Pretty Pretty princess

True story: As a toddler, I often refused to sleep without first hearing a Princess Sierra bedtime story. Hopefully, your kids aren’t quite so stubborn, but if they are demanding to be treated like a true princess, you’re in luck.

Pretty Pretty Princess is back to fulfill all of your princess dreams and needs, this time from Winning Moves Games. The classic ’90s game is making a comeback, offering a new generation of kids the chance to play dress up as they race to the crown — literally. To win, players must be the first to gather a full, color-coordinated set of jewelry — including a necklace, bracelet, ring, and earrings —  plus the tiara.

That’s it; it’s really that easy to become a princess. Players simply take turns spinning a spinner to move along the board, picking up different pieces of jewelry as they go. Beware though: There’s also a black ring in rotation, and players need to avoid that at all costs! If you do get the ill-fated black ring, you can’t win — even if you manage to collect your full set of jewelry. Try to pass it off onto another player ASAP so it doesn’t stand in your way. When you have all of your jewelry — plus the crown — you win!

The game includes enough jewelry for four players, along with a game board, a spinner, plastic game pieces, the black ring, the crown, and a set of illustrated instructions. On top of helping kids realize their dreams of becoming royalty, Pretty Pretty Princess also encourages team play and helps kids foster relationships as they compete to win in this role-playing board game. Kids will also bolster their social and language skills, too.

Take a look at this updated classic in the video below.

Compared to many other games, Pretty Pretty Princess has relatively few pieces, so it could be a good option for travel, Plus, gameplay is pretty quick. I played with two other would-be princesses, and we were finished in less than 20 minutes. It’s just long enough to work toward your goal without getting frustrated and wanting to move on to something else.

What are you waiting for? There’s a kingdom out there just waiting for its next pretty pretty princess!
