With more things to do - including the new Shake-It, this version is a little more challenging that past Bop-Its, and our testers loved it. A great take-it-anywhere toy that's both a fun solitarie challenge and great for group play.
WHAT THE KIDS SAY
This is a very challengeing game to play. I think Bop It should come with an easier beginer level. I like that it has lots of versions.
It was a lot of fun. I liked the challenge. I liked that I could use my hands to do the movements, flick, twist, etc
Bop-it is really fun to play and it works really well except shake-it doesn't work as well because you really have to shake it so we didn't use shake-it. I like that you can play it by yourself or with other people and that there are alot of different levels. I like that there are alot of different games to play. It's more of a challenge than the other versions because it has more things to do.
Difficult, frustrating, fun and addictive. I love it even though I am not very good at it.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
This is a really fun toy. It is very simple in the concept - just follow the instruction - a modern day Simon game. But it is very challenging.
We still haven't managed to get over 100 to unlock the next level.
The only complaint I have about it is that the voice is sometimes difficult to hear when there are other sounds going on in the room - this is even when we turn the volume up.
This is our third bop-it and my kids (F9, F13, M15) still love it. This version has more things to move, so it is a bit more challenging than the earlier versions, but once they get the hang of it, they are bopping, flicking pulling etc. with the best of them.
It's been a hit in our house- lots of fun and a challenge to beat your record! Definitely something I would consider purchasing (a great gift for 8-12 year olds!). It would be better if there were easier levels so that my younger kids could play it without getting frustrated.
I absolutely love this toy and plan on buying a few as gifts! i was able to beat bop it after a few days of playing a lot. The different levels are very challenging but addictive! You really need to be in a quiet area to play it or you lose concentration. I love that its portable and i enjoyed challenging other family members with it. The batteries are lasting forever!
After final play, the toy did have a bit more appeal with my kids. It wasnt their favourite game but they did like how they could play together on this one vs. the older model Bop It that was really only one player at a time, and had less features. It is a well made toy, very compact and travel friendly. Challenges you and is a great stress buster!
Still love the concept, but find it a bit too fast for me. Great to have around the house and entertain adults as well as older children. Never made it past first stage, so can't comment on all stages.
An on-off button would be a nice addition.
It’s time to get moving. Can you keep up? When you turn it on, this totally cool Bop It game calls out commands. It’s up to you to “pull it”, “bop it”, “twist it” — or “flick it”, “spin it”, “shake it”! Can you keep up as the tempo revs?
Play Bop It! XT in party mode or solo — you can even plug in your headphones to keep the game all to yourself. Get it right and you can keep going, but if you get the moves wrong, your turn is up. Think you’ve got what it takes to beat it? Then, start the action!
