We like to play games in our family, and I especially love a game that will keep Henrik occupied for a couple of hours. I grew up playing with this very Mix Max game from Ravensburger and it has been in my family since before I was born. I don’t even remember the rules (they have since been lost) but possibilities of play are simple and endless. Basically just mix a hat, head, body, and legs to make whatever person you’d like.
Henrik gets such a kick out of the funny different looking people he comes up with. It’s so fun to watch him giggling at all his creations.
You can find something similar here.
Oh my god, I so loved this game as a child! Our whole family spent hours of mismatching characters and giggling… I didn’t know, that it’s still available.
This is so cute! And I love that you have the same game from your childhood.
It reminds me a little bit of the Djeco magnets which work is the same fun way: https://babyccinokids.com/blog/2012/06/25/djeco-magnets/
Djeco memo grizli is similar, but with bears. Great illustration, and you can download the rules…I am sure they can be applied to other mix and match games:)
Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll have to check it out.
where can I purchase the Mix Max and the Piquages sew cards? I am located in Atlanta GA USA
I just bought one for Max here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0007TXTJ8/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00
Hi, thanks so much for such great toy idea! I´ve been searching for ideas to entertain my little 2 year old since he seems to get bored with his current toys…. and this is fantastic!
