Now, let's go back to the shelf and see what we can find for the preschoolers. This looks like it's going to be a Haba edition. All the games in this list are made by Haba. Their games are very creative and are of a superb quality. Should you ever lose a game piece, Haba will replace it.
Our favorite game [in the whole world] is Kikeriki. It allows you to play 4 different games. But we only play one. Because we like it so.
Dwarfs Mini game is a very simple game. And it is a lot of fun to "steal" pieces from your parents! It comes in a tiny tin box. Fits in your pocket or your child's pocket. So it is perfect for playing in the doctor's office or restaurant, or airplane. The game round takes between 2 and 10 minutes.
The Orchard (we have a tin version. The game pieces are tiny but we have not lost any in 2 years) is a cooperative game: all the players vs the raven. Who will get the fruits first?
We have other games that we play w/o rules:
Tottering Towers - the rules that came with the game are too complicated. So we play it like the Dwarfs game and then see who's tower is higher.
Lucky sock dip - we don't play as a race, we just use it as a matching activity.
Hedgehog mini game - the rules are a bit difficult to explain to a 4yo, so we're playing it by ourselves for now. It's fun, but some logic skills are required.
