As warm weather starts to trickle into the extended forecast, it’s time to start planning for upcoming vacations and three-day weekends. Whether traveling by car or airplane, you’ll need to have some entertainment on-hand for yourself and your young traveling companions. While travel entertainment is of upmost importance, don’t forget to throw some classic games into the trunk or carry-on bag for entertainment when you arrive at your destination. There’s nothing like a sun-drenched day at the beach, capped off with a night of SORRY!, MONOPOLY, OPERATION and more!
We had the exciting opportunity to review the Hungry Hungry Hippos Fun on the Run travel game. I will say this is a great game that I used to play with my brother when I was little, but, the problem was, we would always lose the little balls for the Hippos to eat. Hasbro has done an amazing job making this game easy to take on a road trip, picnic, etc... The game is covered by a plastic dome which holds in all the little bits for the Hippos to eat. I am amazed at how well constructed this little game is. My kids are hard on everything, and this will withstand them for a long time. It has been thrown, kicked, and smacked around, still great! My kiddos are both special needs, so it is not like they are just destructive, they just can't help it sometimes, especially when they want their own way and the other does not see it that way.
My opinion, this game is a great addition to our activities! I always take a "bag 'o goodies" to every function to keep the kiddos busy, this will always be in there, along with a few others I will add to the collection!
This spring and summer, Hasbro has your travel entertainment covered. With a variety of options – from card games to compact Fun on the Run games – the kids won’t want to leave the back seat!
Travel time will fly by with Hasbro’s newest card game, RATUKI. It’s a frantic race to form piles of cards by playing cards one to five in number order, playing either a higher card (five on top of a four) or a lower card (three on top of a four) as quickly as possible. When you slam down a five, slap the pile, yell “RATUKI!” and collect the cards. At the end of each round, players count their cards and the first player to get 100 total points wins.
Classic game fans interested in taking the fun on the road will love Fun on the Run games. These affordable games are portable versions of favorites such as CONNECT 4, HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS, GUESS WHO? and BATTLESHIP. When the vacation is over, kids can pack these games in a backpack for fun on the school bus or during an after-school play date.
