Can you guess the most popular posts from 2021? Here’s a hint: while they may not match 2020’s results exactly, readers clearly had similar things on their minds in 2021. Games took four of the top five spots over the last twelve months in yet another roller coaster year, where anything could happen. A car seat solution that goes from birth to booster rounds out the top five posts from 2021, with a special mention going to the ever popular and versatile Hemnes daybed. Listed in descending order of popularity, here are the top six posts from the last year:
Battleship Shots: It’s no contest in 2021. Battleship Shots took first place in our list of rankings. With its fast-paced play that levels the playing field, it makes this spin on the classic perfect for all ages. Players take turns bouncing or throwing ping pong type balls to try and sink their opponent’s ships. The first player to sink all the opposing ships wins.
Clue Junior: Moving down into the number two spot this year, Clue Junior remains a perennial favorite with readers. Players take turns moving any one of the brightly colored pawns around the board to collect clues. The first player to correctly guess who ate the cake, with what drink, and at what time, wins. Easy to use picture clue sheets make it simple for kids of all ages to play together.
Diono Radian 3RXT Car Seat: This car seat does it all. From a rear-facing seat suitable for infants to a belt-positioning booster for older kids, the Diono Radian 3RXT goes the distance. The adjustable headrest gets you several more months (if not years) out of the five-point harness. And the narrow frame means you can fit this seat in a three across configuration, even between other convertible car seats and boosters. It also folds flat for easy storage and transportation, while still offering top notch protection in case of an accident.
Four Games in One Box: Even though it has gotten harder to find this set of games geared towards the smallest players, this box packs a lot of fun. None of the games require any literacy skills, making them perfect for the littlest kids. And they help practice concepts such as colors and shapes, all while having fun. Choose from four games which increase in difficulty level. All the pieces for each game fit neatly into one box.
Football Peg Game: The only other repeat listing from 2020, this tiny game packs a big punch. This peg game simulates the real action on the football field thanks to the luck of the dice. Players take turns rolling dice during their possession, with each combination from two to 12 resulting in a different play. From fumbles to touchdowns, kids get all the excitement of the big game year round, in a format they can easily understand. With its compact size, zero screens, and no batteries required, we understand why this game made the rankings for the second year in a row.
Hemnes Daybed: One daybed to rule them all, this magical piece of furniture goes from a twin-sized bed that doubles as a couch, to king-sized comfort. A simple trundle transforms this bed from one size to the other, with the extra mattress stacking on top when not in use. Even better, it includes three drawers built into the frame. They hold extra bedding, toys, or clothes with ease, all within reach of little hands.
