Recently I told you about the Holiday Toyland Event that I planned to attend last Saturday with my boys when sharing my Holiday Traditions with you. Well, we went and it was a success and while there, we purchase the Simon Swipe.
Recap of the Holiday Toyland Event
On Saturday, the boys and I headed up to Walmart for the Holiday Toyland Event. I was not 100% sure what to expect. Once there we headed to the toy section and they had a little booth set up, which featured the Simon Swipe, the New Bright R/C Pro Reaper, and a new Ninja Turtles Toy. Of course, my boys had to test out all three of the toys and they were especially interested in the New Bright R/C Pro Reaper and Simon Swipe. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see additional photos from the event.
My oldest son told me immediately that he wanted the Simon Swipe for Christmas. Well, it was his lucky day because we ended up going home with that one.
Simon Swipe Review
As an adult, I must say that the Simon Swipe is a super cool toy. I had the original Simon game when I was a kid and this is definitely a new and improved version from the one that I was used to growing up. The best part is it is a game that they boys can take turns playing with together or we can play it as a family.
Simon Swipe is recommended for children ages 8 and older. However, my five year old was able to master the concept of the game in no time at all. My three year old also knows how to play it but my two year old just like pressing any old button.
In my opinion, Simon Swipe is a great game for younger kids. This is because it can teach them without them feeling like they are learning. Like the traditional Simon game, the kids have to follow what Simon does so it is enforcing how to follow instructions while also helping them improve their memory.
Overall, we are very happy with the Simon Swipe and I am sure there are many kids who would love to wake up to this game under the tree on Christmas.
Did you play Simon when you were a kid?
