TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
The popular party game Wits and Wagers has gotten a family style makeover. Wits and Wagers Family features 300 questions that kids will most likely know the answers to—they might even know more than their parents! The rules and scoring system have also been simplified so that the game is easier to learn and play for kids. The game can be played by up to five individuals or teams. One player reads a question and everyone writes a guess on his or her answer board. Place your answer face-up on the table so everyone can see it. Feeling confident about your guess? Place a Meeple (a person-shaped wooden piece) on it to try and score more points. Think mom knows better? Place a Meeple on her guess. Now it's time to reveal the correct answer. The person with the winning guess scores one point and players with a Meeple on the winning guess can win one or two points. The first player or team to 15 points wins. Wits and Wagers Family is a simple and fast-paced game (one game takes about 20 minutes to play) that is perfect for family game night.
The best part of Wits and Wagers Family is that you don't really have to know the answers to the questions. The game is all about guessing and then betting on whose answer sounds the most correct. You'll also learn a lot of interesting trivia and facts as you play.
Wits and Wagers Family comes with 150 question cards, five dry-erase answer boards, five dry-erase pens, five large Meeples, five small Meeples, one dry-erase score board, and rules.
