Guess Who? Board Game…

(Ages 6+. 2 Players, Available on Amazon)

It’s the Guess Who? game – the original guessing game! This Guess Who? game goes back to the tabletop style boards, styled after the original, rather than handheld boards. Each player chooses a mystery character and then using yes or no questions, they try to figure out the other player’s mystery character. When they think they know who their opponent’s mystery character is, players make a guess. If the guess is wrong, that player loses the game! Players can also challenge opponents to a series of games in the Championship Series, where the first player to win 5 games is the Guess Who? champion.

My Fabulous Storyteller…

French children’s brand Lunii is introducing its interactive story creator, My Fabulous Storyteller, to the UK.

The My Fabulous Storyteller aims to harness the power of the storytelling tradition; a long-standing art that has allowed families to create connection, evoke emotion and stimulate imagination for centuries.

The beautifully designed child-sized device encourages the development of creativity in children aged 3 – 8 years by giving them the opportunity to build their own bespoke audio stories.

For curious young minds

Children can create their own personalised audio narrative by selecting from a range of characters, settings and objects with the easy-to-use wheel. The My Fabulous Storyteller then narrates a bespoke audio story which gives the child the opportunity to flex their creativity by inventing a whole new world including what their characters look like and where their adventure takes place.

Lunii is committed to helping children develop imagination, creativity and vocabulary through age appropriate learning. To move children through each developmental stage, Lunii has created a library of over 1,500 unique stories that can be loaded onto the device. Each vary in ability and come in a range of nine languages suitable for a variety of audiences; recently adding a bilingual album to its repertoire for dual language listeners. Alongside a range of original stories created by their own publishing house, such as The Wanderly Tales and The Rainbow Kingdom, the store also includes story albums from Roger Hargreaves’ beloved Mr Men Little Miss collection, allowing children to create stories with familiar characters and settings.

A fun alternative to screen time

Lunii is providing children with an opportunity to step away from screen-time in favour of an imagination-led alternative. Not only do the bespoke audio-stories allow children to develop their creative thinking skills, Lunii also encourages parents and children to engage in other creative activities together whilst listening to the device such as colouring, painting, drawing and dressing up.

Sweet dreams

Bedtime stories are a time when parents and caregivers connect with their children at the end of a busy day. Lunii encourages families to try their bespoke audio stories together at bedtime. The Lunii store has a bedtime stories collection and a meditation collection available for children to relax and explore mindfulness – all aiming to help little one’s drift off into a good night’s sleep.
