When we were offered the chance to review something fun for the garden by Big Game Hunters it didn’t take me long to decide on a giant tower game as we play the normal size Jenga quite regularly and the kids really enjoy it. I chose the Jumbo Hi-Tower as my 4 yr old daughter is only little and I wanted her to be included in the game. This set has blocks sized 15cm x 5cm x 3cm and builds a tower starting at 0.6m tall and can go up to 1.56m as the blocks are placed on top during the game. There are bigger versions available for you to choose so if you had a really big garden (which we don’t anymore) or wanted to play with older children/adults then you could go for the really big ones!
The blocks come in a handy reusable storage bag so there’s no worrying about losing bits or trying to find somewhere to store it. It also means you can carry it, so great for taking to the park or perhaps to a family barbecue once the weather warms up a bit!There are 58 blocks in total and they are made from solid pine wood from sustainable sources. The blocks as you can see are actually quite pretty to look at and they are all smooth so no nasty bits for fingers.
The kids found it easy to take the blocks out of the bag and build the start tower and they knew exactly what to do, if you’ve never played it the idea is you take it in turns to remove a block from the tower and place it on the top. If your kids are anything like mine they’ll enjoy taking the daftest pieces to make it as precarious as possible but it does make it good fun!
As you can see the blocks aren’t overly huge and I felt they were the right size for our garden and children. They really enjoyed playing with the game and it’s a good way to get the kids out in the fresh air – although we did have to time it right playing as here in Wales we tend to get an awful lot of rain!
The Jumbo Hi-Tower is available for a very reasonable £19.99. There are lots of other fun items available on the website too – outdoor games, swings, trampolines to name but a few. I actually think the WigWams look like great fun too.
*we were gifted the game for the purpose of this review however all opinions remain honest and my own*
