Playing board games is good for your health :o)

Have you fond memories of playing board games with family and friends?  Whether it was Saturday nights in, camping and caravan holidays or even when there was a power cut, the board games were always brought out for a bit of family fun - even by candlelight!

Fast forward 30 or 40 years and family fun time is very different!  Heaven forbid if there's a power cut!  The horror and panic in everyone's faces! NO XBox/Play Stations, NO TV and if phones or tablets are not charged - NO Candy Crush or Social Media. Total disaster!! 

All this reliance on screen time to entertain is having a negative impact on your family's health.  But by playing board games, you can:

  • Help family cohesion
  • Help reduce isolation
  • Keep your brain younger for longer
  • Help with children‚Äôs cognitive and social development
  • Help reduce stress
At Traditional Garden Games, we're in the business of creating happy memories with our games for outdoors.  This year, why not have more fun together outside with family and friends with our BIG board games.  Piles of smiles are promised with our Snakes & Ladders, Chess, Ludo,Crossword and Draughts games.  And if you're looking for a little fitness fun, check out our garden sports ranges. 
Make happy family memories this year with Traditional Garden Games

What's trending 2018

The world‚Äôs biggest toy fair ‚ÄėSpielwarenmesse‚Äô, held annually in Nuremberg, Germany, has revealed three key toy trends for 2018.

Trend 1. Explore Nature
All of us, especially children, spend far too time looking at ‚Äėscreens‚Äôand less time playing outdoors. ‚ÄėExplore Nature‚Äô aims to bring children closer to nature,and encourages them to explore and learn more about the natural world around.
Trend 2. Team Spirit
Through life and work we all develop team skills. Together as a team, we are stronger, more capable of solving problems and completing tasks. Through team play, children can strengthen their social and emotional skills, develop communication skills, and improve confidence. By working together we can achieve!
Trend 3. Just for Fun
Must toys have a deeper meaning and invariably possess a learning function? Sometimes, toys should just be good fun! Children should be encouraged to play for play‚Äôs sake and simply let their imagination and creativity run wild ‚Äď indirectly developing their physical, cognitive and emotional strength.
With SEMBRA, children can have fun exploring nature and learn new life skills with others

SEMBRA‚Äôs range of ‚Äėsow and grow kits‚Äô encompass many elements of all Spielwarenmesse‚Äôs three toy trends for 2018.¬† With SEMBRA, children and parents can reconnect, share in an activity, experience the joys of completing projects together and have fun getting their hands dirty!

Here at Traditional Garden Games we love nothing more than selling games for everyone to enjoy - well, we are in the business of creating fun and happy memories after all!

Want more fun?
As if 50 garden games wasn't enough, Traditional Garden Games are adding a further 10 games to it's eclectic range of products. While the 'TGG Team' claim that there's been a lot blood, sweat and tears in developing this new range of games - we know (secretly) they've had the best fun ever!  Although to be fair, we have noticed a significant change in The Boss' hair colour - but we'll put that down to an #agething shall we? 
So, what's NEW?
Ok, we're not reinventing the wheel - that's been working perfectly well for thousands of years apparently, but what we have done is develop a range of games which will appeal to all ages and can be played indoors and out.  Plus, priced between £9.99 and £19.99 they'll make great gift ideas whatever the time of year! 
Hook a winner with our charming ‚ÄėBig Fish, Little Fish‚Äô game, try to hide your ‚Äėhand‚Äô with ‚ÄėXXL Playing Cards‚Äô or together, pull¬†'the weaklings'¬†over the winning line with ‚ÄėTug of War‚Äô ‚Äď 'piles of smiles' and lots of laughter are definitely guaranteed!
When can you buy?
Online, our lovely new range will be available in good time before the crazy Christmas rush.  A number of independent retailers will have stock on their shelves early November.  Please watch this space for further updates.
