We are still loving being part of the Hasbro Toy Tribe and this week we have another new toy review for you. Simon Air is the latest take on the classic Simon game of the 70’s/80’s. Reinvented for a new generation Simon can be found in many different forms you can get Simon, Simon2, Simon Stix, Simon Tricks, Bounce and Rewind.
These were followed by Flash, Swipe and now Simon Air. Despite being a child of the ’80’s I don’t remember ever having a Simon of my own and in recent years I have seen them becoming more and more popular. This is totally the type of toy that would keep myself and Olivia amused, and frustrated for hours on end.
So basically all you have to do is master the moves to beat the game. Simon Air can be played as a solo, two player or classic game. Just follow the colours and you’re good to go. We both have shockingly bad hand eye coordination so this is going to be fun! This is exactly the type of game that would go down well at our family get togethers as an alternative to our usual Monopoly or Bingo!
If truth be told Olivia pulled a face when this turned up. Then she got curious. Then she got hooked. You literally just pop you hand in the circle or around the edge next to the colours to follow the pattern. Easy right! Maybe not. With so many different settings to play, single player, multi player, this can keep the whole family entertained for hours.
After talking to my friend recently about it, after a demonstration from Olivia of course, she thinks it would be perfect for people who need some help keeping their memory alive (that includes me). By following a seemingly easy pattern of colours this game is great for anyone who wants to keep their mind active, improve their hand eye coordination or basically just beat the system!
I hoped it would be a great game and I wasn’t disappointed, don’t tell Olivia but I am so practising it when she isn’t around and one day…….one day I will beat her!
Check out this little video I filmed as she attempted to beat Simon at his own game instead of getting her back backpack like I asked. Apologies for the non professional standard, Zoella I am not!
Simon Air is a great game for people of all ages and we love it, it’s quickly become one of Olivia’s favourite toys. My only issue is no volume control. If there is I haven’t found it and it is a bit on the loud side for me now I’m getting on a bit 😉 Simon Air is available to buy from Argos for £24.99 and also leading toy retailers too.
