Bop It XT £17.99 @ Argos
Time has pretty much run out for home delivery with lots of places and this Bop It XT is out of stock for home delivery with Argos anyway, however there are plenty of them in stock in most stores around the country so it's not going to be a huge drama for you to go and pick one up.
(You can check stock around the country over at icheckstock.co.uk)
I bought my eldest son a Bop It for Christmas five years ago and it was a HUGE hit with everyone, not just him - if you want to bring out the competitive element in almost every family member and friend who comes to visit over the festive season then a Bop It XT will certainly do that.
Here's how it works: there are four handles with a 'task' on each end - flick it, spin it, twist it and pull it, then in the middle is a big button to BOP IT!
You can play as one player or with three others and as the music plays you will be given instructions to either twist, pull, spin, flick or BOP IT! Fail to perform the correct task in the correct order and in the correct time the you're OUT; the more sequences you perform correctly the faster and faster the music goes.
I loved playing Bop It and just telling you about it makes me want to go and find ours and play it again; plenty of hours will be spent messing around on a Bop It XT if you have one, for kids and adults it's just too much fun and a bargain at £17.99 instead of £24.99.
