Bop It Beats! From Hasbro Gaming : Review ...

Bop it!
Spin it!
Scratch it! 
Flip it!
Reverse it!

My daughter and I have been having lots of fun testing out the new Bop It Beats game this week, from Hasbro Gaming. How cool is this DJ style turntable? The principle is the same as the original games, with a whole new makeover and musical twist.

As you may have guessed from the picture above, we are big fans of all the Bop it games. Having 4 children ranging from 9 to 20 years old, they all have enjoyed fun bop it games over the years. Mum and dad always love joining in with the fun too!!

Everyone used to argue whose turn it was, my eldest son being the first to clear the original Bop it. We often ended up buying more than one of each model to save on tantrums!

The new Bop It 'Beats' is so much fun, think original Bop it crossed with a fun DJ style twist. The aim of the game is still the same, to see who can get the highest score by following the instruction being told. The music plays and you are the DJ.

Start the game by hitting the bop it button on the side. Nicki Minaj music ,'Pounds the alarm' starts to play. Then follow the instruction being shouted out.

Bop it!
Spin it!
Scratch it! 
Flip it!
Reverse it!

As the game goes on the difficult level increases. There are 5 game modes~Classic, Classic Party, DJ, DJ Party or Remix. To change the games, slowly turn the turntable before you start, to choose which one you want to play.

Classic game

Starts off nice and easy, then the speed increases and the reverse and repeat commands are added.

Classic Party game

Same as the classic game but you can have more players, simply pass it over to your friend when the command says so. Perfect for a party game!!

DJ game

This is a game of memory, follow the instructions he will tell you the moves and you don't start until he says go!! This is such a fun game on the memory!! Aww it gets harder as it goes on too..

DJ Party game 

The Dj game you can play with friends. Pass it over on command ...

 Remix game

Freestyle mode, have fun practising all the modes, flipping it and seeing the Bop it light up...

Me and my daughters favourite game is the classic and DJ party games, so we can play together. I ended up waiting for my 4th child to have one who just enjoys playing, not caring if they win or lose. Fun is the name of the game. If my boys are reading take note?! Hubby too...

To change the level simply press the bop it button to turn the turntable around slowly to pick a new game.

Twister Rave Skip It : Review...

This morning me and my daughter has been reviewing Twister rave skip it. We had lots of fun at the park trying to master the moves. This games comes from one of the biggest toy companies in the world - Hasbro gaming range.

About Twister Rave Skip~

The longer you go, the more you'll glow with this fun Twister Rave Skip It game. Simply put the hoop on one leg and swing the Skip It while you hop over it. To keep it going you have to move your foot forward and backwards. The colours glow as you skip, and when all 4 colours glow, you've made it. With 4 colours and more than 20 light patterns, you can light it up to level up with Twister Rave Skip It. Once you stop moving though, you go back to the start and try again.

What me and my daughter thought of the game~

We was looking forward to trying the Twister Rave Skip It out as it was not a game we were familiar with. Anything that has the word Twister in gets my daughters attention straight away as she loves the original game but then again who does not? First thing first, we open the game and placed our batteries inside (requires 3 AAA batteries which are not included). Then we found somewhere flat with plenty of room to move. The park was the best choice for practising, the sun was out and plenty of room!

Up first mum, I needed to try so I could show my daughter what to do and who would not want a piece of the fun!?!. I placed it over my foot, so glad the hoop is adjustable to go over bigger feet too. After my first go I thought I'm to old, I will never get it. After 5 goes I was on a roll, it was really fun once you got it going around. I found it work best with my leg moving forward and backwards, it really helps you get into the swing of things.

My daughter simple placed the hoop onto one leg and swung the Skip It around. She took a little longer than me to master it. For some reason she had it in her mind to run forward to so it took a little time to get the thoughts in that you stand in the same place. One we master it we felt like we had done a work out, so home for a rest before we go out later for round 2. Soon we will be ready for competition time!!

You need a little coordination for this game, which does come in time, even for someone my age...

What you need to know~
  • The game is light up skipping fun
  • Rave Skip It lights up in 4 colours as you swing it and hop over it.
  • Not to be used in complete darkness.
  • 20+ light patterns.
  • 3 AAA batteries required (not included)
  • Only use on flat surfaces.
  • Don't stop or the Skip It resets.
  • Coordinate your leg speed with the speed of the swing.
  • Only to be used around ankle, never use on arm.
  • Age range 6-14 recommend.
  • RRP : £19.99

Snow Boogie Polar Bear and Penguin Inflatable Tube Sledges from Snow Boogie Review....

My youngest children have been asking when will the snow arrive? every morning for what seems like forever!! " when is the snow coming mum, when when when? "soon I always reply. In fact the only morning they did not ask was Christmas Day. We cannot afford that expense everyday to keep them from asking. So with that in mind I was especially glad to receive the Snow Boogie Penguin to Review.

We have just been asked by micro-scooters to review one of their Maxi Micro Scooters.The company run by two mums who have made scootering to school popular nationwide.They have scooters to suit every age group from three years and up - right through to adults who want to join their children on the school run or even commute to work. The ladies now work with the original Swiss company who developed Micro Scooters and advise them on ideas particularly for pre-schoolers.The scooter I picked to review is the Maxi Micro Limited Edition lime green t-bar.
