Paddington Spot The Difference & Colour On | Review


We were sent these Paddington games for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Paddington is heading back to cinema screens on November 10th and you may have noticed plenty of Paddington products being released in preparation for the film’s release. A sequel to the 2014 film starring fantastic actors such as Hugh Bonneville, Ben Whishaw, Julie Walters and Sally Hawkins, we can’t wait for the sequel to come out and will definitely be heading to the cinemas to see it!

We were recently sent some brand new Paddington games to review – Spot The Difference and Colour On. So what did we think of them?

First of all, let’s talk about Spot The Difference. This is a fantastic new take on the traditional game. Players can follow Paddington’s adventures through two seemingly identical images. There are over 80 different spot the difference scenes – 40 cards with images on either side. You need to find the differences and beat your opponent. Each game has either 5 or 10 differences which are handily marked out on the card.

The game comes with dry erase markers and easy wipe scenes. The game is for ages 8+ and is £7.99, available from John Lewis.

As you can see above, there are plenty of different cards to choose from and children can opt between five or ten differences. The puzzles can be quite easy, can be quite hard – I sometimes even struggled to find the differences when Jack asked me to help him. The makers do claim that this is for ages 8+ but Jack is 5 and really enjoyed this – spending ages doing different cards and then wiping them clean when done. This is a handy game for travelling – we will definitely be taking this with us on future holidays as it keeps children occupied and is easy to store. We would definitely recommend.

The Colour On game is also £7.99 and available for purchase at John Lewis. This is perfect for hours of colouring and activity fun. There is three metres of colouring scenes and activities and the easy twist dial makes it easy to find an activity or colouring scene your child wants to complete. It can then easily be twisted back to put the game away.

Paddington Paddington Paddington PaddingtonJack really loved this Colour On game. He loves colouring and loves puzzles and activities so is quite happy to sit down for ages and get colouring. For instance, this activity asks the player to find ten teapots that are hidden in the picture and then colour it in. Jack found the teapots then got to work with the colouring, taking his time to choose his colours just right.

This is just the first activity available in the tube, there are plenty more to be discovered by just using the easy twist dial to unroll and roll back. Jack has had great fun finding the activities or colouring scenes he is most interested in and it is something that I know would occupy him for hours on end if he wanted it to. He’s always wanting to colour in so this is a handy game to have in our household. This product is also available to purchase on Amazon here {affiliate link}.

  1. We’re really looking forward to the new Paddington film, we loved the first one. Many fits of giggles. My son loves things like spot the difference, so this is a fab idea. I like that you can mark them and wipe them off. Something I’d consider buying to put aside for a stocking filler.

  2. I loved Paddington as a child and im so happy he is coming back. The colouring roll will be a massive hit in my house and I love the way a number of children can colour at the same time 🙂 saves fights in my house ha x
