Monopoly Games for Children Under 8

by thewahwife

Monopoly is one of the most popular board games of all time. Unfortunately, most games are recommended for those over the age of 8.

The majority of Monopoly games are best suited for players 8 years of age and up. However, there are a few editions available for children aged 5 to 8. These games are not only a perfect way to spend some quality family time, they also help younger children practice their math skills through fun and play.

Monopoly Junior Edition

Monopoly Junior Edition puts a childhood spin on the classic game. Rather than buying up real estate, players collect tickets for amusement park rides and games. Rather than passing go or landing in jail, players may get a chance to see the fireworks or have to pay for a tramway ride to the restroom.

Monopoly Junior Disney Channel Edition

Monopoly Junior Disney Channel Edition includes player tokens in characters from Hannah Montana, Phineas & Ferb, Jump In, The Cheetah Girls, Return to Halloween Town and more. Players work towards setting up as many television sets as possible and collect money from other players when they stop and visit. Watch out for Ms. Darbus and Dr. Drakken! Land on them and you’ll need to pay up. 

Monopoly Junior Disney Princess

Monopoly Junior Disney Princess enlists the ever-popular princess characters from Disney movies: Ariel, Pocahontas, Snow White, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Sleeping Beauty, and Mulan. Ride the Magic Carpet or Magic Coach around the game purchasing properties like Genie, Flounder, John Smith, and Prince Charming. Penalty spaces in this edition are Maleficent and Ursula. 


Fairy-opoly is another Monopoly option for the little girl in your life. There is magic in imagination, and that is the goal of this game. Players collect fairy friends, give them wings and acquire acorns as other players land on their properties. Players can advance to Twinkle by sprinkling pretend fairy dust.

Monopoly Junior Toy Story

Monopoly Junior Toy Story allows players to step into the shoes of Jessie, Woody, Mr. Potato Head or Buzz. Use your allowance to buy up toy friends. You have to pay to play with other players’ toy friends. But, don’t worry. They will have to pay you to play with those toy friends you have purchased.

As you can see, there are several versions available to get your young child learning math and strategy with Monopoly.
