Sensational Science, Terrific Technology, Extraordinary Engineering & Peculiar Problems Top List Of STEM Decks
London, UK (March 13, 2018) – What’s in a name? If you are an established British company selling to an American audience, sometimes things get lost in translation. For example, if your brand name is the same as the current U.S. President, retailers may be reluctant to stock your product. Thankfully Top Trumps’ decades-long reputation precedes it as a global card game that kids adore because it’s full of fun facts!
Widely regarded as an engaging, easy-to-play educational tool, Top Trumps moves beyond pop culture themes and puts the focus on STEM. New for 2018 are four decks priced at $7.99 — Sensational Science, Terrific Technology, Extraordinary Engineering and Peculiar Problems. Kids are natural techies and these themed card games show how science and math apply in the “real world.”
Individual card topics mimic the big questions kids ponder beyond the classroom. Technology and engineering is everywhere so kids will delight in learning tidbits about self-driving cars, the Bullet Train or how the moon affects the ocean’s tides. Each colorfully illustrated card boasts facts and figures kids quickly absorb. Parents appreciate that they are learning and retaining facts without even realizing it!
Mom and dad bloggers who have played several hands wholeheartedly agree, as they tell their readers:
Do you ever just want to play a simple game that everyone can enjoy? What if they could learn something in the process, and not even realize they are learning? Bonus, right?! Well, Top Trumps is just that! Kids can read about fun topics, learn new words and facts and even work on their numbers skills. The best part though is the Top Trumps games are extremely portable, meaning you can take them anywhere and everywhere for fun. – Mom and More
Top Trumps games are just becoming available in the United States and if you have children between the ages of 6 and 12 you should absolutely check them out.

Each card in the deck has an eye- catching image on it, along with facts and figures relating to the theme.

Top Trumps Card Sets are such a fun way for kids and adults to learn and play! My daughter, nephew and niece played with these card sets for hours! My niece loved the Shopkins set. My nephew loved the Star Wars set. My daughter loved learning about farm animals and I even learned some fun facts that I didn’t know. The kids spread them out on the floor to look at all of the different cards. They were entertained for hours! These cards help kids with numeracy and literacy. My nephew was practicing reading while he read me some fun facts. – MomFabFun
With dozens of licensed entertainment themes and educational topics, it’s no surprise that the best sellers have the words “Harry Potter” in them as in Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban or Harry Potter And The Order of the Phoenix. What may be truly surprisingly is the author of the Potter Top Trump games. It’s British author JK Rowling herself! She grew up on Top Trumps and contacted the company, hoping to be part of the iconic game.
