Teamwork for Tots

Here at Jaques, we’re a family run business who keeps families, like yours, at the heart of what we do. That’s why building collaborative skills from a young age is so important.

Working with others is what makes the world go round and you can build these skills in your little ones through teamwork games.

Just like in Moby Dick, your children can tackle the high seas without Magnetic Fishing Game. This is really great for building social skills and collaborative play.

Whale of a Tale

Published in 1851, as the classic novel ‘Moby Dick’ hit shelves, Jaques of London were busy introducing the game of croquet to England - so it was all-round a momentous year!

The novel is based on one man’s quest to conquer a gigantic Sperm Whale, whom the novel is named after.

This whale of a tale is why we’re so excited about our children’s Magnetic Fishing Game - it’s reel fun and little ones will fall for it hook, line and sinker!

DID YOU KNOW: An extinct species of Sperm whale is named in honour of the author, Melville.
