) This arrived too late for our 2004 book, but it's a winner! Our mixed-aged testors(5-9) had fun not only playing inside and outside but also making up their own games. About thte only thing they didn't like was misplacing a few beanbags! The product not only held interest after the newness wore off...our testors friends asked if they could play Bucket Blast at a sleep over party this weekend. These are 9 year old girls- but the 5 year old brother in the group loved it,too. The buckets that strap onto the and belts are sturdy, and easily assembled. The kids were able to assemble them.
This is a fun active game with 15 suggested games and room for kids to make up their own.
It's a fun game set for indoors, outdoors. Our parent tester wrote, "Easy to take to the beach or even just fun day trips where there is a block of time whether a picnic or something, great time could be had by all."
Kids learn a lot about turn taking, color recognition, counting and team playing.
According to our parent tester ...."There was very little bickering going on with this. The kids all
seemed to find their own place and were able to play at whatever level
they could. They all enjoyed it."
