Bellz

  

The Bellz magnet game is deceptively simple and yet can be really challenging at the same time. Just open the travel pouch, which becomes the game board, and you’re ready to play! Inside there are 40 custom bells in 4 colors and 3 different sizes.

The Goal: Players use the magnet wand to pick up bells of only one color. Make a string off the end of the magnet wand, or create a cluster — just don’t pick up bells of any other color or the turn is over. Each player must decide how far to push their luck on every turn. The first player to collect all 10 bells of one color wins!

The magnet wand can be used two ways:
Use the small end for precision grabs, or try the larger, more powerful end to make really long chains. You choose which end to use each turn. This is a great new family game for ages 6+.

Evolution: The Dynamic Game of Survival

The landscape of games at Turtle Pond Toys has been a pretty exciting one and it’s definitely been getting some attention. Board games in general have been really dynamic with modern, and really appealing, premises. Evolution is one I picked up recently…looks fantastic! Evolution is in the Family Game Category and recommended for ages 8+.

The rules are rather simple but a surprising amount of variety is packed in. In a dynamic ecosystem where predators lurk and food is scarce, players will adapt their species. Traits like Horns and Hard Shells will protect your specific species from Carnivores while, for example, a Long Neck aids in getting to food other species can’t reach. The game happens through a series of drawing and playing cards.

Every game is different with more then 4000 different ways to evolve your species. Some will play to destroy other species while others will quietly mind their own business and aim for survival. The game supports both styles of play by offering a path to victory for each. The eco-system in which you are all adapting is determined by the styles of play in the game.

Play time is approximately 1 hour with a player base of 2-6 people and optimal with 4-5.

Cloud B Twilight Buddies

Cloud B’s Twilight Buddies are a nice addition to a little one’s bedroom. They add a magical quality to bedtime – kid’s love them! Light them up in one of three colours and project a starry night sky across ceilings and walls. Best of all, the constellations are accurate so older kids can learn about them. You’ll see the moon and other constellations in different sizes depending on how close or far away you set them from the ceiling or wall. They can ease nighttime fears but they’re also a relaxing image to experience when getting cozy.

There are now other buddies to choose from including Twilight Fox, Sheep, and Dragon. Soothing Sounds buddies include the Nighty Nighty Owl Smart Sensor that activates when your child stirs or wakes up, to help ease your tot back into sleep. The Owl plays white noise including Mother’s Heartbeat, Ocean Surf, Spring Showers, and Whale Songs. Tranquil Starfish plays the same selection of soothing sounds and features a unique textured shell that emits an underwater light effect.

Catan: Junior

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catan: Junior is an "adventure for fledgling swashbucklers". Explore the Seas Catan: Junior presents a modified playing style of the classic Catan game giving younger players the opportunity to experience the world of Catan. Designed for players as young as 5, it's a perfect introduction to the Catan series of games for kids and families.


Catan: Junior takes place on a ring of islands where 2 to 4 players build hideouts, and the mysterious Spooky Island, where the Ghost Captain lives. Each island generates a specific resource: molasses, goats, wood, wood, or swords. Players can also acquire gold. Each player begins with two pirate hideouts, then builds ships in order to expand their network. The more hideouts you build, the more resources you can receive. You use your resources to build ships, hideouts or get help from Coco the Parrot. Just watch out for the dreaded Ghost Captain. Be the first player to control seven pirate hideouts and you win the game.
