New York City Toys, Puzzles, and Games


New York City has to be one of the greatest places in America, if not the world. Luckily for us, many authors have chronicled The Big Apple's antics in a way just right for kids.

Here are some of the books available. This is not yet a complete list, but I'm adding books to the list daily. If you wish to purchase any of these books, click on either the title or the book cover to be directed to Amazon.com. As a warning, I have put up pictures of the book covers to give you somewhat an idea of the style of each book (I know, I know. "Don't judge a book by its cover") so the pages may load slowly, depending on the speed of your internet connection.

The categories below are sorted by approximate age group and topical categories. Feel free to browse around. The same links are located on the left side of your screen. To return back to this page, simply click on the "Welcome" link on the left.

New York Chase

By Ravensburger
One player, Mr. X, is on the run from all other players, using taxi, bus and subway in New York. Detectives work together using helicopters and roadblocks in an attempt to corner him.

Product Description from Manufacturer


Mr. X, a familiar villain to fans of Ravensburger's Scotland Yard game, is up to his dastardly escapades in New York. This time it's NYPD detectives who are trying to apprehend the menace. This clever game of cat and mouse uses a beautiful map of New York City as its playing board. One player takes on the role of Mr. X (pick someone with nerves of steel!), while two to five others act as detectives. The sleuths must use teamwork try to guess the position of and capture the crafty escape artist, who has the advantage of secretly moving around. The game ends after 22 rounds, which together take about 45 minutes. Pieces include chips, map board, tickets for public transportation (the only way players can move), and a nifty black visor for Mr. X so other players can't see him tracking his maneuvers around the board.
