If you have been listening to the radio, watching TV or generally have young children you can’t help but have heard of the game ‘Pull My Finger‘. Pull my Finger features Buster the monkey and the task is to pull his finger… hoping he doesn’t parp!
There’s something about toilet humour and jokes that children love and my three are no exception; they’ve heard this game being advertised on the radio and have been asking for it, so when I was asked if I’d like to review it I knew they’d love it! We have been gifted this item, hence the ‘ad’ marking. My full disclosure policy can be found here.
What’s in the Box?
Thankfully this game is SUPER quick to set up – there’s nothing like three excited and impatient children! Simply remove Buster from his packing, pop his feet into the stand, clip his bottom and tail in and you’re done.
There’s a spinner that comes in the box too, and this is used to determine what happens on your turn – how many time to pull his finger, miss a go, reverse play etc. There’s a spare bottom too – in case your children get a bit enthusiastic!
Playing the game.
The premise of the game is super simple. Spin the banana spinner and follow the instructions – you might get to pull his finger four times, or you might reverse the order of play. Each player takes their turn, and as they pull Buster’s finger, his bottom inflates more and more… until the inevitable happens. It’s quite funny when he parps and the children loved it and laughed a lot! Play then continues with the remaining players until there’s one person left.
The game is a lot of fun and all three children have played this, endlessly, since we got it a week ago. I’ve noticed that now we have played it more and more, his bottom seems to inflate even more – to the point where you’re sure it’s going to go on the next pull – but somehow manages to keep going!
I have to say I have been pretty impressed by this game – when I first heard about Pull My Finger I thought it might be a bit of a novelty thing that would keep their interest for a day or two, but they’re all played with it every day – even Daniel who usually hates to play games! It’s the perfect game for some light-hearted fun that will keep all the family laughing!
