Manager’s Special

This month, we are delighted to have added to our range of Smart Games with some new titles.

These clever logic and thinking games take children into a new world of puzzles where trial and error are all required to find the solution and move to the next level. There clever travel sized games with 60 levels are just right for a quiet afternoon of pondering and we know that the parents love to play as well.

This month, we are giving a 20% discount on all the games in the £14.99 range.

Just visit the Canterbury shop and say ‘SMART’ and we will give you the discount when you sign up to our free monthly newsletter. Enjoy!
