Pop Goes Froggio is a childrens game made by Hasbro. I brought it for my then 4 year old as a last minute Christmas present. The age recommendation is 3+ years and it is suitable for 3-4 players. The game comes packaged in a colourful cardboard box with an eye-catching picture of a happy looking frog jumping from a lily pad.
** CONTENTS **
The game consists of a butterfly spinner unit with plastic tube, foam frog, lily pad launcher and 12 character lily pad cards. Instructions are also included.
** SETTING UP **
The game is very easy to set up - just plug the plastic rube in to the lily pad launcher, place the game on the floor (in the centre of the room), place all of the character lily pads around the room (character side face down).
** HOW TO PLAY **
One player spins the butterfly spinner whilst the other players watch. When the spinner stops on one of the characters, all players should look for the matching character by turning over the lily pads around the room. If any player finds the matching character, they must drop the lily pad on the floor (face up), run back to Froggio, stomp on the lily pad launcher and catch Froggio. If the player catches Froggio, they keep the character lily pad. If the player doesn't catch Froggio, the character lily pad gets put back face down and the next player spins the butterfly spinner. The game ends when all of the lily pads have been collected and the winner is the player that has the most lily pads.
** OVERALL **
My daughter really enjoys this game and regularly gets it out to play it with me. It's an enjoyable family game which requires memory as well as physical aspects, with simple rules that should be easy for all little ones to grasp. Each game usually lasts us around 10-15 minutes and my daughter never gets distracted. I like the fact that everybody plays at once, so nobody gets bored. The game can also be adapted to make it easier and shorter if you wish - either place the character lily pads face up or allow players to pick Froggio up off the floor (if they can't catch him in the air). I would say Pop Goes Froggio would be best enjoyed by 3-6 year olds.
I was worried that my daughter might be too small to stomp on the lily pad launcher hard enough, but she can do it with ease - Froggio goes shooting up in the air and she loves the mad dash to catch him! It's a quick and easy game to set up, plus it requires no batteries and doesn't make any noise - every parents dream!
Pop Goes Froggio can be brought in most toy stores and costs around £10.00. I managed to buy it from Amazon for just £7.00 which I think is brilliant value for money.
Summary: Great game for little ones.
