What I like about Saidina Kids Playday ?
Simple & Easy: My 4years old daughter learn how to count from playing this game. After she dice, she knows she knows how to count the number on the dice and then she knows how many steps to go forward. If she wants to buy a plaything, she knows how to count the money note denomination and pay.
Entertainment: My children love it as they easily identify these playthings found in a playground. They are excited to buy and own their favourite plaything in this game.
Bonding: It is a great indoor board game for family and friends to spend quality time together.
Improved EQ: Kids learn to be patience playing the long game. I also find that my kids can handle their emotions better when winning or losing the game. (Initially, they will throw tantrum or try cheating if need to pay when landed on someone else plaything)
