With the summer months now upon us and the summer holidays fast approaching, I am constantly seeking out ways of keeping my 2 kids entertained not just together but also having neighbours kids round and their friends to play.
Having plenty of garden games ready to play is really high up on my agenda and for this the lovely people at Drumond Park have provided us with Pumpaloons, a game of strength and speed which will provide hours of fun during the holidays.
This game is aged at children 4+ and for 2 players. The aim is to race against your opponent to pump up your Pumpaloon the fastest, the player who manages this first is the winner. A simple concept but so much fun!
2x Pumpaloons – Spottyloon and Stripeyloon
2x Pumps with pipes
Initially when this game arrived it was Leah and I alone in the house so we whipped out Spottyloon for a play, setting up was immensely easy, simply connect up the pipes to the pump (only covering the blue valve on the foot pump) and then connect to your Pumpaloon. During game play your Pumpaloon will unravel itself. Leah aged 2 struggled to pump up Spottyloon but with my help we soon had him pumped up and Leah enjoyed playing with him.
A couple of days later we had Lewis’s friend “K” round to play for the afternoon of which we set up Pumpaloons again to play. Lewis and “K” enjoyed playing away although there was some cheating going on as “K” Dad soon took over to help her beat Lewis… Lewis still won though – That’s my lad!!
This really is a great game, plenty of laughs were had and the kids particularly enjoyed it when the arms and head unravel from the body during play. After our games “K” enjoyed dancing round the livingroom singing her current favourite Disney songs to her Stripeyloon.
The only recommendation I would like to provide if you are wanting to own this game… have a puncture repair kit at hand. Shortly after our games, the kids took a Pumpaloon outside to play. Unfortunately our Spottyloon had a fighting (as kids do) related incident on the trampoline and now is being repaired by ClearlyDaddy using a puncture repair kit. Perhaps if Drumond Park would provide a couple of patches as backup in their kit that would be great?
Pumpaloons is available to buy from your local toy stockists, a list of which you can find here and has an RRP of £19.99.
Now for the fun part…
