They said it couldn't be done, they said it shouldn't be done, but we went ahead and did it anyway.

Plop Trumps logo Isn't that what all heroes do. Brought to you from the whirrings of an 11 year old mind, it's not Top Trumps, it's Plop Trumps, buy them on dadcando, this is our first real you-got-to-buy-it product. Already reviewed as "the freshest thing to come out of the Top Trumps genre", and "the coolest kids thing in the history of the world ever..." Plop Trumps logowe don't think there's anyone who doesn't secretly (or openly) find this fascinating. As well as some very scientific pictures specially taken for dadcando and some great vital statistics, each card has a very educational and interesting factoid on it. For example, did you know that a single locust can eat its own weight in food per day, and as the average swarm covers 100 square kilometres and is made up of tens of billions of locusts, together a swarm can eat 70,000 tonnes of food each day. You wouldn't want to see one of those coming if you were just about to harvest your crops! Enormous fun to play, huge kudos to own, get your here.

I've just recieved my set of Plop Trumps (which are great by the way) but wanted to say what a fantastic service! Ordered on Saturday, received on Monday, best price available (inc. postage) what more could you ask for. Excellent. Thank you very much.

Clare says:
Dear Chris,
I think my four nephews (aged 4 -9) are the one who are really going to love these – I might just be about to become the coolest Aunt – thanks!
By the way I saw these in the Saturday Telegraph top 50 presents list.
Regards, Clare.

Jen says:
heh heh...Plop Trumps...brilliant! My godson will love them! Thanks for the quick dispatch, saw them advertised in the Saturday Telegraph by the way. Cheers, Jen.

Jim says:
Many thanks Chris, the Plop Trumps arrived on Saturday!; well impressed with the speed of dispatch! - though I'll need to wait until Christmas to see how good the game is. Many thanks.

Jessica says:
Just wanted to let you know that the boys (all 3) just love your plop trumps. We were going to save them for a Christmas gift, but couldn't wait to get them open and to play the game. They all love them. I find them just sitting reading through all the info - and then we get little chunks of info at later times .... like when we are in the middle of eating ...!!

Well done on producing such a beautiful set of cards, such interesting facts, and making it all such fun.

Thank you!!

Monique says:
Great game thanks for the quick delivery, my grandson loves them, they are at the moment been played with by a coach load of kids on the way to Switzerland.
Thanks once again.

Marlski says:
Hi Chris, These cards are great!! saw them advertised in a copy of bizarre mag and thought I have to have a pack for my nipper! lightning speed next day delivery and easy to pay for on pal pal - couldn't ask for more! thank you.

Andrew says:
Hi Chris, I received the cards the very next day - thanks for the speedy service!I ordered 4 packs; one for myself, one for my partner's sister who is a conservationist, one for my 11 year old daughter and one for my friend who has an unsettling fascination with poo. They all LOVED the cards, and have been showing them to all their friends and colleagues, so they really have been a big hit all round. Well done for making such a fun product and for the whole Dad Can Do concept. I wish you every success with it all.

Denise says:
Dear Chris, Just wanted to thank you for the fast delivery time - the cards arrived within a day! Also the present was greatly received and has given us a good few hours of laughs... very creative product! Thanks again.

Darren says:
These arrived on Friday-they are brilliant, cant wait to take them to the pub-I’ll be spreading the word! Cheers

Rebbecca says:
Hi Chris, Thank you! I saw your product article in the Metro and what made me smile more than anything was reading about someone who participates and gets involved. There are too many people having great ideas and doing nothing about it. I look forward to visiting your site regularly.
Ploppy Regards
PS My 30 year old boyfriend is going to love plop trumps... poo and animals two of his favourite subjects.

Adrian says:
Thanks Chris. My little girl is delighted with the purchase although I have to confess my wife has been less than enthusiastic ;o)

Dave says:
I have to say it brightened my day up when I saw the article on the cards this morning. I'm not a single Dad so my wife will no doubt apply a woman's sense of humour to the cards... but all 3 of my kids, who are still in the "talking about poo is funny" stage, will think the game is just brilliant.

Richard says:
Thanks Chris, for my daughters birthday, she will think they are great, much appreciate the effort.

Clare says:
Hi Chris, I saw the article in the Metro and wanted to get some for my friend in Canada so I'm going to send them to him, he has an unnatural interest in poo so these are perfect! Your son was totally right, Plop Trumps are wicked!

Senam says:
Many thanks for sending the cards out so quickly, received them today! Read the article in the Metro newspaper about them the other day and thought it was a brilliant idea! Sure my brother will have hours of fun with them! Hope sales go well and thanks again.

Playing & doing stuff
Playing games is a very important part of being a child. Through game playing children learn about strategy, the joy of winning, how to cope with losing, negotiation techniques and how to notice and understand a whole range of social cues, all of which will significantly improve the way they get along with people as they grow up. Playing games also develops the imagination. When kids play a game together they build a whole story round their game, each person has a character, a purpose and motives, all playing out their parts in the rich landscape of their imaginations.

research has shown that degree and quality of playtime a child has with its father is a vital factor in determining the growing child’s sense of self-worth and confidence

Almost anything you do with your kids can and should be partly game (think of Mary Poppins finding fun in every chore), but it is important to set time aside for your kids when you are just playing with them for the sake of playing, rather than instructing them or caring for them. When you play together you enter their world and understand so much more about them and how they think, and you give them your undivided attention, some of the highest quality time your child can get. Scientific research studies have repeatedly shown that the degree and quality of playtime a child has with its father is a vital factor in determining the growing child’s sense of self-worth and confidence.

Having your children's friends round for tea

You don’t need to wait for a special occasion party to organise some games or activities. Having friends over for tea or the afternoon at the weekend is an important part of your children’s social life. They won’t need much encouragement to invite their friends over to your house. They’ll be proud to show off their other home and proud to show off their dad and the fun things that you do together. At times like these it is good to have a few games or Doing Activities ready to go, instead of letting them play on the games console all afternoon. You could plan to do one of the Making projects, (there are some that only need a piece of paper) or you could try out one of the party games in this section as an activity. You’ll find some great games in the Children’s Parties page like the Egyptian Mummy game or the Treasure Hunt, either of which are perfect for when your kid has his or her friends over for tea.

Or maybe it's just time to put your feet up and relax together

When you’re all done and you all just want to put your feet up and cuddle up on the sofa, then watching a great film with your kids or reading a lovely story to them is a wonderful way to spend time together. We hope you'll find find our weekly review of films and books useful in finding a good film or book to curl up with.
