I’m a big advocate of family game night and in general of playing board/card games with children. There are so many lessons that come from game play such as handling both success and losing. It is also a great time to teach about rules, taking turns, and other social skills.
It’s important to choose simple games with toddlers, think as simple as you can get. For this reason, I like the Rix and Marina brand board games.
Charlie and Lola is an award winning book series written by Laren Child. The series is about a little girl named Lola and her big brother, Charlie. The books have been adapted for television and air on Playhouse Disney.
Lola’s pink milk fun is cute and is appropriate as a first game for little ones. The little sistr on the show adores pink milk. To play the game, you have to collect three pink milk cards and then race to the center of the board, while avoiding tigers who also want the pink milk. The tokens are stand up cardboard of the main characters Charlie, Lola, Lotta, or Marv. I liked the game because it is very, very simple. It is just basically moving your token, getting three cards, and getting to the center. It’s exactly the type of first board game you are looking for your little one. Of course, you’ll have to help your little one move around the board unless they’ve mastered counting. It is for ages 3 and up. The game comes with a game board, die, 4 game pieces with stands, and instructions. It retails for $9.99.
