With our busy two-working-parents schedule, I feel like we really have to work hard to get everyone together to have a relaxing evening at home playing games. We absolutely love playing board games together, but I don’t want it to be something that causes me additional stress, which is why I love Patch Products games so much! Their games don’t require a lot of set-up time and you can get right to playing and enjoying the time with your family!
Patch Products sent me a new game a few weeks ago, Flying Kung Fu Frogs, a game I was super excited to play with my boys, Miles and Spencer. Spencer, our 3.5 year old, is ALL BOY and loves kickin’ and “huh–huuuuwah!”ing around the house as if he is a martial arts superstar.
The game combines those little frogs that you push with one finger to make them hop with rotating platforms that you try to get your frogs to land on. The different platforms and the playing area are good for different numbers of points. Each player gets a set of frogs (all one color) and when everyone is ready, you turn on the rotating part and everyone plays at once. Yes, you can knock other players’ frogs off of their platforms with your own frogs and they lose those points!
We had so much fun playing Flying Kung Fu Frogs! Spencer is a little young for it and doesn’t quite have the strength in his fingers to make his frogs hop right, but Miles (5) was able to get his frogs hopping all over the place! He had a little trouble aiming, but he loved playing! Spencer became our stray frog finder, a job he thoroughly enjoyed! We laughed so hard as our frogs went flying across the table, landing on each other at times!
After a few rounds, my boys were ready to move on, but my husband and I played another game or two (I totally think he was cheating somehow 🙂 ) because it’s just that much fun! It’s easy to become very competitive and want to keep playing until you score big!
Here’s a video of the game being played at Toy Fair 2013:
Have fun playing and watch out for those flying frogs!
