enemies placed around looking to shoot the ball. Moreover, you need to
avoid falling off of the platform as well. This aids your child’s quick
thinking and they need to have a solid strategy to make it to the end.

  1. Scooby Doo: Creepy Castle
In
this game your little one will get to play Scooby Doo and they will

trying to find the gang your little one will have to pick up objects
e.g. a plank of wood, in order to seal a door shut to keep the ghosts
out. This improves strategic thinking because your child needs to be
clever when thinking how to use the objects they pick up by being
effective and efficient.

create a way to Jerry. If one thing is out of place, then the trap won’t
work.
