Age: 2 years plus

What it is: A super-huge version of classic draughts – a much simpler version of chess, basically.

Why we love it: The size makes it a bit of a showstopper! The pieces are sturdy and the mat is waterproof so if you’re happy to splash out initially we reckon this is one you’ll get out and use over and over again.
