Memory games with cards are something that I have enjoyed since I was a little child. Ravensburger have brought out some character versions of these games:
- Mike the Knight
- Moshi Monsters
- Thomas and Friends
- Minnie Mouse
- Hello Kitty
- Disney Princess
We were sent the Thomas version for me to try out with my son:
The cards are smaller than standard playing cards (hence the name Mini) and there are 24 pairs to try and find. Each pair is a different character from the Thomas and Friends stories and between us we could name all of them.
A quick and simple game to play and learn. I did have to stop my son from cheating though! He wasn't too keen on the fact that I won either but I was happy about it. I am sure that with practice he will start to beat me and its a great brain training tool.
Each set retails for around £4 though this seems to vary between retailers. A great stocking filler or small gift for a child that is fun for all the family.
