My girls and I love to spend our days playing games. And any game that will actually help them learn is a major plus in my book. My youngest’s favorite character in the entire world is Doc McStuffins. When she saw her in the Disney Junior Live show at Disney World – she squealed and jumped with happiness. It was amazing. She would watch Doc all day if I let her. She has the Doc playhouse and all the characters. So when I pulled out the Doc McStuffins Mix Up! Fix Up! game from Wonder Forge – she freaked out! We all sat down to play right away – we just could not wait.
My 3.5 year old really mastered this game and enjoys playing. My 2 year old needs a little bit of help still, but she is usually on my team to make it easier. This game has all your favorite characters as patients in Doc’s clinic. You slide a Mix Up! Fix Up! board in to your patient folder and do not show any other players. Now the other players spin the spinner to determine what questions they will ask to help determine the color, pattern, and tool in your photo. As they eliminate options (For example: “Is your diagnosis red?” “No, it is not.”), they cover them up on the board with the provided pieces. If you spin a bandage, you have to give the patient a bandage. If you guess correctly, you get a bandage! The directions say to play through until all players have been a patient – but you can do several rounds if there are enough bandages! Once you are done playing, the player with the most bandages wins! It is easy for little ones to understand, and tons of fun! It is a lot like Guess Who – but upgraded – in my opinion. The girls love it, and so do I because it teaches them problem solving! My 2 year old is getting really good at her patterns and colors thanks to this game as well! Wonder Forge has many other games featuring your favorite characters, so be sure to check them all out here! They would make the perfect addition to any family game night!
