Finding great toys for children that don’t involve being plugged in is getting increasingly more difficult. Not all toys need to be fitness related, but getting their heads out of the television is a major plus.
I was asked to review Hiccups by PlaySmart Inc. This is a great little game that your children will love! It’s sort of like a puzzle ball, except it’s a small ball in a bigger ball with “cups.” The point of the game is to get the smaller ball into each numbered cup in sequential order. If the ball misses the next numbered cup, you have to start all over again. Hiccups is recommended for children 6 and up. This is definitely a game that challenges your mind, and your hand eye coordination.
PlaSmart Inc has a ton of fun, educational toys for children of all ages, including the PlasmaBike and the PlasmaCar for smaller kids, and the Perplexus Maze for older children.
You can purchase Hiccups for just $9.99. It would be great for a birthday present, or any other occasion. ;This would make a great hot potato game, if you made the rules that the first person to miss the next cup is out, starting over again, if you have more than one child, or if your child wants to play with you. Lots of laughter will be had, when even mom or dad misses some cups! My husband and I are in a competition to see who can get through all the cups the fastest! We actually sit for hours playing with this, It really is that much fun!
Have you ever played this? Do you have any games that are similar to Hiccups? What is your child’s favorite game or toy to play with on rainy days? Let me know in the comments?
