I've just reviewed (here) this fabulously retro blast-from-the-past that will have you squealing as you remember long-forgotten games from your youth before dissolving into giggles as you explain them to your kids and then play them all together ! It's a lovely trip down memory lane and a great reference manual to dip into for fun things to do on rainy days or during the long school holidays.

I have one copy to give away to one lucky reader. In order to win, you must do all of the following :

1. Follow my blog (see google friends connect on the right)

2. Leave me a comment with a way of contacting you via twitter or email. Please note : If you don't reply to my message asking for your details within a week, I'll have to pick another winner. This is not compulsory to win but I'd love to hear about some of the games you remember from your childhood.


Bonus entries :
1. Tweet about this giveaway on twitter and leave me an extra comment to say you've done so with your twitter name.
2. Leave me a comment on any one of my blogposts and leave me a message here to say which one you commented on. You can do this up to five times, leave one comment per entry.

Good luck ! UK only. Closing date : 28/11/2010

  1. love this product and thanks for letting me know about your blog. I think we have lost so much in these days of electronic games and that a return to the old-fashioned is long overdue.
    Families working and playing together - has to be a very good thing.
    Please enter me and hope you get lots of entries and new interest in your blog

    I remember desperately wanting the game Mousetrap as a child. When I did eventually get it, it was a huge disappointment, never quite working how it was supposed to :(

  14. As a child my favourite outdoor game was skipping with "enders" turning the rope and everyone jumping in and out doing rhymes and actions. Indoors I enjoyed draughts.

    I loved the game where you put a tennis ball in a stocking and then stand with your back to the wall and bounce the ball on either side of you. I never understood the point of it, but it kept me entertained for hours!!
