Shake, rattle and find.
on 20 July 2011
I'd never seen one of these until yesterday and it looked rather unimpressive - until I had a go!
This is basically a sealed plastic cylinder full of coloured beads and objects to find. As you shake the tube the contents move around and once the items come to the surface you can tick them off the list of items to find. It's incredibly tactile and another review has already said that even if you're in your thirties you won't be able to resist having a blast.
It can be quite a noisy game but that's part of the charm, it's a very social game with one person shaking and then others looking to see if anything has been revealed, and of course the Find It tube can be passed around as everyone has a go at shaking and spinning the contents. It's surprisingly addictive and once you pick this up you feel determined to find all the objects, as an adult I considered my superior shaking ability would be an advantage resulting in me dazzling those around me with my finds, but I was no better than a seven year old!
In a nutshell: A brilliantly simple toy which can become an obsession, parents will appreciate the fact that it consists of thousands of parts - but never really needs tidying away! Once you've 'solved' this one you'll want to get the others available.
