Playtime with Pop It – Could This Be The Greatest Toy Ever?
The Pop it toys is a game-changer! Keeps children entertained and provides a good sensory experience – as little hands love popping the colorful bubbles, and hey, who doesn’t like to be the winner and have the chance to pop the big ones too? object: Be the quickest player to pop all the bubbles.
The first obstacle is a rolling ball (the “Bubble Blower”) that rolls forward along an obstacle course. Once it passes through the first obstacle course, the bubble popping machine comes into play. Your objective is to make the ball roll through the hoop without popping any bubbles. It’s not easy, but the more time you invest, the more points you can accumulate.
The second obstacle is a net with four rings, three on each side. Again, there are hoops to jump through and the goal is to clear the ring and move to the next ring. The object is still to clear all the rings and win the game. The challenge is to know when to stop.
The third obstacle is really the same as the first except you now have a basket with a bowling ball hidden inside. When the ball rolls across the basket, a loud sound will make all the bubbles burst. And you really should stop playing when the sound hits the wall. Again, it’s just not fun.
The fourth obstacle is much like the second: a rotating hoop with bowling balls rolling off one side. Again, it’s hard to predict where the ball is going to land. Again, it’s not easy. Once again, the key is to keep playing until the music stops.
One final challenge is called the bubble shooter. This is a simple yet challenging game: aim your object (the bubble) at the other end of the screen and press the trigger. As the bubble moves along the screen, a small circular pattern appears around it. When the bubble stops on a particular spot, music will play!
That’s really all there is to this unique game. It’s great fun for younger kids and also provides some much needed exercise. They can spend hours playing and not worry about hurting themselves. This is a perfect toy to provide entertainment and teach motor skills at the same time.
It’s safe to say that Pop it Pop is the ultimate toy. It doesn’t only teach but entertains. It will appeal to both boys and girls. This is a toy with a simple concept that keeps the interest of those that are younger. I hope Pop it Pop continues to become a big hit.
For now, though, my son’s favorite game with this toy is called Bubble blast time. This involves popping bubbles by shaking the toy while riding a bike. The controls of the bike must be mastered in order to get the best result.
This type of toy has also gone through some changes. Up until recently, Pop it was equipped with the traditional bubble blasting sound effects. However, it no longer features these. Instead, it makes use of the “Hollywood” voice that is heard in the movie!
The changes are beneficial to children. First of all, they are no longer bored with the sound that accompanies every bubble. Secondly, they can spend a fair amount of time on a bike and doing other activities that stimulate their imagination and burn off some of the extra energy. These two combined make a wonderful and healthy toy for children.
All of this is not to say that I don’t still love the Pop it toy! It still attracts me to watch the show, and my son still plays with it sometimes when I am not home. It is a toy that can provide us with hours of fun and helps keep our children’s imaginations open. It is just a matter of balancing the needs of the toy with those of the child. I know that I would not have it any other way!
