Lion in My Way
Storytelling is the most effortless way to expand your young child’s vocabulary, comprehension, listening skills, and memory. Lion in My Way does that and more by also developing your child’s creative thinking and problem-solving skills.
To begin, select a large path card depicting an obstruction. Then, each player considers how one of the randomly drawn tool cards he has could help him navigate the obstacle and safely arrive home. Will he use a pogo stick to jump over the lion, a rope to scale a wall, or bubbles to distract a troll?
Lion in My Way is optimal as a cooperative game, so children just beginning to tell stories and skilled wordsmiths alike can play without the pressure of competition. As parents, don’t hesitate to use the Lion in My Way stories you tell to reiterate family values, as well as to introduce unfamiliar vocabulary, situations, places, and characters. If you have a tenderhearted child, some obstacles (barbed wire or troll) or tool cards (fireworks) may need to be set aside for a season.
With 25 path cards and 100 tool cards, Lion in My Way is a game that will give your family hours of creative fun. Winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award 2018. For 2-5 players.

”I feel this game does an excellent job in touching on real, practical things in life, while also incorporating silly and imaginative situations for a lighthearted twist.”Read the Review
We love this game! There creativity never ends as our little one comes up with so many unique and fun ways to overcome the obstacles. Sometimes when short in time we just mix the home card right into the deck and call the end of the game when it pops up. We've seen the problem solving and creativity spill over into other areas of life too so it has been a great game in our house.
I like that all the kids but it’s a little redundant after the first couple rounds.
I held off on introducing this game/activity for a couple weeks thinking my son might not enjoy it as much, but to my surprise her really liked it. He had fun thinking about which “tools” he could use to get thru the obstacle.
This game came in our kit for kindergartener and we love it. It really allows for creativity as you come up with different solutions to "get home". This has been a fun game for us to play while learning to critical think.
We have lots of fun with this game as a whole family! Its great knowing its educational and all ages are able to play!
