Angry Birds Go Jenga Pirate Pig Attack Game Review and #Giveaway
You know I have to start off by saying I have no idea what the fascination is with the game Angry Birds. I can understand children a bit more than adults but I have known quite a few who love it. This said, my children love to play the game on our cell phones and I honestly love letting them since they are usually doing so when I need them to keep busy! So when Hasbro asked me to review their newest toy, Angry Birds Go Jenga Pirate Pig Attack Game, I was pretty excited.
Then, the boys BOTH added this to their Christmas list around the same time coincidentally. I was even more excited to find I would have the opportunity to give my kids an early Christmas present from their Elf on the Shelf Friend, Rojo. I was also pretty pumped to see this made into a form of Jenga as we are die hard fans of the game (adult version of course). This game comes packed with everything you need to build a pirate ship and then of course every boys favorite thing to do, DESTROY it with your bird friends!
The problem you encounter when playing this with younger children and even within the recommended age range, is that is becomes a lot of work to play. You have to take quite a bit of time as well as have steady hands to build the blocks into the required designs. Then, depending on your shooting skills, your hard work is destroyed in seconds. Now of course this is just me and I am well aware of the need for boys to destroy things while I, on the other hand, love to build up something and then admire it forever!
We enjoyed taking our time building each challenge and we would go around the table allowing everyone to add a piece at a time just like in how you remove pieces from Jenga. The challenges weren't too difficult and the boys loved the pirate theme! So even though it was a bit wasteful of our time in my eyes, I think that in today's market of all the technology that children are exposed to, I like that Hasbro is trying to get them active physically offline doing something instead of sitting in front of a screen.
Cost/Available to Purchase: $29.99 Angry Birds Go Jenga Pirate Pig Attack Game
Recommendation: The kids enjoyed playing with the little bird pieces, but not actually setting up the game and playing it how it was intended UNLESS I was involved and we were building it together. I like the game for what it is but I'm not quite sure its something we will play constantly.
Giveaway: Hasbro is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's lucky readers a Angry Birds Go Jenga Pirate Pig Attack Game of their own!
