Games Suggestions

Simon Game by Hasbro is an ever popular choice. Kids and adults alike love this game.

Follow the lights and sounds, see how good your memory is.  Are your hands as fast as your eyes? This is, without doubt, a great development toy for 8 year olds.

This game does require 3 of the  1.5V “AA” alkaline batteries which are available to order here. The game is portable so you can take it away on vacation or on a trip. It’s also fun to play solo and to challenge family and friends.

Simon Micro Series game just as fast-paced, but on a smaller scale. We don’t think that the fun isn’t reduced though, just the unit size.
