Entertaining little ones over the winter months can be very hard work, especially when it is pouring down with Rain! . We love baking, craft, playing games and chilling in front of the TV. Bear and Bell have only just really started to get into table-top games. Which is a good thing especially in the darker and cold months.
When we went shopping just before Christmas to have a look for last minute ideas, Bear choose the game Crazy Claw, We as a family were lucky enough to be able to review the game over the Christmas holidays
Crazy Claw is a game designed for children aged 4 years plus and is ideal for two -four players. It is based on a arcade style game and is great fun for both the older and younger generation. The aim of the game is very simple but it’s also very effective too. The aim of the game is to collect the matching tokens to the matching cards by pounding the paddles to get the coloured balls bouncing, the first one to match all the tokens wins the game. With Bell we changed the game slightly so she could join in and we tried to collect the same colour balls.
To get the balls each player as a go with the claw to get a ball which has a token inside, which is taken out if it matches your Card and then the empty ball goes back in. The game retails at £22.99, to be honest I personally would be happy to pay around £18 for this game if I bought it myself.
The setting up of the game is very simple to do and takes a couple of minutes, which is brilliant for parents and children who are egar to play and especially as it needs to be put up and taken down every time you wish to use it, but as I have said it takes a couple of minutes to do. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. We did find the balls a bit fiddly to open, but this could be that they are new or that I can’t even open a Kinder Egg toy tub so that could be the main reason!
