Orangutwang
$19.99; 4+
PlayMonster.com
Orangutwang is a super cool game with its two tall palm trees connected by a string, the colorful and quirky toucan lever, the bright playing pieces shaped like fruit or critters, and the giant, amused orangutan that hangs from the string. Roll the dice to find out which play piece you get to hang on the orangutan (banana, pineapple, gecko, fruit bat or coconut). Be careful how you hang it…at some point it will be too much for the orangutan and he’ll leap and swing and go twaaaannng!

Heads Talk Tails Walk
$14.99; 3+
ThinkFun.com
Can you hop like a frog while clucking like a chicken? Players try to match hidden head tiles to the correct body tiles. If the head and body don’t match, the real fun begins. Players walk and talk like the mismatched tiles—with hilarious results.

Harry Potter Labyrinth 
$24.99, 8+

Harry, Ron and Hermione, Professor Dumbledore, Hagrid and Harry's owl Hedwig are all waiting for you to find them. If you move the labyrinth around cleverly, you'll surely discover new paths that were once dead-ends. Keep making new paths to find the characters you need to collect.

 

OK2Win 3UP 3DOWN Spread on wood HR

3UP 3Down
$9.99; 7+
Ok2win.com
To win each round, a player must get rid of his cards before family and friends can. But, the “3Down” cards keep everyone guessing, as these cards are not revealed until the very end. Players need both strategy and luck.
