I bought this Red Rover Game as a birthday present for my son’s 3rd birthday. He loves naming colours so thought he would enjoy the game.

The Product
=========

I bought this game from Amazon for £14.99, which is cheaper than the high street shops that we’re selling for £19.99.

The game is for 2-4 players and for ages 3 plus. The game requires 3xAA batteries, which are not included.

You get Red Rover the dog and 12 bones.

Green Bone inc Circle
Black bones inc Star shape
Brown bone inc Square
Triangle bone
Red bone inc 1
Blue bone inc 2
Yellow bone inc 3
Number 4 bone
Orange bone inc A
Pink bone inc B
Purple bone inc C
Letter D Bone

The Game
========

The game is very easy to set up, turn Red Rover on; the switch is located at the base.

Red Rover then asks which game you want to play Puppy Colour Game (pet his nose once) or Big Dog Challenge (pet his nose twice).

The Puppy Colour Game is just finding the colour bones.

The Big Dog Challenge is finding colours, shapes, letters and numbers bones.

Once you have decided which game you are playing you need to scatter the bones around right side up then pet Red Rover’s nose when your ready to play. You get behind Red Rover and wait for him to tell you which bone your after.

You find the bone Red Rover asked for and push it into his mouth; he will then tell you if you are right or wrong, if wrong you can try again. If you’re right you get to keep the bone.

You keep going until players have collected all the bones and the player with the most bones is the winner. Red Rover will give the winner a bark.

Overview
=======

This is a very nice game and my son does enjoy playing with it but does get tired of playing after 1 or 2 games. Each game is about 10-15 minutes long.

Red Rover has a blue backpack where the bones are stored while not in use, this is very handy.

One of the annoying things about Red Rover is that if you take too long to find a bone, Red Rover will get bored and ask for a different one. He will also ask for a different bone if you cannot find the right bone after a few attempts. He has a automatic switch of if not being played with to save battery life.

Good value for money but this not a game that can grab my son’s attention for more than 20 minutes the second game is always a bit of a struggle. I would recommend though as it is very educational and the my son does really enjoy the first game at least.

Thanks for reading.
