Dear Mummy, we had a really good giggle with a ‘jiggle’ recently when we were sent a Jitterbug to review. Jitterbug is a game from University Games and its a large plastic jittery spider which jumps around. The aim of the game is to try to attach your coloured legs to the Jitterbug while it vibrates across the table.
Up to four players can participate and each player gets four coloured legs to attach in order to win the game. You may think this is easy but it’s super hard…and fun. Even when you hook the legs on the spider they fall off with all the Jittering. We’d definitely recommend playing the game on a flat surface and on the floor as it moves a lot!
Inside the box the Jitterbug comes in pieces which is easy to make. You’ll need a small screwdriver to add the 2 x AA batteries (not supplied). There are four x 4 coloured legs for each player, along with a hat and 4 green legs with are fixed to the spiders body. The green legs stay on and make the Jitterbug bounce up and down. The hat acts as the activation button. Once you’ve put the Jitterbug together you have to push down on the hat (with a bit of force) to get your Jitterbug to move
Jitterbug is aimed at children over the age of 4 but we think its fun for the whole family! My mummy certainly found it entertaining! Check out our video below!
So what do you think of the Jitterbug Game?! I bet it would be a lot of fun at parties and with lots of players. We’re going to get it out at Christmas with the family. You can find it online from £14.99 and its available to buy in all good toy shops.
Love Bella x
