Holiday Gift Ideas: Wonder Forge Games

Disclaimer: I was given games by the Wonder Forge Company to create this post. All opinions are my own.

In my search for Holiday Gifts I am always on the lookout for products that recall memories from our trips to the Orlando Theme Parks, and Wonder Forge has some great games for the whole family!

What I really appreciate about Wonder Forge games is that they are extremely high quality and they really pay attention to every detail!

When you open the game boxes, you will notice that there is place for everything! If you are anything like me you try to keep your game pieces organized, and the good folks at Wonder Forge have created packages that have holders for cards and package dice in zip top bags. It makes clean up a breeze, because it is easy to see if you are missing anything.

Also the pieces, spinners, and dice are full of details are a great size that easy for little hands to manage.

Let’s take a peek at some of the games that I was sent to review!

Disney Pictopia: The Ultimate Picture Trivia Game

Wonder Forge Disney Pictopia

While I am sometimes wary of trivia games to play with Zoe, but Disney Pictopia is the perfect mix of questions for the whole family!

Disney Pictopia has 1,000 questions with pictures covering the the World of Disney from Disney Jr. and Disney XD to the Disney Parks to films that players use to place a wager based on their knowledge of those images.

We really enjoyed that there were individual and group questions!

Disney Pictopia: The Ultimate Picture Trivia is now added to our normal rotation for Friday Family Game Nights!

Frozen Surprise Slides

Wonder Forge Frozen Surprise Slides

Frozen Surprise Slides is a really fun take on the classic slides and ladder game that we all really had a blast playing.

The game play is cofortably familiar, but as you journey high into the Arendelle Mountains with some of your favorite friends things can take a twist as paths and your scenery can change with a flick of the spinner.

I love that Marshmallow, the troll’s secret glen, and skate past Wandering Oaken.

Our only issue was deciding who got to be Olaf!!!

Royal Pet Salon

Wonder Forge Royal Palace Pets Salon

Zoe’s absolute favorite games was the Disney Palace Pets Royal Pet Salon Game!

In this 3D Royal Pet Salon, you move your super cute pet from room to room looking for products that are hidden within the rooms that are fit for a Disney Princess.

I think that this game would be especially fun at a sleep over or playdate!

Disney Junior Super Stretchy

Wonder Forge Super Stretchy

 

I may have thrown my back out playing the Disney Junior Super Stretchy Game, but it was a blast.

Disney Junior characters from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins, and Jake and the Neverland Pirates encourage you the whole family to get moving.

Make sure that you set this up in an area where you have lots of space and that is not too slippery.

We were laughing so hard it was hard to make our next move, but I thought that was a good problem to have!

Dr. Suess Charades

Wonder Forge Dr Suess Charades

We play a lot of charades in our house, and Dr. Suess Charades is a fun ‘Suessian’ twist on this classic game!

I really enjoyed that the cards had both the words and illustrations making even the youngest player confident enough to join the fun!

While I was initially worried that Zoe would have a hard time with the Suess character, I was totally wrong as she was very in to the game!

Ultimate Spider-Man Trickshot Duel Action Game

Wonder Forge Ultimate Spider-Man Duel Trickshot

I didn’t want to leave out the boys, and Wonder Forge didn’t either because the Ultimate Spider-Man Trickshot Duel Action Game rocks!

Green Goblin hatches an evil plan to break Spider-Man’s arch-enemies out from behind bars on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. Face off in the game arena as Spidey or Green Goblin and fire discs to take out your opponent’s hero or villain pucks. Last one standing in the Helicarrier arena is the winner!

It is important to note that you do ‘shoot’ discs in this game, so we found that playing on the floor worked better than a table since we had to pick up pieces on a few occasions.

We really had a ton of fun playing all of these wonderful games from Wonder Forge, and I can’t wait until our next Friday Family Game Night to play them again!

Recent Reviews of Fleetwood Mac’s On With The Show Tour

“The principal emotion during the two and a half hour performance was the joy of having keyboardist, McVie back in this group . . . she brought high harmonies and several songs including, ‘Little Lies,’ ‘You Make Loving Fun’ and the closing ‘Songbird,’ back into the repertoire. Nicks hasn’t sounded this good since the early ’90’s. What a rhythm machine and what an articulate emotional guitarist Buckingham is.” ~ Minneapolis Star Tribune

“It’s still magical. Between Buckingham’s epic guitar solos, Mick Fleetwood’s massive drumming, John McVie’s strong bass work, Nicks’ patented spins to punctuate the lovely ‘Gypsy’ and Christine McVie’s lush vocals, Fleetwood Mac looked ready to take on what Buckingham has called the ‘next chapter.'” ~ Newsday

“Fleetwood Mac has the intricacy, elegance and underlying punch of its songs . . . ” ~ The New York Times

“With Christine’s songs back in the set, her calm, angular presence back on the stage, there was an undeniable feeling of rejuvenation. . . Fleetwood and John McVie on bass reminded concert-goers why the band is named for them. . . They still put a layer of muscle behind everything the band did. . . Buckingham was ferocious and tireless as lead guitar. This man is a vital musical presence – the soul of the band. Ditto for the vitality of Nicks, its cauldron-stirring spirit. . . Her showcase songs, ‘Landslide,’ ‘Gold Dust Woman,’ and especially ‘Silver Springs.’ were the night’s highlights.” ~ Chicago Tribune

“Drum solos can sometimes seem like an endurance test for a rock audience. It’s a rare joy to witness one wherein the drummer seems to experience as much giddy delight as Mick Fleetwood did. He whooped and howled, coaxing the crowd in call-and-response shouts while demonstrating his singular rhythmic sensibility.” 

~ Chicago Sun Times
