Games to Grow On!

See? I'm Big Enough to Play Games, Too!

Here at Happy Up, we believe in the power of games. They can teach, they can entertain, and most of all, they bring people together. And we are very sure that playing a board game with your toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners is a wonderful thing.

Unless the games you're playing are awful. There is nothing worse than getting trapped in a Candy Land space-time loop that will. never. end...

Playing games with really young kids can be absolute torture. But what if ... What if the games are good? What if they're actually fun and the entire family wants to play?

These are some of the early learner games currently on our shelves that we like. That we enjoy playing. That we think will be a great addition to your game shelf!
