Winning Moves

The beloved game that was popular in the 1980’s is now available on a key ring it is Rubik's Cube! I remember sitting hours trying to figure out how to get all the colors lined up red, orange, green, white, yellow and blue but were never successful at it.  For ages 8 and up you can play while you wait for the doctor, dentist, oil change, dinner and where ever you may go that requires you to wait. I really enjoy playing the mini version of the Rubik’s Cube and having it on my car key ring. To see more visit

Winning Moves also sent me The Velveteen rabbit Game this is for ages 4 and up with 1bifold gameboard, 4 Velveteen Rabbit Movers with Plastic Bases, 1 Oversized Spinner, 4 Cardboard Pink Hearts, 16 Picture cards, and instructions. The object of the game is to race your special Velveteen Rabbit move around the board collecting story cards along the way. Special “hop” spaces add to player’s enjoyment. The first player to make it back to the center of the board with all their cards earns a pink heart and wins the game. To see more visit

The last game I got is Chutes and Ladders for ages 4 and up and includes a heavy duty bi-fold game board, 4 movers with plastic bases, oversized spinner and illustrated instructions. The object of the game is to spin the spinner and move the spaces you get going up ladders and down chutes, a child will learn by the pictures on the board the rewards of good deeds and the consequences of naughty ones. The first player to reach the number 100 space is the winner. This board has the original 1970’s artwork which I remember ever so clearly when I was a child. To see more visit

My Opinion: This is my first time playing The Velveteen rabbit and it is so much fun with my young nieces and, of course, the Rubik's cube keyring is a blast and so is Chutes and Ladders.
