It is important to be prepared when travelling with kids and keeping them entertained can be a challenge.

When packing activities for the kids, we tend to pick small items that can be carried in hand luggage, so it is easily accessible.

New Interplay Take N Play Anywhere Magnetic Game Tins are ideal for taking away on travels, home and away.

Take N Play

The ultra light and convenient square tin case makes it easy to slip the games into your bag and take anywhere. The box will never get ripped or torn, keeping the magnetic contents nice and safe.

There are 6 classic games to choose from:

Hangman: Hangman is one of our kids favourite travel games and now it comes with magnetic letters and body parts to add to the fun. Guess an incorrect letter, and a body part is added. Solve the word before you get hung! Recommended for age 5+

In the box are: 62 Letter Magnets • 8 Blank Magnets • 6 Hangman Body Magnets • 2 Scoring Magnets • Magnetic Game Board 

Bingo: Spin the spinner and place your magnetic markers on the corresponding animals to shout Bingo! If you get 5 in a row first, you win! Recommended for age 4+

In the box are: 36 Magnetic Markers • Magnetic Game Board • Spinner • Rules

Nought and Crosses: Play Noughts & Crosses on the regular game board, or roll the die to play Tic-Tac-Toe on the numbered game board. Recommended for age 4+

In the Box: 6 X Magnets • 6 O Magnets • 10 Red Magnetic Markers • 10 Blue Magnetic Markers • Dice • Magnetic Game Board

Draughts: Magnetic Draughts means game fun anywhere you go! Recommended for age 5+

In the Box: 12 Red Magnetic Checkers • 12 Black Magnetic Checkers • Magnetic Game Board • Rules

Chess: The classic game of Chess. These fun, durable Chess pieces make travelling fun and easy. Recommended for age 8+

In the Box: 16 White Magnetic Pieces • 16 Black Magnetic Pieces • Magnetic Game Board • Rules

Matching: Find the matching magnetic tiles by remembering where you saw them before. Recommended for age 3+

In the Box: 32 Magnetic Tiles • Magnetic Game Board • Rules

The tins measure just 17.1cm x 17.1 cm, so the perfect size to fit on tray tables found in cars or on the plane and at £7.99 per game, they won’t break the bank either.

    These sound like the best idea to take with you! I always say to Ash we should have brought games when we head away and these seem like a great size and range.

    These are awesome! Truth be told? My husband and I have a lot of games like this on our iPad. When we’re waiting somewhere, like a restaurant we’ll play games. It’s fun and helps pass the time. xx

Are we nearly there yet? is a new online blog run by me, Kara Guppy, and is named as such thanks to my daughter Eliza who always asks that very question when we are less than 5 minutes up the road heading off on our adventures. You may know me from my other family blog chelseamamma.co.uk
