2.0 out of 5 stars this version does not buck! 12 Oct 2007
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
this version of buckaroo just doesn't work as well as the old version. this one (or at least my one) does not buck at all unless you cheat, as stated by someone else below. the old version used to buck with hardly any effort at all, which made the game tense and exciting; brilliant. but with this version, even my nineteen month old son (unsteady as he is)can't make the mule buck. arghhhh! no fun at all.

it's a great idea to try and update the product by incorporating levels and it is a far more attractive looking mule, but the whole point of the game is to make it buck, right? my advice would be to try and find an older version. we've not touched our new buckaroo since we bought it and i am now trying to get my hands on an older version...

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't buck won't buck 1 April 2007
By Blaidd
I had Buckaroo as a child, and it was always going off. Bought this to play with my daughter and I just can't get it to buck without cheating. There are 3 sensitivity levels, and even on the highest one you need a certain amount of heavy handedness in balancing your item to set him off - where the whole idea is to be delicate. We've had more winners and losers decided by an item falling off when we've run out of space to balance them.

Perhaps we've had the only good tempered mule in history.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Build Quality and Does Not Buck 17 Nov 2008
By debbie8355 TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a classic gamic which I remember being brilliant from childhood. The theory of it is brilliant, load items until the donkey throws them off but this version is cheap, tacky and it doesn't even buck unless you prod it roughly once all the items are on. The items to load are all very poor quality.
The mechanism to reset the donkey is also difficult to operate.
Another game which has been completely ruined by poor production and cost cutting.
Don't waste your money on this version. If you have a very young child 'Bounce Bounce Tigger' is much better quality and works slightly better than this game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money 15 Aug 2012
By jules21
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I just think this game is rubbish, I was really looking forward to playing it with my 4yr old son especially when the box said that the mule was even angrier in this new version, what a load of rubbish. It's hard to get the saddle to balance on right for a start and when you put 1 item on the saddle it falls off to that side, the only way we can get the saddle to stay on is to put 2 things on at once, 1 on each side and its even hard to fit all of the items on and even then sometimes it doesn't buck. Please don't waste your money, I certainly wish I hadn't.

Very disappointing. I had this toy as a kid and loved it. Decided to buy it for my kids (and me!) for Xmas but it doesn't even buck.... Unless you use a very heavy hand. We don't have money to waste, but I did with this one.

What a disppointment! You can carefully place all the items on the donkey and nothing happens! Not very exciting! We played it about twice and ended up giving it away to the charity shop. Hopefully someone else will enjoy it! We didn't!!

1.0 out of 5 stars New version not good 27 Oct 2011
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this for my nephew, who's 8, and unless he's really really clever, you can load up this donkey without it bucking easily - very disappointed the vintage version is so much better - wouldn't recommend this at all.

this buckaroo just will not buck... my two year can manage to get everything on... thats if the saddle would stop falling off time and time again. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone to buy.... not like the one I had as a child.

5.0 out of 5 stars buckaroo
Would not buy this product again as the donkey does not buck as the goods that you have to add to the
donkey are too light - very poor workmanship.
