Sometimes we need a toy to be chunky, huge and makes a stunning centrepiece in our kids’ playroom. Sometimes, we want them small, compact, easy to bring around to keep the kids entertained screen-free while waiting in a cafe or clinic. This Fishing Game Set in Tin by Kaper Kidz fits right into the latter category, and is the perfect toy to be thrown into any parent’s bag for a quick on-the-road game.
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Travel-Friendly: the 2 magnetic fishing rods, 1 felt fishing pond and 10 magnetic wooden pieces fit right into a tiny cylindrical tin. The size is small enough to be kept in most handbags and easy travel bag packs. This is a great game to be brought around when running errands or travelling with kids.
(2) Lovely Pieces: the 8 colourful sea creatures, a red boot and a treasure chest are made of wood. They are light weight, vibrant in colour, and really cute to look at. We can introduce some of the common types of sea creatures to young kids: shark, turtle, seahorse, octopus, crab, starfish, seashell and a yellow fish.
(3) Boot + Treasure Chest: I love the idea of having a cheeky boot and a treasure chest amidst the sea creatures. There are always loads of giggling when someone caught the red boot, and a lot of excitement when someone got a treasure chest.
(4) Two Fishing Rods: I also love that there are two fishing rods. The kids can play this alone or with another person. My boy used to play this game with the grandparents when they came over to visit, and it was great fun watching them laughed and giggled despite the language barrier.
