Each ingredient must go into the pot, but hidden magnetic areas in the board may trip you, causing your ingredients to go flying!
Don't stumble, or the potion will be ruined. Who can make the potion the fastest?
This engaging game's 3-D design and magical concept appeal to kids, and it's more challenging than it looks. The theme: A magician's young apprentices are learning to concoct potions and must carefully toss ingredients (wooden balls) into the cauldron; players must guide the apprentices to the pot using magic wands and tip the balls into the pot.
The catch: the bottoms of the apprentice pieces are magnetized, and metal balls randomly hidden beneath the game board create stumbling points to trip up the apprentices.
Components: 4 magic cauldrons, 1 fireplace, 4 wooden magicians, 4 wands, 16 wooden potion balls, 1 fireball, 1 game board with 12 built-in magnetic balls. Dimensions: 2.75 x 11.625 x 11.625 inches. For ages 5 and older. No reading necessary.
Why Our Experts Love It
With all the Harry Potter and wizardry today, we had to get this great game.
Players deal with the challenge of tipping the balls into the pot without sending the balls flying (which kids find hilarious).
More than fun, Magician's Kitchen is great for practicing dexterity and eye-hand coordination.
