Boom Boom Balloon (Product Review)
Kids are huge fans of games like Old Maid, Hot Potato, Don’t Break the Ice and Jenga. These games are suspenseful and enthralling as the players wait to see who is going to get stuck with the losing hand or toppling the carefully made structure. At the same time, all kids love balloons, but what many of them love even more than mere balloons is popping balloons. As one might assume from the name, Boom Boom Balloon combines those two loves into a fun, tension filled (no pun intended) game!
Let’s take a look at some of the features
Boom Boom Balloon operates on a very simple concept. The game comes with 10 balloons, several sticks, and a frame. Users blow up one of the balloons inside the frame and tie it off, and then insert all of the sticks into the holes in the frame. Players then roll the 6-sided die and push a stick or sticks of their choice in, depending upon their roll. As the sticks go further in, the surface tension is increased on the balloon, and the loser is the one that makes it pop! The game is very simple and easy to understand.
Boom Boom Balloon will have a suggested retail price of $19.99 upon release in the fall of 2013.
Things We Like About Boom Boom Balloon
The game is rated for children ages 8 and up, but the concept is so simple, nearly any age can understand it, though younger children may be put off by the loud burst. Even adults can have fun waiting with baited breath for the strained balloon to finally burst. The frame includes a very handy tie-off system that relieves players of tying tiny, awkward knots, and all of the included parts are sturdy and well made.
Things We Did Not Like About Boom Boom Balloon
While Boom Boom Balloon is undoubtedly a fun and simple concept, the only drawback is that merely 10 balloons are included. Certainly, replacement balloons are very inexpensive and can be purchased almost anywhere, but it would have been nice to have had more included.
