Princess and the Pea Game
This charming game is one of
our favorite HABA games; it really captures the children's imaginations
(and around here at Blueberry Forest sometimes the game's beds and
mattresses end up in the Kinderkram dollhouse - such lovely
dollhouse-size cushions and mattresses!)
Here's the gist of the
game: Is the princess really a princess?
The players pile up cushions, blankets and mattresses for the
"princess mattress test." At the bottom of it all, of course, lies the pea!
This wobbly piling cooperative game has 2 variations, for 1-4 players.
In the beginners' version,
players take turns rolling the die and add mattresses or remove them
according to where the princess lands on the playing board. If the
tower falls over before all the mattresses have been piled up, everyone loses. If the players succeed in stacking all the pieces into one pile without the tower falling over, everyone wins.
(The game also has an advanced variation.)
Includes the fairytale story to read over and over again.
For ages 3+.
