Talking about jumping, one of the brilliant games we got sent has a very jumping theme. It's called Bunny Jump and the idea behind the game is to be the one who has collected the most carrots before the rabbit jumps up into the air.
The second game we got sent is called Yeti in my Spaghetti. The idea behind this game is to try and not let the yeti who is balancing on the spaghetti fall into the bowl.
To set up you place all the carrots into the holes of the burrow, and then you place the rabbit on top. You need to push down quite hard and wait to hear a click to keep it in place. You then get a basket each which you must fill. Lily and I had 2 baskets each as there was only the 2 of us playing.
You take it in turns collecting the carrots and eventually you pull one and the rabbit jumps out from its burrow into the air. The carrots are really easy to put in and pull out of the burrow. You then count up your baskets and the one with the most carrots is the winner.
We played the game quite a few times before she gave up with it, and thats quite good for Lily as sometimes she may only want to play a game once before getting bored.
Some pro's and cons about this game are that the quality is really good, the carrots made of a really thick plastic and the rabbit a softer material. Which is great so it doesn't hurt if it lands on us. But one thing that I did think that was wrong with the game was how sensitive the rabbit was, you had to be careful when pulling out a carrot that you didn't accidently touch the rabbit as it would trigger it to jump before it was meant to.
Lily found funny each time the Yeti fell and was in fits of giggles. Especially at one point where it fell but hung onto some spaghetti with its feet.
Yeti in My Spaghetti is £14.99 and recommended for ages 4+.
Bunny Jump is £21.99 and recommended for ages 5+ although Lily is only just about to turn 3 and she really understood the game and played it well. So I wouldn't let the age range put you off buying it.
Which of the 2 games do you think your child would love?
