Games to Go

This ingenious collection of six popular games is sure to be a traveling parent's best friend! Games include: Checkers, Tic-Tac-Toe, Snakes and Ladders (similar to Hasbro’s Chutes and Ladders), Mancala, Backgammon, and Chinese Checkers. The genius part? The games are artfully printed on a large plastic mat that is completely portable, wipe-able, and wonderfully easy to throw in the back seat for long road trips to visit the in-laws! Who needs in-vehicle DVD players? Games to Go is great fun for the whole family, whether you’re in a brand new hotel room, or just relaxing in your own den. (Alex Toys, $25.99)
