The family that plays together stays together. Yet, board games can be long and boring (especially with little kids). When I saw the Chicky Boom game at Toy Fair, I knew I found a winner. This games is designed for 2-4 players and helps kids develop steady hands.
The wooden game from Blue Orange is easy to master. Load up the see-saw until it balances (half the fun) and then take turns removing chickens, wagon wheels and hay bales. When out of balance, everything tips--boom! The individual pieces are also fun to play with. And like all the toys in the Momtrends 2009 Gift Guide...NO BATTERIES REQUIRED.Buy Chicky Boom on Amazon.com for $21.95
