Colgate Magical Stories

I find reasons to blog and this was perfect way to craft a blog along with the help of the kids. Colgate Magical Stories simply involves space adventure based on kid's imagination. Since I don't have my own kids, I played this game with my nephew. I handed him the characters from the box and created a bedtime story.  Here is a story created by my nephew, Manav and me: After a long training process, Romit and Romila got ready to board the rocket for their first step out of Earth.
