Popn a Row
Pop’N A Row is a fun and innovative update to the traditional game of Tic-Tac-Toe. Testers liked Pop’N A Row for its ingenuity, interactive activity, small size, and carry-on handle feature. The game makes traveling or waiting (like in a doctor’s office) a lot more bearable for parent and child. The new game format that Reeve + Jones have devised is fun and enticing for little ones. Rather than the traditional “X’s” and “O’s”, the toy is housed in a tablet size package with nine dome squares. Each dome houses a die with animal pictures. The game is played by taking turns popping each dome until the selected animal appears, when you get three in a row, you win! Young children loved popping the dome and were thrilled when their favorite animal would appear. Parents were delighted to find a first game for toddlers that teaches them to follow rules, share and take turns. It also teaches the meaning of diagonals, rows, and columns, a nice educational plus.
