enough that they don’t have similar interests. Even though Seth is barely over toddler age he is rather advanced with his game play, he is reading and enjoys challenges like checkers and chess. G is advanced as well, he’s a fan of backgammon and we are finding he enjoys our Trivial Pursuit, but he’s still too young for such a challenge.
Wonder Forge offers games that are mentally stimulating as well as fun!
We found the Star Wars Face Off Dice game was an excellent fit for G and Seth to play together….well and The Chad. Their sci-fi geek meter was going crazy when they saw this game. Using the force or the dark side this game of strategy with the face filled die of beloved Star Wars characters is action packed and a fast play. Rolling the dice and racking up their points they were boisterous and laughing the whole way through. Plus, we can take this game on the go with us. Everything packs into the head and we can take it anywhere which is awesome when we go camping.
Another gem was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Foot Clan Street Fight game for my Sethers. A traditional style board game where each player rolls the dice to move through the manhole covers to find the missing Turtles. Admittedly, my boys love pizza and ninja turtles so this was a win-win all around where in the game they could uncover the famed meals of the turtles, pizza. While this is somewhat boy geared, my daughter could definitely get in on the action with the multi-player option. Plus, she subjects them to her girl games rather often so this was a nice change of pace for my male dominated house to enjoy “boy stuff” as Seth called it.
I love that the Wonder Forge family of games has something for everyone. They follow the story line of the favorite movies and characters but do not limit their audience to just a certain group of children. The games incorporate fun for the whole family by embracing fun in all ages. The games start for ages as young as three on up. Whether you are looking to add to your family collection of board games or gift that child who loves to play and flex their imagination and strategy skills, the Wonder Forge family of games is sure to be a hit.

Make Old Shoes New With Shwings
I don’t know about you Mom’s, but my kids tear through shoes like a rabid animal on raw meat. I have a tendency to buy a couple pairs of shows because I know how fast they burn through shoes and I have some backups just in case. But my shoe purchasing style has not always been favored amongst my kids. Their style and my style for them definitely differ, which means that sometimes we are left with some brand new shoes that go untouched and unworn. Until we spiced them up to look new, with Shwings.
