Bop It! Bounce Review & Giveaway

Hasbro We love playing games. Simple as that. When I heard about Bop It! Bounce from Hasbro I thought this would be a game my boys would love. It’ll make noise, they’ll challenge themselves and each other, and they’ll be active.IMG_5913What I didn’t realize is how active this game would be. I actually wasn’t sure if my 7yo would even be able to play it. You need good eye hand coordination to get the skill down to play it without getting frustrated. Doodle is NOT one to give up so he kept pressing on.

After watching him try it a number of times I wondered if I would even be able to do it. I mean, if my kids can’t play a game, what made me think I could. Initially I was sitting down with the Bop It! Bounce in hand. No, that’s not going to work. To play this game, you have got to be standing up to move around with the ball.

I think this would make a great game to play outside on a nice day. You have wide open spaces to move around, especially if you ball starts to bounce too far. You can zig and zag without fear of crashing into the couch or entertainment center.

Physically, holding the Bop It! Bounce, it fits well into your hand. The handle has a nice grip so it doesn’t slip out of your hand. The top pad that the ball hits is a good size that challenges your mental ability. I also like the wristlet that comes attached to the handle. Not only can you secure it around your wrist, when you’re done playing, the ball sits in the handle so that takes care of losing the ball!



Here’s what Hasbro has to say about the new Bop It! Bounce:

Bop-It! is the fast-action game that calls the shots, inviting players to shout, twist, pull or bop in random order. If players respond correctly, Bop-It! will answer with a new command, but they’ll have to think quickly! The commands will keep getting faster and faster! And if your hand-eye coordination is in top form, put your skill to the test with Bop-It! Bounce. Select from one of six different games, and respond to the voice commands by bouncing the ball on the impact-sensitive trampoline.

With Spring upon us (yes it seems to finally be showing up in MN) we know the May showers will be raining down on us. Not only will the Bop It! Bounce keep the family entertained, there’s also a new game called Twister Hoopla. Similar to the original, this updated version will tie you up in knots, as players become the Twister mat. The iconic dots are now colored rings players use to connect body parts with other players to score points and be the Twister Hoopla champ.

You have the chance to win a Bop It! Bounce.

Required: Tell me another Hasbro game your family enjoys or wants.



Giveaway open to US residents only 18 yrs or older. Please leave your email in the required entry or have it available in your profile. No email/contact = No entry. Giveaway ends 5/22/11 at 11:59 PST. Winner has 48 hours to respond.
