A scratch and sniff version of Linkee is in the pipeline for pre-schoolers.

The game, which will not land on shelves until 2015, will see children make connections using only their nose.

“We’ve got an idea for a pre-school Linkee, it’s called Stinkee Linkee,” inventor Tris Williams told ToyNews.

“It’s a scratch and sniff version where you guess from the smell what the thing is. You can have fun with that.

“We think it would be cool for three, four, five year olds. It probably won’t be released this year because we’ve taken on quite a few things this year with Dinkee Linkee and another game which is a spin-off of Linkee, and we have our app which we are launching internationally."

Dinkee Linkee is for kids aged between eight and 12 and the game will see schools set up clubs to submit card suggestions.

“Kids love Linkee but it’s a little bit too hard for them,” added Williams.

“So we’ve been working with schools and they’ve been setting up some clubs with kids; they play the game, write some cards and they get their name and their school on the card. We send them a free game to say thanks.

“The plan is that this September we’ll soft launch Dinkee Linkee at gift fairs.”
