Move along Monopoly, step aside snakes and ladders, here’s the next generation of games and puzzles for kids – and they’re gorgeous!
This Babyology Exclusive is a ripper! We can let you know that these stunning games and puzzles from unique Hungarian brand Marbushka are about to land at Hard To Find. But you’ll have to be quick – they’re bound to be snapped up as soon as stock enters the country.
Marbushka‘s aim is to make toys that are beautiful to look at, fun to play with and that will be cherished for generations. Mission accomplished. These games and puzzles are simply amazing. I’ll start with the one that’s captured my heart, particularly as the mum of two boys. The Marbushka Grand Prix game is a stunner. Gentleman racers speeding around trackless roads and deserted landscapes while taking on daring deeds to come away with the ultimate prize. Such a unique concept, captured in an utterly beautiful game. It’s priced at $55, and pricing for all of these items has postage included from Hard To Find. It’s recommended for children from six years old, and can be played by two to six players.
The Full Moon Circus game is equally ravishing. It captures the glamour and mystery of a circus, and throws in the intrigue of a jealous magician, just to throw a little interest into the mix. It’s $55 and aimed at kids from six years old.
The Friendship Jigsaw Puzzle is as pretty as a picture – albeit one that’s in forty-eight pieces. It’s based on an illustration by Beatrix Bohony, and is suitable for children from five years old. It costs $24.95. Hard To Find is also stocking another Marbushka jigsaw puzzle, the rather intriguingly named Awful Weekdays, and it’s also $24.95.
Finally, a good, old fashioned memory game is always a winner, especially one with a clever story behind it. The ‘Huh, What is in the Garage’ memory game centres around a purple monster, intent on leaving his house through the garage. It’s for kids from five years old and costs $39.95. If you’ve fallen in love with this brand, head to Hard To Find and secure your order. Marbushka will also be available in selected stores in Australia from this month.
