Review: Mr Pop – a Family Game from Ideal at John Adams

Introducing the Mighty Monster Fun Activity Pad from Puzzler

LP and Little Man have loved magazines from their toddler days but I’ve noticed recently that their favourite part of any magazine is the games. They love to do word searches, mazes and simple crosswords and love it when we go to restaurants and their activity sheets have games on them too.
