It is no secret that I am a fan of Spin Master Toys. I have a Pinterest Board dedicated to them, and have been very happy to review a few of their toys. Today I am going to review one of their games, the Boom Boom Balloon game.
First off let me tell the absolute truth, I was a big chicken to play this game. Popping balloons are not my thing. BUT I was wrong, the pop on these balloons is subtle, and more like a release of air (not a big bang). Whew.
|Easy Peasy Set Up!|
|You don't even have to tie the balloon.|
|The 'pop' was not alarming, just a 'whoosh' and then the release of air.|
With the first game we played, Dad was a big chicken like me... you can see him in the background being silly. Like I said, the balloon gives a subtle pop, not a big one, hurrah again for that!, but we did have a challenge...and that was that the sticks weren't clicking.
Do not put your sticks in upside down like we did, hahahaha!
Once we turned the sticks the right way, the game was hopping!
Once we got the sticks in the right way, we had a game going!! It was really fun! You roll the die and have to push a stick in until you hear the number of clicks that came up. You can get a 1, 2, or 3.
|My son had a blast playing this game!! No balloon pun intended. :)|
This is a great game. It's recommended for ages 8+. Our youngest is 6 and still had a great time playing it. Balloon Blast does come with balloons, and you'll want to discard those as soon as they pop.
