What are some good board or card games your kids around 4 love?
So far I know DD likes Monopoly Junior Party and UNO, but I would like to get some more.
Alos maybe some stimulating ones, but I dont know what ones are good.
Also, aside from Target, Kmart, Big W and Toys R Us, can I get them anywhere?
I am in West Syd if that helps with the location part lol
If you have some that have been outgrown, I will happily buy them and pay postage if need be :-)

Snap and dominoes (kids version) are favs of DD4.
Bought a monkey equivalent of kerplunk from Target but she hasn't really got into it, still too young I think.

Maybe Snakes and Ladders? Snap? Memory card or tile games?
This may be a tad on the young side but "Go Away Monster" has been popular with DD and family friend toddlers who are 3 and almost 4. DH read about it on boardgamegeek.com . He said there's heaps of reviews and threads by parents who're keen to find good boardgames for their own kids. I think to train them up early
Not sure how to find such threads but here's the write up of this game.

DS has just turned 4 in January. We play monopoly, trouble, guess who, connect 4 and he has just started chequers

My DD loved Candyland at that age. It doesn't have a dice, rather you move to the next coloured space matched to the card picked up.
Chimp and Zee make great board games for that age too. Who is the Princess is a wonderful game.
The SHopping List Game is a good one too. http://www.gamesparadise.com.au/orchard-toys-shopping-list

We got DS2 Dizzy Dizzy Dinosaur for Christmas, he loves it, but then he is a bit of a dinosaur nut so we knew he would lol.
He also has Gator Golf, and we got him Crocodile Dentist for his 4th birthday next month.
We also have Pop Up Pirate, Trouble, and Headbands.

Spot It is great. You can get it at Amazon or try stores like Australian Geographic.

My 4 year old is another fan of The Shopping Game.
She also plays
- Tip It
- My First Guess Who (though I think the original would be better).
- Go Fish

Orchard games do some fantastic ones for this age group. Jelly elephants was a fave here.
