Description

It’s one that brims with echoes. Beware of what you wish for. Don’t cry wolf. The golem servant-menace of Jewish folklore. And poor Victor Frankenstein, in Mary Shelley’s novel, rushing out in “breathless horror and disgust” after seeing “the dull yellow eye of the creature open”. Memory can be varied to suit different ages and abilities; for younger children use fewer cards, but you’ll be surprised at just how good children are at this game. They make a great birthday gift or smashing Christmas gift

Just as he is anatomically constructed by the mouse from disparate elements, like some hellish wishlist for a genetically modified organism, the Gruffalo’s mythic components are similarly eclectic. To start with, he’s not summoned by grave-robber necro-medicine, but by incantation: His first big mistake is to delay gratification. He’s more curious to see whether the mouse really is, as it claims, “the scariest creature in this wood”, than in turning him into fast fingerfood. Opening himself up to the rodent’s ruse gives the Gruffalo likeability. Just as we might have wanted to tell the mouse not to tempt the evil eye by summoning the Gruffalo, now we might wish to tell the Gruffalo not to be taken in by the mouse.If the postman/woman is unable to deliver the goods to you, they will leave a card through your door and re-attempt delivery the following day. If they are still unable to deliver then the parcel will be returned to their local depot and a note will be left with you advising you of the options available to you. Dobble has its very own Gruffalo variant! This popular matching game from Asmodee meets the phenomenon of Julia Donaldson’s best-selling children’s book. Can you match the likes of the Gruffalo, the mouse, the snake and co in the Dobble: Gruffalo? He enacts, too, in his lurid comedy skin, the infantile fantasy of omnipotence. The mouse dreams a world, and lo, it is so. As the doppelganger-mouse-Gruffalo, the mouse is invulnerable, provided he can survive his own creation. What child, when feeling alone and very little, wouldn’t want some of that invincibility? We are in magic-land; the mouse is tempting the evil eye. He could be saying Candyman in front of the mirror or dreaming A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger – the nightmare terrifyingly made flesh. The great thing about Dobble is it takes a mere 20 seconds to teach. While there might not be any strategy involved, it will still have you and your family in fits of giggles. Especially when your hand-eye observation skills fail you!

So the Gruffalo becomes a hulking menace, a malevolent Jungian shadow-self, as it follows the mouse through its second encounters with Fox, Owl, and Snake. These killers, unbeknown to the Gruffalo, whose eyes fix hypnotically on the mouse, scarper when they see him. Thus the Gruffalo, once materialised, saves the mouse a second time. All superbeings, from Ninja Turtles to X-Men and Terminators, protect because they can destroy. Happily for the mouse, the Gruffalo, like the conventional superheroes, is flawed.

It features a unique and unsurpassed monster: what you imagine can kill you. It’s bizarre to think he’s only been around since 1999, so culturally embedded is he now.Perfect toys for your child - Games for kids of every age help support a child’s development as they play, building skills such as concentration and creativity
