Staying in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic is certainly not an easy task, especially when you have three kids at house to entertain. Obviously being caved in homes for months is not something we would wholeheartedly choose. But it would have been much easier when there’re no kids at home.

Imagine you can re-watch the entire seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S (check out their cast now) without being interrupted by your toddler, you can brew your own bear, cook elaborated meals in the evening and finish reading all the books pending in the list; life is good and peaceful!

December Global Holidays as displayed on Google homepage are already here and your kids are expecting something different than the usual routine. And sorry to disappoint you but that same homeschool-TV-sleep-repeat routine won’t work during the holidays.

Carcassonne Review | Board Game Halv

This game may look like an adult complicated board, but in reality, it is equally exciting and challenging to the 7 years old.

Qwirkle — Toycra

A Quirkle card game includes a set of 108 tiles with six different colors and shapes. Players are required to make sequences in exchange of points.
