About Bop-It Bounce (Amazon.com review)

This ball bounce game features an electronic voice command to cue you through six different challenging games: Max Bounce tests how fast you can bounce in 30 seconds, Infinite Bounce tests how long you can keep bouncing, Hang Time tests how high you can bounce, Right Height challenges you to match the shots called by the electronic voice, Little-Middle-Big challenges you to bounce at exactly the right height, and Free For All lets you bounce it out freestyle. Build your skills on your own or compete against your friends to find out who's the ultimate "Bounce Master"!
My sister-in-law had a baby shower recently so, I thought this would be the perfect time to debut our new game. The kids were so excited as soon as they saw a ball and couldn't wait for me to get it out of the box, put in the batteries (3 AAA) and let them play!
Now, let me just say, the box says 8+ years of age and I wondered why the age was so high. It is, after all, a bouncing game. As soon as I started hitting the ball and watching it fly across the room instead of straight up in the air, I learned why. This game definitely teaches hand-eye coordination and tests your reaction time, all of which I fail at miserably, apparently. I ran around the room, running into walls and trying to avoid breaking anything only to get a whopping 35 bounces. I was pleased until my husband announced he'd gotten the high score of 600. Needless to say, I wanted to bounce that ball across his head.
The kids under 8 gave the game a go, were just as unsuccessful as me, but we all had a blast running around like crazy. It's definitely a great indoor game, especially with all the recent rain and bad weather. When the adults saw us playing, they all wanted a turn, too. There are many different levels and games to play, just with the push of a button. We haven't tried all of them yet, but we definitely will.
Bop-It has definitely produced a hit with this new game! It will absolutely keep kids and adults occupied and would be great fun for a beach vacation, too. The more people playing, the more fun you will have laughing at each other and trying to beat each other's scores.
