Kid’s Game Review and Giveaway: Who’s The Princess? *WINNER ANNOUNCED*OWTK Giveaways, OWTK Toy Reviews — By Jeff on August 4, 2011 at 9:52 am
There isn’t a shortage of move along a path, collect pieces, and race to the finish games on toy store shelves. Does that entire sentence need hyphens? Not sure. What I do know is that this kind of game can seem tedious to elders and kids alike after a short while if there isn’t a strong concept, fun art, or enough potential variety to warrant repeated plays. The Busytown Eye Found It! Board Game works. Does Who’s The Princess?
Who’s The Princess?, from Pressman Toys, does indeed lend itself to sustainable attractiveness because it takes the urban planning approach to board game design: build up! There’s a 3-D, depth element to this game board and its game pieces that is a delight for young children (okay, mostly girls – and I say that as a staunch anti-gender bias fella). The idea is rather simple – players fill their carriage with an invitation, tiara and other princess-positive items as their color-coordinated royal girl moves through the enchanted forest in hopes of being the first to reach the castle. Along the way, you’re gonna wanna watch out for that nasty wicked witch!
There’s no reinventing the wheel here, but that’s okay. The concept is a proven winner and so is Who’s The Princess?
