What's trending 2018

The world’s biggest toy fair ‘Spielwarenmesse’, held annually in Nuremberg, Germany, has revealed three key toy trends for 2018.

Trend 1. Explore Nature
All of us, especially children, spend far too time looking at ‘screens’and less time playing outdoors. ‘Explore Nature’ aims to bring children closer to nature,and encourages them to explore and learn more about the natural world around.
Trend 2. Team Spirit
Through life and work we all develop team skills. Together as a team, we are stronger, more capable of solving problems and completing tasks. Through team play, children can strengthen their social and emotional skills, develop communication skills, and improve confidence. By working together we can achieve!
Trend 3. Just for Fun
Must toys have a deeper meaning and invariably possess a learning function? Sometimes, toys should just be good fun! Children should be encouraged to play for play’s sake and simply let their imagination and creativity run wild – indirectly developing their physical, cognitive and emotional strength.
With SEMBRA, children can have fun exploring nature and learn new life skills with others

SEMBRA’s range of ‘sow and grow kits’ encompass many elements of all Spielwarenmesse’s three toy trends for 2018.  With SEMBRA, children and parents can reconnect, share in an activity, experience the joys of completing projects together and have fun getting their hands dirty!

Something EXCITING is happening at Traditional Garden Games

Watch this space - as something exciting is happening at Traditional Garden Games!
Here at Traditional Garden Games we love nothing more than selling games for everyone to enjoy - well, we are in the business of creating fun and happy memories after all! 
From Jumbo Dominoes and Pick-up Sticks to timeless lawn sports such as Quoits and Boules, and not forgetting our top selling Sports Day Set, Rounders and 4-in-a Row — there’s hours of fun for all to be had with our outdoor essentials.
Want more fun?
As if 50 garden games wasn't enough, Traditional Garden Games are adding a further 10 games to it's eclectic range of products. While the 'TGG Team' claim that there's been a lot blood, sweat and tears in developing this new range of games - we know (secretly) they've had the best fun ever!  Although to be fair, we have noticed a significant change in The Boss' hair colour - but we'll put that down to an #agething shall we? 
So, what's NEW?
Ok, we're not reinventing the wheel - that's been working perfectly well for thousands of years apparently, but what we have done is develop a range of games which will appeal to all ages and can be played indoors and out.  Plus, priced between £9.99 and £19.99 they'll make great gift ideas whatever the time of year! 
Hook a winner with our charming ‘Big Fish, Little Fish’ game, try to hide your ‘hand’ with ‘XXL Playing Cards’ or together, pull 'the weaklings' over the winning line with ‘Tug of War’ – 'piles of smiles' and lots of laughter are definitely guaranteed!
When can you buy?
Online, our lovely new range will be available in good time before the crazy Christmas rush.  A number of independent retailers will have stock on their shelves early November.  Please watch this space for further updates.

Looking Forward...

 

Traditional Garden Games main focus has been to get people together and to enjoy each other’s company through playing with our traditional and timeless games

We find ourselves in a constantly evolving world going through many changes. The way that people want to be, what they want to have and the experiences they want are constantly changing – so too the things that make leisure time more enjoyable.

 

– In a world where there is little time for family togetherness and an unhealthy lifestyle balance we want to help create memories to look back on that will last a lifetime.

This evolution of Traditional Garden Games is something we are all very happy about, after all the only way to keep creating those priceless moments and making leisure time more enjoyable is to keep challenging , adapting and changing.

 

We have worked tirelessly to create products that are ideally suited for children and adults to spend more time in the garden. Through careful product design, use of materials, colours, innovative ideas – our new design concepts are such that they will be attractive for kids and loved by parents.

We are very excited about the introduction of our modern designs and concepts for 2017.
