When I was asked to review a couple of kids games I thought- great, how easy will that be- there’s no way the little ones can complain about playing a game- I was right!
GAME 1: Pop Goes Froggio (3+)
Pop goes Froggio is an active game where the children are encouraged to test their memory skills. Spinning the wheel and attempting to turn over the corresponding picture on the correct lilly pad they can reward themselves for finding the correct picture by stamping triumphantly on the lilly launch pad and sending Froggio flying!
I asked Molly (6) and her sister Lilly (3) to tell me what they thought- Molly wrote the review!
Did you like the look of the box?
yes, it looked interesting
Was it easy to understand – Did you need any adult help?
Quite easy, a little help needed. Lilly needed my help.
How long did it hold your attention?
We played it twice and didn’t get bored!
Did anything break?
Were there any small parts that would be dangerous for a baby?
What was the best bit?
JUMPING ON THE PUMP!
It costs 14.99 Molly- would you buy it?
Do you think you will play again?
Pop Goes Froggio got the thumbs up from Molly and Lilly then!
MUM SAID: Really good fun, simple game that keeps the kids active and entertained. Once familiar with it the kids could easily play this on their own without help and enjoy it just as much which is always a bonus!
GAME 2: Monkey Dunk (4+)
Monkey Dunk is the creative game that sees kids flicking little monkeys into “swimming holes”.
Molly agreed (though job) to review this game too.
She liked the look of the game, lots of colours and component parts that lead to a very simple game- flicking monkeys into little pots and getting “bananas” for successfully getting the monkeys on target. Elefun (an elephant that gets pushed down at the start of the round and pops up when the round is out of time) adds to the fraught but fun nature of the game. The period of monkey flicking is fairly crazy with monkeys flying everywhere but it is all very good fun for the kids.
The only downside that we could see was that it was quite challenging getting the monkeys on target- Molly was quick to point out that Sam her 4 year old nephew would have struggled!
All in all great games that the kids really enjoy playing!
