Bestest Christmas Gift Guide – Farmville Hungry Hungry Herd
For all the digital gubbins in my children’s life, I find there’s still a place for the old traditional board game. There’s nothing quite like being gathered around the table on a wet Sunday afternoon, yelling and shouting at each other as you desperately try to win (competitive? us? ).
One of our old trusty favourites form when the boys were really small was Hungry Hippos – and it’s still as madly fought over now. So it was fun to see this new twist on the same game – only this time Hasbro have joined forces with on of the most popular online games of recent years – Farmville.
So instead of Hippos, you now have farmyard animals fighting it out for the ‘food’ – but it’s the same noisy, exciting, clattery shouty game to play whether you’re bashing the back end of a hippo or a cow!
(plus there’s the small matter of the code inside the box for Farm Cash in your online game!)
It’s a brilliant store cupboard stand-by for the coming holidays, and every child (and *cough* grown up children too) will love to play. Available from all good toy shops, Hungry Hungry Herd is currently on Amazon for £11.99
