I have two fantastic games to giveaway to two of my readers thanks to Big Fish Games, just in time for Christmas for whatever game you like from a choice of thousands, simply enter the FREE rafflecopter below to be in with a chance of winning. Christmas is such a charming time of year for little ones, as everything is magical, sparkling, festive and imaginative. There’s nothing nicer than snuggling up together on the sofa on a cold winters evening, content from dinner, homework finished, toys tidied away and settling down together for a festive family game. It certainly beats another night in front of the TV and is incredibly exciting, not to mention educational for the little ones.
The children love the beautiful colours, pictures and toys as each puzzle is a work of art, twinkling, glistening and enchanting. The great thing about playing hidden object games is that there is no time limit, no hurry, panic or losing involved, and the festive music is lovely to listen to whilst the children’s faces light up and scan the screen for what they’re trying to find. My 7yr old daughter Millie is able to read the words from the list and click them with the mouse on screen, and my 2.5yr old son Gabriele points out “cat!” “ball!” “presents!” which is great for vocabulary building, hand-eye co-ordinatation and IT skills whilst enjoying a festive game with a cup of snowman hot chocolate.
There are a fantastic selection of tasks within Christmas Wonderland 4 across many levels for every age to enjoy; from finding Christmas presents in the town parade to matching gift labels at the North Pole, putting Christmas lists in a puzzle back together, colouring and decorating trees, donating money to charity, lighting the logs on the fire and matching world famous landmarks on package stamps to their flags on gift tags. As an adult I love it just as much as the children, and it’s highly entertaining to all be looking for an item together and then jump and squeal as the person to find it. We work at each level as a team, helping each other and giving little Gabriele clues for him to point out the presents for which he stands up and claps when he finds it.
And if you do need a little help there’s a hint button you can click which shoots a sparkle across the screen to highlight what you’re looking for, and you can use it as often as you like so that you never get stuck or lose interest. After you complete each level it saves your progress and you can carry on where you left off the next time that you come to play. I wouldn’t say the game was easy, medium or hard for ability, more observational and problem solving which all ages can accomplish, making it the perfect festive game for the holidays.
Christmas Wonderland 4 costs just £7.70 and can be downloaded for a one-hour free trial first if you’d like to try before you buy. The complete game is 146MB and we have ours on our Windows 8 home PC with Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7 also available. Our browser is Internet Explorer 8 and it took just a few minutes to download, with a festive icon on our desktop so that the children simply need to double click to return to their game.
I have two fantastic voucher codes to give away here on my blog allowing my lovely readers to download any game that you like at Big Fish which is a treasure trove of entertainment for all ages. To be in with a chance of winning a code simply enter the free rafflecopter below!
