LP is more than a little bit in love with all things to do with princesses at the moment and Disney Princess things are her favourite so when we were sent the Disney Princess Enchanted Cupcake Party Game to review she literally squealed in delight and I promised her we could play it when she got home from her first day at school.
The Disney Princess Enchanted Cupcake Party Game comes in a well designed box to keep all the cupcakes in place and also give you a reminder of which cake goes where. The game includes ten cupcakes, cupcake cards and thick card playing pieces.
We found that the Disney Princess Enchanted Cupcake Party Game is quite simple to play but first you have to set up the game by taking the cupcakes apart. Each cupcake is made of four pieces – the wrapper, cake, icing and finishing touch on the top. The idea of the game is to put the cupcakes back together again.
Once the cupcake pieces are in a pile in the middle you can lay out the playing pieces and give each player an equal number of cupcake cards. Players take it in turns to turn over a playing card and complete the action on the card – picking a cake piece that they need to make the cakes on their cards for example. Other cards have part of a clock face and when the clock is fully made the game ends – the game could also end when one person has made all their cakes! There’s another card that tells you to turn all the playing cards over again which makes the game last a while longer and is a great feature of the game.
LP and even Little Man loved playing this game. They enjoyed hunting for the right pieces to make their cakes and making sure the designs matched the cards. The jigsaw aspect of putting the cupcakes together really held their imagination and in an ideal world at the end of the game you shouldn’t have too much tidying up to do as most of the cakes should be complete!
This game is a lot of fun and LP loves it. She also knows which cake belongs to which princess just by the finishing touch on the top – knowing that Ariel would obviously have a seashell on her cake and Cinderella would have a shoe on hers! This really captured her imagination and I know it will be a firm favourite going forward.
The Disney Princess Enchanted Cupcake Party Game has an RRP of £17.99
