This review is part of the Toyologist programme, where a team of hand-selected reviewers put toys to the test with their little ones for useful insight by parents, for parents.
Maddison was keen to get the cards out of packet as soon as they arrived although she did struggle as she cannot yet read, but until we were ready to sit and play she enjoyed looking at all the cards relating to the character from the minions movie and quickly deciding which ones were her favourite.
Maddison enjoyed playing the game when we all sat down together she played alongside mummy, daddy with her older sister Lana, and was able to pick the numbers she decided were the highest, while Lana told us what they had picked. A good way to get us all together and play a game, and lovely to watch the girls playing as a team. Maddison and Lana continued to make their own games with cards when we had other adult jobs to do.
The packaging for the top trumps is very smart , keeping them all together, easy to carry and stopping them from getting damaged . Unlike other playing cards, which come the card boxes, which rip, get wet and then are good for nothing. Also great for travelling, light and easy to put into a bag to amused the kids in the car etc.
The instructions are super easy to understand. Making it really simple if its your first time playing, without having to check back at the instruction regularly. We would definitely look at the other themed top trump cards for the girls.
I feel these retailing at around £4.99 is reasonable, as they are relatable to a big film and this allows children to become more involved in the game to try and keep their favourite characters.
