Pumpaloons £7.50 @ Tesco
How's your sanity fairing now we're coming up to half way through the summer holidays? Are you counting down the days until the kids go back to school and wondering what on earth you can keep them entertained with, that doesn't cost an arm and a leg (and possibly half of the other arm too), until then?
This cheap, cheerful and FUN Pumpaloons game may just be able to come to your rescue. Pumpaloons is a nice simple game for your kids to play - there are no pieces to be lost, no arguements over who's going to be banker (and then get accused of stealing money when no one's looking), it's just nice and straightforward.
The aim of the game is simple: take out the two inflatable characters and two pumps and the person who fully inflates their Pumpaloons person first is the winner!
I do like games like this - they're silly, have the potential to produce lots of silly giggling and they can be quite physically demanding (especially if you have competitive little offspring!) - if you've ever blown up an air bed then you'll know what I mean, let alone trying to do it in record time so you beat everyone else!
Tired kids mean 'early to bed and quickly asleep kids' and in the remaining, often torturous, weeks before they all go back to school (YIPPEEEE!) this can only be a good thing.
