Electronic Don’t Laugh Review and Competition

My two boys enjoyed this game from Drumond Park (RRP £19.99), it is aimed at children 8+ but being 6 and 5 did not hold them back in the slightest.  


Quite the reverse eldest very much likes telling jokes so he was keen to learn some new ones.  It is good to see him reading through the joke cards to increase his vocabulary and he enjoys having some extra ones he can share with his friends.


Youngest could not quite manage the joke cards, but he had lots of fun with the prop mic, pressing all the buttons and doing his own funny faces to the sounds.  Both boys laughed over the noses coming from it.  Farts, burps and silly sayings.  Being young boys everything is about poo at the moment, so hearing “smelly plop plop” and “stinky poo-poo” had them creasing up in laughter.

As you go around the board you have a chance to say your own joke, one you make up yourself or know already.  It was interesting hearing what my 5 year old would come up with… but my eldest at 6 (almost 7) knew a couple of his own already.

The boys liked the toilet humour element of the game and trying to keep a straight face so as not to give away any free moves to anyone.  If your joke/comic attempt makes the other players laugh or even smile then you earn a move forward per player.  

But I found it tricky because even when they really weren’t particularly funny I had to laugh because they were trying so hard; I did not want to hurt their feelings, they looked so sad if no one giggled on their turn!  Although no one felt bad if I stayed put!

For stockists visit http://www.drumondpark.com but also whilst I have your attention you can fill out the rafflecopter below to enter a competition to win your own copy.  The competition will close on the 28th of May.
