Are you good at skipping? …. Stop there!!!!…. I meant Skipping as in a fun game! Not skipping the classes in college and skipping your duties. Shh… Keep it with you.. I was good at skipping the classes in the Uni though (something I should never reveal it to DD1 and Yes.. Please! Don’t tell my Mum :( ). It seems she already had learnt a few tricks and trying to convince me to bunk school! Be alert Mummy!
But she is very good at Skipping – guess it right - the fun skipping :). We have a Hula Hoop skipper and that was her most loved toy. And when she was told that she is going to review “Twister Rave Skip-It” from the leading Toy company Hasbro, she was Speechless and couldn’t wait for the delivery.
So… Why “Twister Rave Skip-It” is a great attraction for the girls and could be a must have!?
- Twister Rave Skip-It game is light up skipping fun – What more do you expect from a girly toy!?
- Twister Rave Skip-It lights up in 4 colours as you swing it and hop over it - It is just not 4 colours- More fun Awaits,
- 20+ light patterns -> You are guaranteed for an endless entertainment.
- Don’t stop or the Skip-It resets - Of which you might be really annoyed of some (most) times.
- Coordinate your leg speed with the speed of the swing - You are sure to enjoy the fun, Don’t underestimate it though.. I could never make it and DD1 is getting a bit better now.
Skip-It is all about improving your concentration and co-ordination. The longer you go, the more you’ll glow with Twister Rave Skip-It. There are so many different patterns to encourage you and keep you going.
How do you get on with Twister Rave Skip-It
Put the hoop on one leg and swing the rope while you hop over it. – Which I still haven’t managed to do well and DD1 had plenty of opportunities to tease and trick me :(. The colours glow and progress to each pattern and when all the four colours light up you’ve won the game! ” Don’t think it is easy… But it is not impossible. With 20 unique light levels to master, Twister Skip-It is the exciting past-time that’s guaranteed to keep you on your toes.
As you skip along, you are sure to get the rhythm and there is a great chance to rock it until you get tired. It is a great fun for girls and an excellent investment to keep them going…My 8 year old managed to get atleast 10 patterns as far as I could see but soon after that she was tired and couldn’t do more. So I wished, there was a pause button to give them a short break so she does not lose her score. She was indeed very disappointed when the Skip-It was resetting to the start! And I was definitely a Mum in trouble
What could have been improved:
- Though it is advised to do it with Socks On, I felt it would have been great if the hoop had some softer material for the delicate skin.
- As mentioned, even when you stop to take a break, Skip-It resets and it is definitely disappointing to an eight year old. But there is a workaround (which we are still not 100% sure as we were successful only a few times) – you can move it by hand to keep the motion Sensor active.
- There is no information available to say the sequence of pattern. Though it is not that necessary for most children, I felt it would have been great if there was a pattern booklet to let the children know where they are.
- The Batteries – I really wish the toys that need batteries could be sold with the batteries to start with to reduce the fuss and mess. Please note this game requires 3 x AAA batteries, which are not included and we were lucky enough to have some in stock at home.
There are some Tips and Tricks of how to do a dance move with Skip-It – Browse http://www.hasbro.com/twister/en_US/play/rave.cfm for more videos. And there are also other range of toys available from Hasbro.
Twister Rave Skip-It is currently sold at an average price of £19.99. For something that would make the play time fun, Skip-It is definitely a good choice and may be all the girls can work together to beat Skip-it and reach the final level
