Ok; so two things happened this weekend in my house:

  1. My children were amazed by a tablet game that brought a figurine to life in front of their eyes.
  2. We all played a game together as a family.

Oniri Islands is a fabulous new game, appropriate for children 6 and up.  You basically use actually figurines which are the two main characters (Mina and Tim) and travel along an island where they are lost and searching for shadows.  Literally you place the figures on your tablet  and move across the “board” as they come to life on-screen.  The kids were completely enraptured with the game and worked together as a team to collect animal masks that gave their characters special powers!  I loved the music and the bright colors/great visual features and how different this game was from the “run of the mill” games they play everyday.  The app is free to download and your kit comes with the figures and masks you need to play!

Please check this game out; you will love it as much as we do!  Great family time, working together and everyone was all smiles!
