Tomy Pop Up Pirate
Advantages: Good fun
Disadvantages: Swords get lost easily
I had been looking for some games to keep the kids entertained on rainy days and, as my eldest loves everything to do with pirates, I thought this would be fun for him.
The box contains a brown plastic barrel, a pirate and some plastic swords in four different colours. The pirate is put inside the barrel and players take it in turns to slide a sword into the side of it. Eventually one of the swords will trigger the pirate to pop up out of the barrel. One of the good things about this game is that it doesn't need any batteries.
The game is aimed at children from four years old upwards. My four year old likes to play it and is fine doing it on his own. My two year old also enjoys playing the game but needs a little help to slide the swords fully into the barrel. They both squeal with delight when the pirate comes flying out.
As an adult, this game is good fun to play with children. Although the game itself doesn't really make any sound, kids do get quite animated playing it so it can get quite noisy. Each game can last anywhere from a minute to 5 minutes plus so it is good for children with short attention spans. In my house Pop Up Pirate tends to be out for around 20 minutes before the kids lose interest and it is put back in the box.
There isn't really much educational value to this game but it is really good fun.
Summary: A fun game for young children.
