Cute Garten-Gauner with big eyes for children from 6

Ravensburger has another ace up its sleeve at the toy fair with the new board game Garten-Gauner. It is suitable for children aged 6 and over. On the playing field, there are easy-to-grasp trees made of printed cardboard scattered around the garden. The gardener is behind the house, in front of which there is a dustbin. This is the declared target of the greedy raccoons, colored wooden figures. When the sun flap falls in front of the balcony on the second floor, the call "1,2,3 who's sneaking past?" is heard. Now the raccoons start to hide behind the trees. If the other players have hidden their figures well, the gardener can look to see where a raccoon is hiding. If one is found, it has to go back to the front of the line.

Age-appropriate games for children's hands and eyes

It is important for children's games to bear in mind that the players are children. Children aged 6 do not have the same skills as adolescents or adults. The garden crooks are designed with this in mind, the easy-to-grasp 3D look of the bushes and trees appeals to children and the easy-to-grip wooden figures fit well in children's hands. The attractively designed gardener's house features clear colors. Not too complicated and yet full of free play options, the garden crooks are recommended for entertaining playtime fun.
