Poppin Hoppies

Need a game that’s bursting with as much energy as your kid? Poppin Hoppies is up to the challenge. It’s simple to set up and easy to play. Arm the board with the spring-loaded “Hoppies”, and see how many you can catch as they pop up from the game board. Just be careful what color you catch! To win the game you must collect the right combination of parts and colors from the center pile. This group game is a fantastic way to build hand-eye coordination and reflexes, all while helping kids learn colors and practice pattern recognition. (University Games, $26.12)
