Many of the new games have been inspired by Britain’s greatest childrens’ authors and star iconic literary characters.
Launching and available in time for World Book Day is the award-winning Gangsta Granny Stash the Swag Board Game from The World of David Walliams. A fantastic, easy play board game that encourages strategic thinking, the title has already scooped a Toy Fair Hero Toys award this year.
Also new for this spring is a colourful series of 35-piece puzzles and an educational Matching Game in an embossed tin, starring the renowned Oi Frog! Oi Cat! and Oi Dog! characters from the award-winning rhyming storybooks.
Richard Wells, managing director of Paul Lamond Games, commented: “Children learn best when they are having fun and enjoying themselves. If you add in familiar characters that they have grown up with, along with fun and creative games play, it creates engagement, allowing children to learn through play – and offers a great opportunity for the family to spend time together.”
Alongside the new spring launches, Paul Lamond will release a set of three fun educational games starring some of Roald Dahl’s most loved and iconic characters; The BFG’s Whizzpopping Letters, Matilda’s Splendid Spelling and Charlie’s Marvelous Maths Card Games.
The award-winning Horrible Histories series has inspired a board game. Players move from the Awful Ancients to the Measly Middle Ages, through the Terrible Tudors and the Vile Victorians to modern times by answering ‘Horrible’ multiple choice questions, acting out charades and trying to avoid Rattus and his tricky Chance cards.
In the new pre-school Dinosaur Roar Board Game, Dinosaur Squeak is looking for all her Dinosaur friends. Players answer prehistoric questions, name different dinosaurs and make the loudest roar to collect dinosaur figures and help Dinosaur Squeak find her friends.
Paul Lamond also has a plethora of games and puzzles starring The Very Hungry Caterpillar, who will celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2019, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, Room on a Broom, The Highway Rat, Dear Zoo, Horrid Henry and Where’s Wally.
