Giddy Up Board Game Review

 (ad - Gifted)

Games have got to be our favorite pastime in this house. Ideal offered us this Giddy Up game, and it looked so much fun that we most definitely had to give it a try. 

The Giddy up game is horse themed and all about fast reactions. 

I was super impressed when it arrived. The horse's head was a decent size and was really emotive and happy. Lily was so excited to play it and Henry just loved the look of it. 

We are all massive horse fans in this house so to have a game themed upon horses is just great. 


The game comes with a horse's head, attached with reins and an extendable pole. It also comes with game cards and instructions. 

The game has 3 modes to play, Training, Challenge, and Cross Country. 

We tried the training first to get used to playing. Lily found sitting on the pole easy enough and as it was quite light she could move around on it really easily. 

The horse is interactive and you have to do certain things and move the horse in certain ways to complete an action. So for example, you can pat the horse's head, feed the horse by putting your hand into its mouth, and you can also move to trot and jump. 

In the challenge game, you will have to follow a set of commands to win the game. Lily found this great fun, but also challenging. You have to make sure you do the correct action otherwise you lose and have to start again. Also, it's a challenge to how fast you can do it which adds loads of excitement to the game. 


In Cross Country mode, there are little cards that you can use to set out a track. These cards all have instructions on them, such as pat me, jump and even more complicated ones such as do a 360. This then becomes a challenge of how fast you can complete your own track. Lily loved that she could be creative with this part and choose what pattern of commands she wanted. 

The little cards that come with the game are stored in the horse's head. This is really handy because otherwise, they would have ended up lost for sure. The cards slot in and out the head easily and it's something your child should be able to do themselves. 



Lily loved that this game you play all by yourself, and you don't have to wait for a friend to play with you. But she also enjoyed taking turns with her sisters and having a good giggle at the actions that had to be done. 

It is such a good game and it's also going to be great fun to play outdoors now that the weather is getting better. 

The game is £17.99 and can be bought from the Smyths Toy store Website
