Santa’s Sleigh Dash!




In this fabulously fun festive game, you must guide Santa to collect presents and then successfully deliver them down the chimneys.

Watch out for monsters in your path though, they’ll bring your sleigh ride to an abrupt halt!

NEW!! There are now 4 versions of our Santa’s Sleigh Dash game:

Santa’s Sleigh Dash The Original – great for developing concentration, coordination and for boosting self confidence!

Santa’s Sleigh Dash Words – match the presents you collect to the word descriptions on the chimneys for delivery.

Santa’s Sleigh Dash Mental maths – presents have numerical values, to deliver them you must choose which present solves the chimney’s equation.

Santa’s Sleigh Dash Colours and Shapes – presents come in all shapes and colours but make sure you deliver them to the right house!

Suitable for ages 3-11, in each version of the game you can change the activity settings dependent on the ability of your child. 

Take a sleigh ride!
