Pressman Toys Review & (CLOSED) Giveaway!

***Giveaway entry period is over - winner announcement coming soon!***

Pressman Toys has been producing games since 1922 and offer games for every age group from preschoolers to adults.  One of their most popular games, Mastermind has been around for over 30 years.  You can now find over 8 different versions of the game including Disney, Sponge Bob and Green Lantern. 
My family was sent a few games from Pressman to "test" out.  My son was extremely excited to see the Dinosaur Train Make A Match Game.  He watches Dinosaur Train regularly and loved seeing all of his favorite characters on the cards.  The game is for ages 3-6 and gives a different spin to matching games with Wild Cards, Lose a Pair and my son's favorite Take a Buddy.  The Buddy figurine adds a fun element to the game.

We enjoyed playing Animal Matermind Towers. The age level of this game is for age 6 and up.  I thought my son who's 4 did pretty good at the basics of the game play.  He loved selecting his animal tiles and choosing the order to put in his tower.  He needs to work a little on the guessing the order of the opponent's animal tiles.  The game uses matching skills and logical thinking and is a fun strategy game.  I think we'll enjoy it even more as he gets older.

We also received the Chimp and Zee On Safari Craft Kit for ages 4 and up.  The first night we just had fun checking out all the pieces in the set and seeing what we could create. My daughter snagged the stickers that were included right away so we had to do some imagineering with those. They would have stayed up much longer playing with it all if I would have let them!  I loved that it is easy to pick up and store right back in the box for later play.


The Giveaway:  Thanks to Pressman Toys one lucky Confessions of a Frugal Mind reader will win a prize package that includes all 3 of the games mentioned above!  The winner will receive Dinosaur Train Make A Match, Animal Mastermind Towers and Chimp and Zee On Safari Craft Set!
