In the box there is the bin and the paper. You have to construct the bin before you can play the game, but it is simple to put together. The construction took us less than two minutes. Once built, the next step is to roll up all the paper into balls. The you are ready to play! Each player takes their own colour of paper and the aim is to throw your paper into the bin. Speedy Bin runs on batteries and as the game is played he moves about the floor with his lid opening and closing. The end of the game is when the bin stops running around and the one who has managed to throw the most balls of paper into the bin is the winner.
The Monkey and the Mouse both love the game and want to play it over and over again. There has been no falling out over the rules or who has won, just a shout of ‘let’s play again’ when a game ends.
It is a great game, simple to play but so full of fun – it’s gets the kids running about and laughing (a lot). I found it fun to watch too, both of them trying to plan where the bin will go next but being too excited not to throw the balls of paper quickly.
I would recommend this game; it is aimed at ages 4 years up and I think it is brilliant for different aged children to be able to play together. The only downside I have is that once built the bin doesn’t fit back into the box for storage…but all the paper fits in the bin so it becomes its own storage, so it is not really a problem.
I love that my two laugh so much whilst playing this and it is something that we can play too!
