Sweet Southern Lovin had the opportunity to work with Wonder Forge. I received 2 games from them to review. I received Sofia the First Magical Tea Time Game. This is a game that not only helps with manners but is also ideal for preschoolers to help them use their imagination. It includes: the game board, 4 place settings, 3 Fairy Headmistresses plates, 36 treat tiles, 1 putter pot, and 4 teacups. This game is really fun to play. Once you have the game board set up you set up the Fairy Headmistress Plates. There is a pink, blue, and green one. You also place the air puffer Teapot where it can easily be reached by every player. Each player is then given a place setting and a Teacup. While that is being done all the treats can be placed on the game board with the treat side up. When it is your turn you pick one treat. Whatever is on the bottom of the treat depends on what you do next. Here are the things you can do:
• Color- If you turn over your treat and see a green, blue or pink side, then you put that treat on the matching color of the Fairy Headmistress.
•Multi-Color – If you turn over you treat and the and find multi-colors on the bottom, you get to pick which Fairy Headmistress plate you want to put it on.
•Teacup- If your treat has a teacup on the underside you put the treat on your place setting Then you pick up the teacup and blow on your tea to make it spin. Once it has stopped spinning, you will get to take all the treats from the Fairy Headmistress plate that matches the color you blew and place them on your place setting.
•Teapot- If you turn over your treat and find the teapot you get to put that treat on your place setting and take the air puffer teapot and turn to the player on the left and squeeze the teapot above their cup to make it spin. Once it has stopped spinning whatever color it lands on they get all of the treats from that Fairy Headmistresses plate. Continue doing this to the next player to your left until you have poured everyone some tea, then make yourself some.
•Good Manners- These are the special ones. There are only 3 of them. There is one for if your elbows are off the table or you’re the first player to take their elbows off the table you will get this treat. The first player to stand up and curtsey will get the curtsey treat. Finally the thank you treat. The player that said please or thank you most recently receives this treat.
When all of the treats are gone (you keep playing until they are gone) the player with the most treats is the winner. My girls have loved playing this game, and while its enjoyable for my 4-year-old, it is not to hard or complicated for my 3-year-old to understand. This is the perfect gift for any Sofia the First fan and would be an awesome present under the Christmas tree. To find out more about this game you can visit here. Sofia the First Magical Tea Time Game can be found in many stores across the country and can also be purchased on Amazon for only $33
