My boys up until now have never been overly interested in football but with the excitement behind Euro 2016 that all seems to be quickly changing. They have started asking to watch matches on television and have bought the Euro 2016 sticker book and are spending 50p’s at an alarming rate trying to get more stickers they need.
So as you can imagine this delivery from John Adams was very well timed; Total Action Football (RRP £26.99) has been very well received here.
Whether your children are BIG football fans or not they will enjoy the fast paced play. It was nice seeing hubbie get enthusiastic too (he’s not much of a sports fan normally); he had a game with eldest and took it very seriously! They played 15 mins each way, swapped sides and even asked for a snack at half time!!! A fair few games later they only stopped play as we were going out, Total Action Football is the perfect entertainment for my boys.
It was easy enough to set up you just stretch out the pitch and pin it into place adding the plastic sides, so your children (or the adults!) can enjoy the game without unnecessary delay. The boys even helped with setting up, eldest knew which way the goal needed to go in before hubbie!
Once you have finished your football match for the day you can either dismantle it simply enough and store in the box or we managed to carry it off the table ready to play again tomorrow. I do not think we will be putting it away for some time.
It’s worth reading the rules before you first play as it makes it an exciting game with a bit more structure. It’s very realistic, in that you can pass, trap and shoot the ball with the clever magnetic action. For the price its very well made.
Total Action Football is for two – four players so it’s ideal for our family size or for the boys to play with a couple of friends. So far it seems good quality and I think they will get a lot of play out of it.
