Monkey is 5 and half now and some of his peers have already started losing their baby teeth. Although his look firmly entrenched at the moment he already understands the concept of the tooth fairy. I thought it might be fun to try out The Magic Tooth Fairy Game from Drumond Park and see what Monkey thought.
The game is aimed at children aged 5 years and over and can be played with 2-4 players. Monkey’s attention was grabbed as soon as we opened the box. The board and play piece characters have a cartoon feel to them and are perfect for this age group.
The game consists of a Magic Bed, Tooth Fairy Wand, 13 golden coins (Monkey was a tad disappointed they weren’t chocolate!!), play board, 4 mouths and teeth, 4 playing pieces and a dice.
Preparing the game is easy – slot the golden coins in the top of the magic bed.
Then give each player a mouth and 4 teeth. Fit each tooth into the mouth and stand up in front of you.
Set the play board up with the Magic Bed in the Centre of the board and then each player chooses their play piece, and puts them on a space in front of them.
The first time we played The Magic Tooth Fairy Game I set the game up before Monkey came home from school, so the game play would be a total surprise. It went down well.
As he is the youngest he got to play first. You spin the spinner on the bed and move your play piece the relevant number of spaces, moving clockwise. (Excuse the state of the school uniform – he was in too much of a hurry to play!)
You then follow the instructions of the space you land on.
Woobly Tooth – can you pull your tooth out? Throw the Fairy dice …..
…… if it rolls on orange, your tooth isn’t ready to come out yet and play passes to the next player. If you rolls on blue, congratulations, your tooth is ready to come out. Pull it out of your mouth and place it in your backpack.
Play then passes to the next player.
Go to Bed – if you don’t already have a tooth in your backpack then play passes on to the next player. This didn’t always make for easy play with Monkey. But he is slowly accepting that he can’t always get everything he wants in one go! If you do have a tooth in your backpack, it’s time to find out if you remembered to put it under your pillow! Spin the arrow on the bed – if it lands on 1, then you had forgotten, and play moves on. But if the arrow points to 2,3 or 4 then you did remember.
Lift up the magic pillow and place your tooth underneath, then replace your pillow.
Push the Tooth Fairy Wand down in the slot at the head of the bed, make sure it’s pushed down as far as it will go!
Life the pillow up and …….. yes, that good old Magic Tooth Fairy has left a golden coin!
Spin Again – exactly as it says, spin again, move your play piece on and follow the relevant instructions.
The winner of the game is the first player to swap all their teeth for golden coins.
When you want to play again, just remove all of the teeth from the bottom of the bed, reload the golden coins and you are ready to play again.
The Magic Tooth Fairy Game has been a big hit here, and Monkey just loves the who concept of the Magic Bed – teeth going under the pillow and coins coming out. It’s a fin game and great to see children’s reactions, especially on their first go. Retailing for £19.99 this is another great family game from Drumond Park.
