Tomy Pop Up Pirate
Advantages: children love it
Pop Up Pirate is a fantastic game for young children. I used to play this loads when I was younger and any children I play it with now love the game too.
It is a simple concept to the game but it is a lot of fun.
The pieces included in the game are a barrel, blue base, a pirate and some swords.
The game is all made from plastic and the barrel is a brown colour. It has a textured wood effect and holes where the swords and pirate goes. The pirate goes in the top and there is a piece in the hole that springs up. This must be down at the start of the game. The pirate is easy to place in so children can do it themselves. The barrel should be on the blue sea like base to stop it sliding all over the place when swords are put in.
The swords are in four colours, red, blue, green and yellow. Each player takes a set of colours and places one in at their turn. The swords have nicely detailed handles and are strong so they don't bend or break when pushed into the barrel.
This continues until the pirate pops out. The children love this part and all want them to be the one to pop him out. It is completely random so sometimes he is out in the first few turns and occasionaly he doesn't come out at all.
I have had this game for years and it still looks good as new.
I highly recommend this game, especially for younger children. It's a great game for teaching turn taking.
