Fantastic football fun
Use your feet, knees or even your head to keep this awesome football from touching the ground. Challenge your friends to a trick-off as the built-in speaker calls out your Keepy-Uppy score. Fancy a normal match? Remove the sensor and screw the bung into the ball to turn it into a regular football. Now that’s a smart ball!
A silly little piggy
Funny kids will adore this zany twist on pass the parcel! Push Stinky Pig’s belly to make him sing and then roll the dice to determine which way to pass him. But be quick–he could fart at any second! If you are holding Stinky when this happens, take a token. The player with the fewest tokens at the end of the game wins. Easy to play, and absolutely hilarious!
Ready, aim, fire!
Looking for a challenge? In this wildly entertaining game, players must shoot floating targets with soft foam darts. Switch on the base and watch as the air makes the balls levitate. Now, ready, steady, fire! As your shooting skills develop, you can adjust the height of the balls for added difficulty. Who can hit them all first?
Get in the loop
Pindaloo’s premise is simple: just loop the ball from one side of the tube to the other. But, trust us, it’s harder than it sounds. Luckily, practice makes perfect, and soon you’ll be doing all kinds of wacky tricks. Loop the ball high into the air, bounce it on your knee between loops, go bananas! Can be used indoors or outdoors, or even in the pool. The ultimate skill toy!
A robotic wonder
This clever robot allows you to record up to five questions with yes/no answers. But watch out because he’s as cheeky as he is clever. Get the answer wrong, and Quizzie will squirt water in your face! With cool light and sound effects, Quizzie features two face-changing games, the tricky Memory Game and the randomly squirting Lucky Game. Better brush up on your general knowledge if you want to avoid getting wet!
A brilliant piece of art
The brilliant light-up drawing board uses dozens of coloured LEDs to create a glowing effect. Use the fluorescent marker pens to create original masterpieces, or use the see-through screen to trace your favourite pictures. Switch on the frame and watch your artwork illuminate in 36 different ways. Wipe clean with a dry cloth and start all over again. Truly inspiring!
Is your child’s friend a future marine biologist or ocean explorer? They’ll love this rounded tank lamp, which holds two lifelike jellyfish. Kick back, relax, and watch the little jellyfish glide and swim, propelled by jets of air moving the water inside the tank. Three LEDs illuminate the tank in different colours. A fun addition to any room, and much easier to look after than goldfish!
Three, two one, blast-off!
Start practising now because one big jump will send this rocket flying high into the sky! Assemble the simple launcher, load up a lightweight rocket and then give it your all as you leap onto the launchpad. The higher you jump and the harder you land, the further the rocket will soar. Fancy a night launch? No problem because all three of the included rockets light up!
Who’s telling the truth?
Ready to laugh out loud? In this hilarious game, each card comes with three statements. Two of the statements are true, and the other is a lie. Roll the dice to select your fact and read it out, seeing if you can persuade your opponents that your statement is true. For instance: ‘Slugs have five noses. Donald Duck was once banned from Finland because he doesn’t wear trousers. 99% of people can’t lick their own elbow’. Can you spot the lie?
An ancient game of skill
Challenge a friend to this fast-paced game of skill that will have you plotting to capture each other’s pieces. Played worldwide since the time of the Pharaohs, Mancala is quick and easy to learn, with a five-minute playtime. The solid wood board comes with colourful glass beads as pieces. Put your thinking cap on–it’s time to outwit your opponent!
