“ Manufacturer: Disney „
I bought this game for my then five year old daughter for one of her presents last Christmas. I love to be well stocked up on board games during the Christmas holidays - for both the adults and the kids. it is not just the traditionalist in me, I think they are a great way for the kids to get together and play without having to share their brand new and rather possessively owned new Christmas toys.
This cost me at the time £15 which certainly isn't cheap although I think there are some stores at the moment who are doing good deals.
Here is my experience:
This is a new fangle dangle 'electronic' board game (we didn't have these things in my day!) which is a very easy concept of the winnie the pooh in the centre of this tree stump rotating around (battery powered, switched on by gently pressing Winnie's head) with a clear perspex rod attached to him with a bee at the end of it (sounds rude now I type it out!).
There are 4 'hunnypots' which have a button below them which when pressed make the hunnypot jump in the air and (hopefully) over the oncoming bee. (Think Total wipeout when they jumped the oncoming bar to land back on their podiums).
The perpex rod with the bee attached moves very fast changing direction all the time. The idea of the game is the winner is the one who has managed to keep their hunnypot intact and still on their part of the tree stump for five rounds!
It is as far as I am concerned impossible, I can't do it, none of the children or adults could do it so rather than rubbish it altogether because it is fun, fast and very pretty to look at I adapted it to 'How many times can you jump over the bee and land on your treestump per round?' Whoever jumped successfully (rather than miss and land on the floor) the most per round wins that round and go for as many rounds as you wish to find your overall winner.
I enjoyed this game, it is fast paced and challenging for children although my three year old nephew temporarily broke it by trying to turn Winnie around manually (so he was obviously too young for it) and many of the male members found this 'too girly'!?
The game recommends 3 plus, I think it is more suited to 4-7 yr olds. It is very easy to slot together out of the box and if you can get it for the bargain of under £10 I think it is a very nice game to add to your collection for rainy days!
