Product Review - Pop up Pirate

This game pretty much does exactly as the title suggests; makes a pirate pop up.



If you have a pirate loving boy or girl in your house, then this toy will go down a treat. The premise of the game is that each player (4 can play) are given a number of coloured swords. Each player then takes it in turns to stick their sword into a slit on the side of the barrel. At one point in the game, one of the swords will trigger the injector mechanism in the barrel and out shoots the spirited pirate.

It's a simplistic game with hardly any rules to follow, so one you can literally get out of the box and get playing pretty much straight away. After each game, you can rotate the pirate figure in the barrel so that a different sword will trigger the fun each time.



It is of robust plastic construction which I think would aid longevity and mean that it can be played for years with little wear and tear. For young kids, this is a great game for developing sharing and taking turn skills; which are essential skills for sibling harmony. Additionally, as the game involves carefully pushing one's swords into the side of the barrel little kids can hone their fine motor skills in addition to learning to pay attention as they wait their turn to see who can make the pirate pop up.

Recommended for ages 4 and upwards, but our 3 year old already loves it. I would imagine older kids (maybe 7 years might bore more easily with its repetitive nature).



Prices vary, and we paid $15 for our game which makes it a great toy to take along to a birthday party.

Overall, due to the quality of the toy and the sheer entertainment value I give this a 9/10.
