Toys for Christmas 2004 - Family

We all rave about quality time and think about Christmas as a special moment to be shared in family. To get the fun going, there’s nothing better than a board game by the fire. Each year over £200m are spent on board games, the biggest ones are known from all of us, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Taboo, Pictionary etc... and to keep them up-to-date manufacturers offer some line extension such as the Simpsons Cluedo or Simpsons Monopoly which sometimes even prove more successful than the standard editions.

Long term favourites anchor the 10 in this all age set but watch for the new twists and the wild action for this Christmas Day
