Wet Head and Air Storm Z-Tec Bow Review
If you asked my children what their favourite part of having a blogger for a mum is, no doubt they would tell you that getting to try out toys and games for the blog is definitely the best part. I can see their point, as a child I would've loved receiving things like this in the post...
I had to hold them back so that I could get some photos of the toys before they got stuck into playing!
Wet Head was the first to be unpacked. This is the game that is poised to replace Pie Face in 2016 so we had high expectations.
So what's in the box?
- Water Tank
- 8 Pins
It was really simple to set up and once we'd filled the tank up with water, we were ready to play.
We had a few practice games indoors before taking it over to my parents house where we played it in the garden - it's a brilliant game to play outside on a warm day!
Once the hat is in place, you spin the spinner and follow the instructions.
In my opinion the anticipation is what makes this game so exciting, wondering if the pin you're pulling out is going to get you drenched or not. If you manage to avoid a soaking then you can pass the hat onto the next player.
Although the game is aimed at children aged 4+, E wanted to play too (and no, she didn't get wet)!
There was lots of laughter when the wrong pin was pulled and that player got wet, especially when it was Grandad.
There is another twist. Players have the option to play with the included spinner or download the free Wet Head Challenge app and ask each trivia questions. Players can also create their own way to challenge family and friends!
The Wet Head Challenge app is available on iOS and Android. It includes fun trivia questions and a special recording feature. The record feature allows players to capture every drenching moment and share their videos on YouTube or social media. Use #WetHeadChallenge to join in on the splash of fun and to see what others are posting!
Next up was the Air Storm Z-Tec Bow.
The box contained the bow and three arrows.
We also took this to my parents house because their garden is bigger than ours and we thought we'd be less likely to lose the arrows. Hmm, unfortunately that wasn't the case because T shot the very first arrow straight into the neighbours garden!
Luckily my parents have friendly neighbours so we soon retrieved the arrow and play continued.
There were two whistling arrows and one with a suction cup. Each arrow has two hooks which you can clip straight onto the bow making it quick and easy to load.
Other than E, we all had a go with this too and I'm actually not sure who enjoyed it more - the children or the adults!
Shooting the arrows straight up into the air proved to be one of the most popular activities with the Air Storm Z-Tec Bow.
It can travel distances of 100 feet so it was really interesting to see it flying high into the sky (and trying to guess where it would land).
This is recommended for children aged 8+ and is priced £19.99rrp.
I would recommend both of these toys if you're looking for some fun, new games this summer. I particularly loved their versatility, how we could play with each item in so many different ways.
Do you already own either of these products or do you think your family would enjoy them as much as mine has? I'd love to hear from you.
I received these products for review purposes. I am always honest in my reviews and all opinions are my own or that of my family.
