Simplicity in a game is something that I cherish—a sentiment that is likely shared by anyone with a preschool-aged child! Complicated games that contain countless pieces are much more likely to end up gathering dust on a shelf instead of being frequently enjoyed. I’ve recently discovered a delightfully simple and extremely entertaining game called Hullabaloo.
The game consists of 16 colorful play pads in various colors and shapes, each with an image printed on it. The large audio console has one big red button—and that’s it! There are no small breakable pieces, and best of all, the game can be opened, set up, and played in just a matter of minutes. You won’t need to spend an extensive amount of time deciphering an instruction book while anxious preschoolers wait.
