The Magic Tooth Fairy is a best selling classic children's game from Drumond Park. It is a fun game for 2 - 4 players aged 5+.
On seeing this game I was a little worried that there would be lots of little bits and pieces which could get lost or hoovered up! However when I actually opened the box I was pleased to see that small pieces were kept to a minimum. The box contains:
1 x "Magic" Bed
1 x Tooth Fairy wand
13 x Golden coins
1 x Circular playing board
4 x Mouths with 4 teeth each
4 x Playing pieces
The boys were very excited to play this game, as it is a stage of growing up that lots of their friends are going through (none of them have lost a tooth yet!) I think they found this game that bit more exciting.
The rules of the game are so very easy to follow, once I set it up for the boys and done the first round with them they then managed to play together without me having to interfere which was great. This is a nice calm game that is brilliant for the kids to play especially when its a rainy day or even just for some family time before bed.
The Magic Tooth Fairy Game Rules
OBJECT OF THE GAME
To be the first player to swap the 4 teeth in their "mouth" for 4 golden coins.
PREPARING TO PLAY
Take the Magic Bed and the thirteen gold coins. Slip the thirteen coins, one at a time, into the slot at the top of the bed head.
Each player take a mouth and four teeth. Turn the mouth over and press the "root" of each tooth over the circular lugs behind the lips. Stand the mouth up in front of you.
Unfold the board. Put the Magic Bed in the middle of the playing board. Each player choose a playing piece and place it on the space nearest to you. It can be any space.
PLAYING THE GAME
The youngest player starts. Play moves to the left throughout the game. To play a turn, spin the spinner on the bed and move your playing piece clockwise round the board by the number indicated. Follow the instructions on the space your playing piece lands on.
There are three kinds of playing space on the board: Wobbly Tooth, Go To Bed and Spin Again. They are explained below.
WOBBLY TOOTH SPACE
When you land on this space you find you have a WOBBLY TOOTH. But can you pull it out, or NOT? To decide this you throw the FAIRYDICE.
If you throw the dice and it lands showing apicture with an orange background you DID NOT manage to pull it out and your turn is immediately over.
If you throw the dice and it lands showing a picture with a BLUE background, you DID pull it out. Now take a tooth from your plastic mouth and put it in your Child Playing Piece's backpack. Your turn is now over.
GO TO BED SPACE
If you land on a GO TO BED space and you do not have a tooth in your backpack your turn is immediately over.
If you DO have a tooth in your backpack you must find out if you remembered to put it under your pillow or not. Spin the arrow on the bed to find out.
If it points to 1 you did NOT remember to put your tooth under your pillow and your turn is over.
If it points to 2, 3 or 4 you DID remember! Now lift up the Magic Bed's pillow, put the tooth under it and put the pillow back down again. Push the wand down into the slot as shown then lift up the pillow and take your shiny new golden coin.
SPIN AGAIN SPACE
When you land on this space, spin again and move your playing piece by the number spun. Follow the instructions on this new space.
The first player to swap all of their teeth for gold coins is the winner.
