My Review:
If you have older children in your home, I can't wait to tell you all about the games above. The Game of Life, Monopoly and Scrabble will enhance you family game nights if you are already doing them, or help you start a new tradition! Each game teaches great concepts like counting, math, spelling, turn-taking and more! 
Although my girls are too young to really enjoy these games, I know I can't wait to play these with them one day. All three are games that I grew up playing and I am excited that my love of board games are rubbing off on both my girls. 
I highly recommend all three of the above games and give them all a big thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can purchase Monopoly, The Game of Life and Scrabble at your favorite toy retailer
