CLOSED Pig Goes Pop Review and Giveaway Ends March 31st



 Drumond Park are giving you a chance to win Pig Goes Pop, currently the UK’s third most popular children’s game (source NPD all-year figures, 2011)
When played by my family members and friend's childrenPig Goes Pop has to be the number one.  I have already plans to buy this as gifts for a couple of little cousins.

Its very easy to set up and the pig can take a lot of bashing, its pretty sturdy.

The strategy is simple, feed the pig with burgers till he pops rather like me on a takeaway night!!

The anticipation as you wait for him to burst and the shrieks when he does (Yes that was me too!) is what makes this game so much fun.

I think what makes it so attractive to children is that when the pig pops it means you are out, but it in some way is a great achievement when it does so little ones don't feel they have lost.


The rules are simple each player rolls the dice feeds the pig a purple, red, yellow or green hamburger, pushing his cheery head down the number of times shown on the burger. So little ones also learn colours and numbers at the same time in a fun way. 
 It's a brilliant family-fun game that will be adored by boys and girls, as well as Mums, Dad, Grans… in fact absolutely anyone. It’s incredibly easy to play (2 to 6 players), is
a ton of superb fun… and a great opportunity for children and adults to play together.


Forget the year of the Rabbit, this is still very much the year of the Pig, and for this lovable cartoon-like character, it’s a year that’s one of abundance and
plenty!
Remember, this Pig is a greedy fella and although he can fit more than quite a few mouthfuls into his ever-bulging tummy, it won’t be long (although no-one knows how long) before his coat can no longer take the strain… and to everyone’s amazement and rapturous squealing delight, this little Pig goes POP!

Can the girls take on the boys and beat their best friends or mum or dad?
Who’s winning? Well if the Pig goes Pop on your turn, you’re out – till the next round. If not, you’re still in the game. Just keep on going until he bursts at the seams.

For a new game, just rewind his curly tail… and the next round commences.

Going to a party, why not bring the Pig? Or if the kids have mates round to play, it’s a fantastic game to get out and have fun with before tea. And Pig goes Pop makes for a lasting ‘forever favourite’ present… that will keep them all happy and busy for hours and hours!

  26. My favourite game as a child was hopscotch, so that may not count. The park was built close to our house and I watched them lay the slabs for the hop scotch. It was my gran who taught me hoe to play it and I thought it was utterly awesome and played it loads. I bet I still have my hopping skills now. When it comes to activity games, I liked Guess who. My favourite memory was playing against my sister and I lied claiming I was Claire. She was adament I was not, and a huge row broke out. I declared "How do you know I am not Claire?" She picked her card up and turned it rounds, stating I couldn't be, as she was! That shut me up. :(

  27. We used to play with long lengths of elastic knotted into a loop- long enough to wrap around two people & a third person to jump in the middle, the you would start of around the ankles singing "2, 4, 6, 8, Mary's at the garden gate,3, 5, 7, 9 she's ..... (insert name)friend, not mine.
    You had to do it without snagging the elastic & if you completed it the elastic moved up all the way to above the ears. We spend hours, days playing this all for a few pence.
    I remember moving up to high school & being utterly disappointed that no one played games in the "playtime" anymore - heck it changed to "break" from playtime too!

    My two favourite games were 'Murder in the Dark' and 'Sharks'. Murder in the Dark involved someone picking 'the dagger', lights turned off and the 'murderer' had to kill someone then the others would guess who it was. And Sharks was basically jumping from couch to couch - probably wouldn't be allowed in today's Health and Safety obsessed world!!!
