Garden Games: Giant Dominoes {Review}

At the beginning of October we were kindly sent a box of Giant Dominoes from GardenGames.co.uk.
I did expect them to be slightly larger than they are but they are the perfect size for small hands.
They come in a lovely wooden box which has a rope handle, so they are easy to transport from garden to house and house to garden. There is a sliding lid which unfortunately snapped in half but it was easy to get on and off before it snapped.

Of course the weather has been rather rubbish since we recieved the Dominoes so we've only been able to use them inside. This is an advantage of the Dominoes, they are suitable for inside and outside use.
The Giant Dominoes are made from pine and are really great solid quality.
As you can see from the photos below the spots on the Dominoes do scratch but this is easily rectified by using nail varnish or similar.

Charles very quickly worked out how to play, although we didn't compete, but it was a great way to encourage him to count the spots and to search for another domino with the same number of spots and the same colours. So from that point of view the Giant Dominoes are fantastic.

He was really excited when daddy came along and showed him how to line them all up and then knock them all down. And then with the discovery of building a tower these soon became the favourite toy!

The Giant Dominoes cost £31.99 and are available to buy via the Garden Games website.
 
We were sent the Giant Dominoes for the purpose of this review. All words are honest and my own.
