Review: Petit Collage Busy Bugs Memory Game

LP and Little Man love playing games together or as a family with Hubby and I but it’s always nice to find a game where the children can play with limited help from adults and when Bigjigs sent us the Petit Collage Busy Bugs Memory Game as our latest Play Patrol review I hoped it would be something LP and Little Man could enjoy together.

The Petit Collage Busy Bugs Memory Game is a really simple game with 24 really thick and durable cards each with a picture of bugs on them. There are 12 pairs of bugs and the back of each of the cards has a plain design on it.

We found the Petit Collage Busy Bugs Memory Game to be the perfect game of pairs. LP and Little Man got the hang of the gameplay really quickly and happily spend time taking it in turns to turn cards over until all the pairs had been found.

The bug illustrations on the cards are lovely to look at, with lots of detail and beautiful colours. The cards are really hard wearing with a slightly glossy finish and the box is well made, perfect for keeping the cards safe until the next time you play.

LP and Little Man love the Busy Bugs Memory Game and I know it will be a game that is played regularly in future. They have already played it with other friends and it is definitely a firm favourite.

The Petit Collage Busy Bugs Memory Game has an RRP of £12.99

Review: Petit Collage Pop Out and Colour Castle

Little Man and LP were sent the Petit Collage Pop Out and Colour Castle from Bigjigs Toys as their latest Play Patrol review product. The children have never had a toy before which they need to colour in and then put together so this was sure to be a really new experience for them.

The Petit Collage Pop Out and Colour Castle comes in a really sturdy recycled card box and incorporates four thick card boards with pop out castle shapes as well as a sheet of stickers and colouring pencils. The set gives everything you need to make your own castle play set.

The castle pieces are easier to colour in if you leave them attached to the boards and pop them out after. The boards are double sided so with eight sides to colour they give a lot of colouring time. The children shared the colouring in and between them coloured the boards and popped out the shapes ready to make the castle.

The castle easily slots together and has instructions on which pieces go where to make it as simple as possible. Once constructed the castle is really hard wearing and solid and also includes a horse and prince and princess figures.

Once constructed the whole play set gives children a whole platform to explore imaginative play and create stories around. LP and Little Man love anything involving castles and princesses so the Petit Collage Pop Out and Colour Castle has been a hit with them form the start.

The Petit Collage Pop Out and Colour Castle would keep children entertained for hours with the colouring in and construction side and then creates a really worthwhile toy that could last indefinitely if well looked after.

The Petit Collage Pop Out and Colour Castle has an RRP of £8.99
