Full Review:

Love playing board games with your kids but hate the mess and the missing pieces? Problem solved! Winter Land is an engaging, super simple Candy Land-style game, where kids can help Santa race to the North Pole and save Christmas.

While there's a bit of instructive reading at the beginning, the rest of gameplay is strictly fun. Simply tap cards and move your character—each one a toy that’s fallen out of Santa’s sleigh—the dictated number of colored spaces. The board is full of interactive surprises on the way; keep an eye out for slides, ladders and the occasional mini game, which offer up extra points. This interactive board game allows up to four players is a breath of fresh and frosty air in the interactive game sphere—perfect for family bonding time. Plus, the characters and themes are non-denominational so everyone can play … so long as they watch out for usual holiday suspects, like Santa and the Abominable Snowman.

Featuring quiet music and zero annoying sound effects, this game will keep young and old alike entertained this season—a welcome change to the holiday tradition roundup.

Teacher Features:
Counting is a main feature of this game, as with some of the included mini games as well, making it great for starter math.
