NBC News features Memory & Matching Game by eeBoo

Congratulations to eeBoo for being included in the NBC News board game roundup for kids, 12 best board games for kids in 2021.

Classic board games for kids are great, but there’s a lot to comb through. We’ve rounded up some of the best board games to keep your little ones entertained and engaged.

Board games can be a great way to get the family together and encourage kids to take a break from phone, television and video game screens. While a number of adult board games on the market are fun options for parties or casual get-togethers, many board games aimed at kids can also entertain both the little ones and the adults on family game nights — and they can definitely include the strategy, challenge and interactivity that traditionally make board games exciting.

While several standout tabletop games were launched in the past year for kids between the ages of 3 and 12, classics like Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders are also top contenders for beginners and early gamers. To save you time shopping the endless sea of kids board games online, we’ve compiled a few of the best ones based on high ratings and our past coverage that’ll keep your little ones engaged and entertained.
