What is it
Sarah and Duck are having a sleepover and guess what… you’re invited! So pull on your PJs and join in an evening of fun and imaginative games before creating your very own Sarah & Duck dream.
There are six fun activities:
Same Bread – It’s a Match! Everyone’s playing a game of Same Bread. Flamingo is very good and very competitive! Can you be the first to spot two breads that are the same? Keep your eyes on those cards and remember, first to 5 wins.
Dance Mat – Let’s teach Sarah some groovy dance moves! Jon and Flamingo have brought their dance mat for everyone to play on. Uh oh, Sarah’s a bit wobbly on her feet. Maybe you can show her how it’s done?
Toy Tidy – All aboard the Tidy Up Train! It’s time to clear away all the toys before bed, but thankfully Sarah’s got a quirky idea to make tidying up much more fun. Help Sarah complete the track so that Duck can steer the Tidy Up Train and collect all those toys.
Star Symphony – This will change Sarah’s tune! She’s busy having a peek through her telescope. Oh look, there’s Moon, Venus and Mars and they want to play. Tap the planets to make some music, then watch the dozing donkey light up as he hears your lovely tune.
Teeth Clean – Let’s get brushing! Everyone is finally ready for bed, but not until everyone’s teeth (and beaks!) are nice and clean. Grab the toothbrush and clean those molars and beaks until they sparkle.
Dreaming – Sweet Dreams! Everyone has nodded off, but I wonder what they’re dreaming about? You get to decide by selecting from a collection of wacky and wonderful Sarah & Duck locations, objects and characters where you can create unique dreamy worlds. Watch closely as your quirky and flappy scene comes to life.

What our experts think
Children enjoyed trying out the different games – they really liked brushing the character’s teeth, which helps children learn about self-care. The tidy up game helps children practise logical thinking by putting the tracks in the correct place.
We like how the games are laid out as a story, as this encourages children to try out lots of different games. The ‘snap!’ card game has a two-player option allowing children to play in a pair and develop social skills.
There is a friendly and engaging narrator who guides children through the story and games, prompting them when they get stuck.
It would be even better if...
Children might need some help when setting up their profile at the beginning, as they had trouble finding the correct letters. Some of the games (particularly the ‘snap’ style game) were tricky for children to understand so may need an adult to guide them through playing at first.
