Puzzles & Board Games

Fun For All

Parents are always seeking great ways to keep children entertained when indoor play is a necessity. Puzzles make ideal companions for solo players, while children from age five and up love to challenge friends and family to a board game. Hong Kong toy makers have taken up the gauntlet and are fighting back with board games that have become family favourites.

Piece By Piece

Puzzles are great ways for children to develop their hand-eye coordination and thinking skills, and Joyful Packaging & Printing Co Ltd offers a huge variety of puzzles for all ages. For example, the animal puzzles featuring farm and jungle scenes are made up of 70 pieces while the dinosaurs puzzle series is comprised of 500 pieces.

Chess Champs

The classic game of chess is given a new look in the hands of board games maker IEC Asia Ltd. Instead of traditional chessmen, one version is played using chess pieces shaped as Coca-Cola bottle caps, Coke cans, Coke drinks, Cola-drinking polar bears and drinks machines. Other models available include Tezuka Osamu characters, Super Heroes and Disney chess pieces. These are sold in major markets in the US and Germany.

The 8-in-1 Magnetic Games Set comes in a case that contains family favourites chess and checkers, snakes and ladders, parcheesi, solitaire and backgammon. There is also a 6-in-1 version.

Built To Fit

Maybe it's in the genes, but boys especially seem to love building sets. Educational construction toy specialist neu kreation ltd's Fit and Build game comprises 42 plastic pieces that interlock to make fantastic structures. There's also Mosaic Build, where children can slot mosaic pieces into a compact board to create different scenes.

Roll The Dice

Serious backgammon players should look no further than Tai Fat Bakelite Industrial Ltd's deluxe set. Its plush felt board is set in an elegant, padded carry case that will have the competition psyched out even before the game has begun. The instructions included also offer tips on best opening moves and hints on strategy.
