Crocodile Dinner game **REVIEW**

Now the kids are getting a little older we have made Saturday night games night in our house!

Both the kids love playing games and the idea of a "late night" so since they don't have school the next day we decided setting a little bit of time aside on a Saturday evening would be perfect. Its a great opportunity for us all to sit around together away from the screens, mobiles and technology and have great fun playing games and enjoying conversation.

Of course this means we are always on the look out for new games to enjoy and when the opportunity came up to try out Crocodile Dinner from Sambro I just had to say yes, it looked like so much fun!.

Inside the box you will find 3 colourful plastic croc masks and 13 foam fishes (4 blue, 4 purple and 4 green as well as one orange/golden fish). Each player fits themselves with a mask which fit over the head and are secured with elastic. Someone will then shout "ready, steady, go!" and throw the fishes up in the air. All crocs need to me on the floor (hands and knees) and try to catch all the fish that match the colour of their masks. Once a player has managed to snap up all their coloured fish the first one to snap up the golden/orange fish is the winner. But remember you can't use your hands only your croc jaws.

The masks fit around your head with the croc jaws coming in two parts with the bottom part fitting underneath your chin and the top part resting on top of your nose and over your cheeks. There are small foam pads to make sure the mask is comfy to wear and the elastic is easy to adjust to get the perfect fit. The croc jaws should snap open and closed when you open and close your own mouth (so you can catch the fish!) and its important you adjust your mask with the elastic so its fit properly so you can play.

The masks fit the kids better obviously but still fit both myself and my husband with a bit of adjustment so its definitely a game for all ages. Crocodile Dinner is tons of fun and is such a fast paced game that had us all in fits of giggles. Its the perfect game for children who don't like waiting turns or who have a short attention span too as everyone plays at once and as the game is so fast paced it is over pretty quickly.

We loved that this game required no batteries and was quick and easy to set up, play and pack away after. It is advised the game is for 5+ however Evelyn is almost 4 and had lots of fun playing with a little guidance. As well as being tons of fun the Crocodile dinner game is great for improving motor skills and encouraging imaginative play. Its a game that's guaranteed to have you all laughing and smiling as you chomp down like crocs!

Do you think this is a game your family would love too?
