Product Description

Jam Pack JAM is a hilarious game of precarious packing possibilities. In this high-energy challenge, you must race against the clock to pack the trunk of a toy car with fun objects of all shapes and sizes. When time runs out, the trunk "pops," sending everything out the door and filling the room with outrageous giggly laughter. Truck measures 9"L.

Jam Pack Jam from the award-winning Cranium offers hours of explosive fun! Recommended for kids ages six and up, this high-energy game is a race against the clock as players attempt to pack the trunk of a toy car before it pops open.

How to Play
An interesting twist on high-intensity children's games, Jam Pack Jam is a cross between a 3-D puzzle and a beat-the-clock board game. It only takes two people to play -- but more can join in the fun.



Try to pack the trunk with as many fun and wacky items as possible. View larger.
Unlike many games that aim at specific skill sets, this Cranium game creates positive excitement for all kids. The object of the game is simple -- to fit as many fun items as possible, of all shapes and sizes, into the trunk before time runs out. On each turn, players say the number of objects they think they can precariously pack. When time's up, the trunk shoots everything out the doors -- filling the room with laughter.

Everything -- Even the Kitchen Sink
With 14 hilarious objects you'd find in a cartoon, Jam Pack Jam includes a birthday cake, a cactus, a skateboard, even a kitchen sink. Made with durable plastic, the car and the trunk items are child-safe and can stand up to long hours of play -- and all the explosions! The game also comes with 35 cards and a score pad.

It is alot of fun for the whole family.

The trunk doesn't always register (even if you only put one item in and close it) and therefore says you have to try again.

He has enjoyed it just as much as my 6 year old.

I bought this toy as a gift for my 4 year old for him and his 6 year old brother to play. Well, the entire family got in on the action and it was lots of fun. The car is durable, but make sure you keep the enclosed bag for the cards and the items to pack or else.... Not a superior learning game but it does require some concentration and fine motor skills to pack all of the items in the trunk before time runs out. Overall, I would recommend this toy! It got lots of laughs on a rainy day.

Being a big fan of Cranium products, I bought this game for my 8 year old for her birthday and WOW! it brought everyone from 5 years old to 65 to the table and/or floor to stuff the parts in the trunk before the time ran out! great fun and laughs! love that there is a bag for all parts. the kids made up versions of the game within days, and then used the van and parts for pretend play as well. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!

Got this game for the family for christmas. The idea is a good one but I think the makers fell short of "completing" the game which could have been alot better. After one game we found out that it would be more fun if we added to the game. We gave different point values (1, 2, and 3) to each piece and gave a bonus if you were able to use all of your cards. This made the game more competitive and fun for everyone. in our first game you would see us shying away from the bg yellow chair and in the second game when it was worth 3 points and a possible bonus we got creative on how to use it.

I think the inventors dropped the ball on what a really good game this could have been. Once we altered it, it was alot of fun!

My whole family has enjoyed this game. Within minutes of taking it out of the box, we had it on the table and playing our first game. My 13 year olds comments about before i bought it was, "that game looks stupid, all you do is put the pieces in." He has enjoyed it just as much as my 6 year old. It is setup to be challenging enough for a 6, 13, or 38 year old. The game plays in about 20 minutes, and there is never a dull moment. Like the other reviewer said, make sure and keep the enclosed zip lock bag, for the pieces. I am going to purchase a small plastic storage box to keep it in.

I bought this last night for my kids and they had a blast! My 2 year old has already lost some of the parts, so we will be searching for them tonight. I am really pleased with this game, it will be fun for the whole family!

Bought this game right after Christmas for my 6 year old son. He has motor skill problems and wasn't reading yet so I needed a simple game to learn and fun enough that a very active kid would want to sit down with. My main concern was that the music would be loud and intensify with the count down of time. No need to fear, the music is fun and catchy, not annoying and there is no anxiety caused by ticking clocks or anything.

My son likes to play this game and is learning to take turns, encouraging others, fine motor skills, and problem solving. This game may not teach a child the important lessons of life or how to divide by pie, but it's aces in my book!! He will even come inside in the evenings and pull it out to play by himself. He's still convinced that all the pieces will fit in the trunk with enough practice (they won't). (But try to tell a 6 year old boy that-they like a challenge.)

Things to know, trunk ejection spring wears out with much forcing of all objects. It still makes a "sproing" sound in the music when the time is up so no concerns there. Do keep the plastic bag to hold all the parts, once the box is opened it won't work for storage. We have been playing the game pretty regularly for 6+ months and haven't replaced the original batteries yet.

I will definately buy more Cranium games in the future!!

My car was broken with an electrical problem that heated up the batteries to a hot to the touch temp within the first 15 minutes of trying to get the thing to work. Glad I persisted in troubleshooting before the kids got a hold of the game. This toy was destined to melt or worse had the kids been cut loose on the toy before a parent could look it over. Parents beware!! YIKES!

I have mixed reviews on this Cranium product. Purchased after reading it was a "hot toy" for this season but found I'm rather luke-warm on it. First off, there is NO box to store this in! And the zip lock bag it comes in is a joke so be prepared to find something else to put all the parts and the SUV in. Secondly, ours doesn't always work properly. The trunk doesn't always register (even if you only put one item in and close it) and therefore says you have to try again. Thirdly, after a few rounds it becomes rather boring b/c you can quickly find out how to pack the items each time. Lastly, the price for this is way too high!

I'm hoping the folks at Cranium get back on track. I bought the Sounds of Seashore Game before this one and it also is a big DUD. Don't buy that one!
