Top 5 Games | Game Night Should Be Every Night

Recently, we introduced Family Game Night in our home and since then we have really enjoyed all sorts of games. But nothing can beat the games from Goliath Games and Pressman Toy!

We had the opportunity to try a few more games and we are so excited to tell you all about them as they are our top 5 games for Games Night! We are also proposing that Game Night should and could be every night! Why not?!

Jumping Jack

Jumping Jack by Goliath Games provides great hours of fun and excitement to little ones with learning and surprise! Jack is an adorable little bunny who sits on his bunny hill guarding his precious carrots. Now it is the little ones’ mission to carefully pull out the carrots out of the ground and collect them in their colourful basket. But be ready for a big surprise! If you scare Jack he will jump high into the air and you never know when he will jump. But catch the rabbit and you win the game or the person with the most carrots in the basket wins the game if Jack doesn’t jump out.

We had a blast with this game and as a parent, I loved seeing my daughter get excited with the anticipation that Jack was going to jump at any time. It was so much fun! We loved the spinner and how children can use it to read instructions with images and knowing how to count the carrots that they must catch.

This delightful preschool game teaches hand-eye coordination, taking turns and quick reactions. This game is great for ages 4 and up. Two to Four players can play too. On the #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 5 hops out of 5!

Game Contents:

  • 1 Bunny Hill
  • 1 Jumping Jack Rabbit
  • 12 Carrots
  • 1 Spinner
  • 4 Baskets
  • 1 Instruction Sheet

Catch The Fox

Some clucking good times with Catch The Fox by Goliath Games. This game was so much fun that even the fox loses his pants! The sly fox is sneaking around to steal your prize chickens but lucky you, his greediness gets the best of him as he can’t carry all the chickens he stuffs in his pockets.

So how do you play this fun game? Simple! The player who makes the best clucking sound goes first. The player rolls the die and places as many chickens as indicated on the die into the Fox’s pockets. S/he may choose any pocket to put the chickens into. Before ending his/her turn, the player must firmly press the Fox’s head one time, until it clicks. If nothing happens, play follows the pecking order and continues left.

But watch out! Since the Fox is so greedy, he will end up losing his pants! When this happens, you must save the chickens as fast as you can by scooping them up one-by-one and placing them safely in your chicken coop. But watch out for FOWL play – you can only use one hand to rescue the chickens! If the Fox loses his pants and no one has a full chicken coop, keep the chickens you have and play again until at least one player has a full coop. This game is great for ages 4 and up. Two to Four players can play too.

On this #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 5 foxes out of 5! We loved the learning piece to the game as you can do counting with your child to see how many chickens they have in their coops. But above all, it is super fun!

Game Contents:

  • 1 Fox and his pants
  • 21 Chickens
  • 4 Chicken coops
  • 1 Die
  • 1 Sticker Sheet

Giggle Wiggle

Some wiggling great times with Giggle Wiggle by Goliath Games. The object of this game is to be the first player to place all of your colored balls on your section of Giggle Wiggle’s hands. This game was balls of fun and you can’t help but wiggle along the way. 😉

So how do you play this fun game? Simple! Press the caterpillar button to start Giggle Wiggle moving! The race is on! Using your fingers, place your colored balls in the hand above your base section and work your way to the top. You must pick up any of your colored balls that Giggle Wiggle drops before you continue. The game unit will randomly rotate 360 degrees during play.

The first player to successfully place all of their colored balls in their section of Giggle Wiggle’s hands wins the game. This game is great for ages 4 and up. Two to Four players can play too.

On this #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 5 wiggles out of 5! We loved the use of color, moving and the music. Most of all we love how fun it is!

Shark Bite

Watch out or the shark will bite! Shark Bite by Pressman Toy is an exciting game as you never know when the shark will come up to bite. I have to admit that I would close my eyes every time I would hook a sea creature with anticipation of the “jump.” The object of the game is to be the player who catches the most fish before the shark jumps.

So how do you play this fun game? Simple! The youngest player goes first, and the game continues clockwise. On your turn, you roll the die to indicate how many sea creatures you need to catch. Using your fishing rod, hook one sea creature at a time. You can choose whatever sea creatures you would like, but once you have hooked one, you must pull it up. If nothing happens after you catch all of your fish, the game continues. When the shark jumps, the round is over, and the player who has collected the most fish is the winner.

On this #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 5 shark bites out of 5! We had a REEL-y great time playing and we love the use of hand-eye coordination. This game is great for ages 4 and up. Two to Four players can play too.

