This really is a game from my childhood and, in my opinion, the most iconic real-life game of the 00s. My sister got this when she was about 14, that would have made me about 8. I remember always wanting to have a go with it and she would generally refuse as she wanted to use it instead. I would then hear "Twist-it", "Flick-it", coming from her room, across the hallway and into my room - this did become a little irritating!
For those of you who haven't seen or played with this device. The concept to the game is simple; hold the device at the handles with each of your hands. When the voice tells you to either "Flick it", "Twist it", "Spin it", "Pull it" or, you guessed it, "bop-it", you must do the appropriate action to one of the five input devices on the toy. The aim of the game si to get the highest amount of consecutive correct actions within a reasonable time - you have a couple of seconds to perform each action but this time decreases as you progress). The concept sounds very simple, and it really is, however it does not get boring because of it. If you have another person with you, you will be ever trying to beat their high score but even alone, you can easily entertain yourself for an hour or two with this device!
For those of your wondering, I think my best score was something like 70. However, for an 8 year old, this was pretty good going!
This game is suitable for those of any age to play with safely but Hasbro recommends ages 4 and over due to those younger not necessarily being able to use it correctly. Everything about the device feels high quality, the plastic casing seemed thick and didn't bend at all in your hands and all of the inputs seemed to be attached perfectly, giving a nice, smooth, natural motion.
The game was powered by standard batteries which, once installed, I do not think ever ran out for the time we used it, meaning it was very efficient. This was most likely thanks to the auto-off function the device had; if left unused fro a couple of minutes the device would "sleep", it would "wake up" again whenever the Bop-It button was pressed.
I believe this game once cost £15 but I am not too sure that it can be bought brand new anywhere now. There are newer variations on this classic Bop-It game though, including a revised version of this model and variations on the game itself.
