Shadows in the Woods


This post is sponsored by Dragonfly Toys

Shadows in the Woods is a magical board game of hide and seek. The woods are created using jigsaw type board pieces and wooden trees.

One player lights the candle to place on a circle on the board. Then they cover their eyes while little gnomes are hidden in the nooks of wooden trees by the other players.


The dice is rolled and the candle is carefully pushed along the path.

If the light from the candle reaches a gnome it is frozen in place. While those gnomes hiding in the shadows remain safe.


Each turn, the players have a chance to hide their gnomes anew. They can also place their gnomes near a frozen gnome to bring it back into the game.

This is a magical game to play in the near dark, allowing the candlelight to seek the gnomes.


Max is all about board games at the moment. He loves them! And Shadows in the Woods has become a firm favourite.

It is perfect for dark Winter nights, or any night where the room can be darkened nicely.


Our only challenge is getting Teddy to stop blowing out the beautiful Queen B candles!

    I have my eye on the Create section – you can never go wrong with high quality pencils, crayons and a good colouring in book. Oh and a Story CD would go lovely with some quiet craft time. I am already “blissing out” with a nice herbal tea just with the thought of it.

    My two kids would love a De Noest lamp or shadow puppets, my son loves to create his own stories

    I would love some wool felt and the marble mouse game. The cutlery play set also looks wonderful, oh heck it all looks great. How do you choose!

    My Eldest is really interested in whittling and he’s been struggling with my old and very blunt swiss army knife, so I will be buying him one of the Dragonfly Toys’ whittling knives. We are also in need of more pencils which would be good for the Christmas stockings! 🙂

    That looks amazing.
    Followed them and just checked out their products. So many gorgeous things.
    My little girl is right into her tea parties at the moment, she would absolutely adore the honeybee cake stand for her Xmas gift. It would get a workout in our home 🙂

    Oh my goodness, I love the concept of this game – something so totally different to what is out there now and I know my twins would love the intrigue and shadows! I have wanted a couple of Dragonfly Dolls and some of those sweet outfits for quite a while now so those would be my fav pick for sure!

    So many gorgeous toys and activities! Bob’s bridge game looks fun, and I know my baby boy who is about to turn one would love the retro wooden cars!

    Sounds like a great game! We love Dragonfly Toys, we are looking at the tin tea set in wicker basket for my 18 month old who loves playing tea parties ?

    Oh this looks beautiful!

    I’d buy the bird call
    for my daughter and I,
    Then we’d just have to
    learn to fly!