Game Contents:

  • 1 Hungry Shark
  • 12 colorful sea creatures
  • 1 fishing rod

Build Or Boom

Build or Boom by Goliath Games is a game that inspires so much and it encompasses lots of fun! The objective of the game is to be the first one to bring the blueprint cards to life. Build your structure quickly yet carefully on your platform. Then SMASH your boomer to send your opponent’s structure tumbling. There’s only room for one building in this town…do you have what it takes? Or will you get boomed on your way to the top? This game is perfect for two players and ages four and up.

We had a blast playing this game especially since I work in the construction industry. Therefore, I loved the idea of promoting construction in this fun and interactive game. There are so many skills that can be learned with this game such as building STEM skills such as analytical thinking and shape recognition.

This game is great for two players, ages 4 and up. On the #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 5+ booms out of 5! This is such a unique game and it is a much needed game for Family Game Night.

4 Must Have Games For Family Game Night

Family game night is a popular theme in most households and it’s one that we have recently incorporated. Therefore, there was no better time than to try some games and see which ones will make it to our top four must have games.

I must say that this was one fun article to write and our daughter Nikki had a blast as she is getting the hang of the #MelAndNikkiReview now! 😉

Let’s begin shall we?!

Paint-Sation Easel

Painting with ease and without the mess sounds ideal doesn’t it? Well, that is exactly what Paint-Sation Easel by Goliath Games is all about. The easel keeps the paper secure and the side of the easel are designated spots to securely place the paint pods.

You just simply touch your brush along the specially-designed bristles, and you’re ready to paint!

We love how you can turn the pod upside- down and the paint never drips! This comes in handy with an energetic three year old. 😉 The Paint-Sation Easel provides hours of fun, creativity and art pieces for your home.

Contents: 3 Paint Pads, 1 Easel, 2 Paint Brushes and 10 Paper Sheets.
Recommended Age: 3 years and up.
Number of Players: 1 to 4 players.

 

The Original Mr. Bucket

Mr. Bucket is the original moving chasing racing action game and it is made by Pressman Toy. Just place Mr. Bucket on the floor and watch the fun begin!

Mr. Bucket moves around the floor pops out colored balls and you have to scoop them up using your colored shovel. Now the catch is that you need to catch the ball that matches your shovel. So it is bundles of fun with friends to play. Once you catch the ball you need to put it back into Mr. Bucket and the first player to get all three colored balls wins!

This game provides a lot of fun and laughs as the kiddies try to catch their color. We love the energy this game gives and it gets kids moving! Nikki loved being able to know her colors quickly and make sure she always caught the right one. Mr. Buckets makes learning fun too!

Contents: Mr. Bucket (some assembly required), 4 shovels (1 of each color), 12 balls (3 of each color), and complete instructions. Please note that this toy does require 3 AA batteries which are not included.
Recommended Age: 3 years and up.
Number of Players: 2 to 4 players.

Lucky Ducks


A game that has adorable little ducks going around while your little ones build their developmental skills is a matching perfection. Lucky Ducks offers all the benefits of memory and matching games in a format that’s easier for little fingers than cards. It also helps kids with shape and color recognition.

You switch on the circular pond, and the ducks start swimming – the bottom side of each duck has a colored shape. Each player takes turns picking up a duck and looking at the color and shape; if it matches their color and shape they get to keep he duck. If it doesn’t match then the duck goes back into the pond.

This game was really fun and had loads of learning. The best part is to see how excited Nikki would get when she got all the matching ducks. Seeing her so proud really made this game so great for us!

Contents: 1 Pond Shaped Game Unit, 12 Ducks, 1 Sticker Sheet, Complete Instructions and Requires 2 AA batteries (not included).
Recommended Age: 3 years and up.
Number of Players: 2 to 4 players.

Let’s Go Fishin’


The game that I remember and loved as a kid has me reminisce on family game nights with my sister. Now I get to share it with my daughter with Pressman Toy, Let’s Go Fishin’. This classic kids game teaches hand-eye coordination as players use their mini fishing poles to try to catch the most fish. The challenge is that the board game spins, and the fish open and close their mouths.

This game was an ultimate favorite for Nikki as she played for endless hours and each time her skills on catching the fishes were getting better and better. We adored this game and we know it will

Contents: Deluxe Motorized Game Unit, 21 Colorful Fish, 4 Plastic Fishing Rods, Complete Instructions, and Requires 1 C Battery (not included).
Recommended Age: 4 years and up.
Number of Players: 2 to 4 players.

What Did Nikki Think?

We put the real judge to the test to see if it passed the Nikki standards.

Nikki loved all the games and she was excited to play them all everyday of the week! All these four games have passed our #MelAndNikkiReview with 5 High Fives Out of 5.  All the games provided hours of entertainment, learning and fun for the whole family.

We recommend all of these games for your next family game night!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!
