We love Elephants in this house. I was lucky enough to visit an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka some years ago, I even got to feed a baby elephant. So when we had the chance to look at a game inspired by one of my favourite animals we were rather pleased, the fact that’s its great fun – big bonus! Today’s Blog Birthday review and giveaway – Doh Nutters from Drumond Park.
You pick your coloured mask and the object is to be the first person to retrieve all of their coloured doughnuts from the game board. This sounds easier than it is in practice – leading to lots of giggles.
Monkey turned 4 in December and he has struggled a bit with this game so far. There is some technique required to hook the doughnuts on to the trunk of your elephant, he has got a little frustrated. But I like games that provide a challenge, and where we can see his progression. I’m sure he’ll be beating Daddy P in no time!
Once you have your masks on, and the doughnuts are spread across the game board, the youngest player shouts ‘Start’ and off you go. It’s a free for all to see who can hook their doughnuts the quickest. No hands allowed! This is something Monkey found a challenge, but we’re working on it.
The elephant masks come with elasticated straps, my only comment is that I wish they were adjustable. Monkey struggled to keep his on properly, but they were a great fit for myself and Daddy P. Even Brewster wanted to get involved! But other than that, they are well made and will stand up to hours of fun playing Doh Nutters.
I do like the fact that this is game is fast and furious. There’s a scramble to hook the doughnuts and then the game is over. So it’s great if you want something quick to occupy the kids. They can play it over and over, swop colours and go again.
Priced at £14.99 I think there are hours of fun to be had with this all action game.
