Little Tikes Kids vs Adults Game Challenge

Pre-kids our weekends were all about getting dressed up for fancy restaurants, drinking cocktails til the early hours, and sleeping off a hangover every Sunday. Fast forward five children later and there is genuinely nothing I love more than putting on a fresh pair of pyjamas, ordering a take away, and playing games with the kids. So when Little Tikes asked us to take part in their Kids vs Adults Game Challenge, I knew that it was pretty much our idea of the perfect night in.

We are big fans of Little Tikes and their games are always fun. Crazy Toaster is a fun family game for four players where the idea is to catch the toasted bread as it pops out of the toaster.

Each player takes a pan and once all of the toast cards are placed into the toaster, the first player pushes the toaster’s nose down to start the timer for the first round.

Each player has to use their pan to catch the flying toast and try to match the pieces to their own playing board.

The children absolutely loved it when the toaster started popping, especially as the stinky fish toast came flying out – one to avoid if you really want to win!

I’ll be honest, there are some games which really start to grate on me after a while – games which are too complicated, have too many pieces, or drag on for hours – and yet Crazy Toaster was so much fun and honestly had us all in stitches trying to leap around catching the pieces.

I also loved that, although catching the pieces took some skill, it was also a game of chance, meaning that at 4 Harry had just as much chance of winning as Eva at 6. As much as my children love to play games, they do get super competitive and this usually ends in someone complaining if they never have the chance to win!

I think it’s safe to say that Crazy Toaster is a firm favourite in our house, and even though the children won, I was determined that the adults would fight back! While we waited for our take away to be delivered we decided to try the next game from Little Tikes, Crazy Blender!

Crazy Blender is a hilarious game for all the family where you each test your luck as the fruit card is put into the blender.

Players take turns feeding the blender matching fruit cards following on from the card before, so if you put in an apple and strawberry card, the player after you will have to put in a card with one of those fruits on too.

It’s a really simple idea and the children soon got the hang of it and, again, it’s pot luck as to who wins as the cards are chosen at random.

I love games like this which help the children to learn about pairing and also for younger children learning to recognise colours and fruit.

The fun part is that the blender will randomly spit cards back out and so whoever’s turn it is may end up with even more cards than they started with!

The winner is the first person to lose all of their cards, and surprise surprise, the children won hands down!!

We had such a fun night with our Little Tikes games challenge and definitely recommend both games, priced at just £12.99 each. The children were so happy to have beat us grown ups but at least we had a delicious take away arrive to soften the blow!

    I love it when parents encourage their kids to play with real toys rather than digital games!

    Very refreshing to see them playing with games instead of an iPad. It’s more stimulating and bonding. This looks quite cool – xmas pressie idea

    I like such games, when we were young we used to play lots of games at home with my parents. This seems like a nice game

    We love playing board games with our children but as yours, they tend to get very competitive in particular my son.
    So we try to team up to help with that. I am sure they will love trying Crazy Toaster.
