Silly fun for everyone! (Over 2ft 6in),
This review is from: Twister (Toy)
Ok, If you've been on Mars for the last few decades Twister is the game where have a large plastic sheet with big coloured dots on it and a board with a spinny pointy thing. Realistically you need at least three people to play, but you can just about manage with two. Especially if one is a contortionist!
Spread the sheet on the floor and give the board to the third player. He spins the arm which dictates which limb the other players have to place on which coloured dot. Easy-peasy. Until about the third move.
We have nine kids. We have had Twister for about 16 years. We have had, what must add up to, months of enormous and ridiculous fun with it. It just is one of the simplest and most fun games on the market.
The other stuff: Well, don't pay too much attention to the blurb. It has absolutly no educational value at all. Any child that doesn't know it's left from right and it's colours is almost certainly too short to play - though that shouldn't stop them from trying. And anyway, in the middle of the chaos that is Twister, they are not going to have time to worry about it. In this house when short people play they always end up getting lots of help, and cheating is standard. I've given it 2 stars anyway, because it seems to be a contemporary fixation that everything must be educational.
My only complaint is on the durability side. The 'arm' comes off the board too easily. In 16 years we've had three Twisters.Then again, given the amount of use they've had maybe that's not such bad going.
