Product Description

Amazon.com

The classic carnival game of Whac-a-mole comes right into your house in this energetic and highly silly home version. The inherent cruelty of this game is tempered considerably by how much fun the moles appear to be having while receiving repeated blows to the head with big plastic mallets. It must help that each mole gets to wear a helmet, each a different color. One to four players can join in by whacking the critter in front of them during the "sign in" period at the beginning of the game. The object of the game, naturally, is to whack the moles as they pop up and players can choose to have them light up or not. Parents should be aware of course that they are giving big plastic mallets to very young children and the result will almost certainly be that one kid whacks another before too long. It’s just bound to happen. But if those energies can be re-directed toward the moles, this is a fun and silly way to play inside. --Charlie Williams

Product Description

Grab a mallet and see if you can pop the mole back into its hole. Listen for the right sound, watch for the light and whack that surfacing mole on the head to win. Includes game unit, 4 mallets and instructions.

My son has been asking for this game for weeks, so we got it for him for Christmas. I admit, I thought it might be cheaply made, not to mention aggravating just by virtue of the "whacking".

The moles themselves do not pop up. Rather, a light under their helmets go off, as well as a specific sound (for the easy game). For the hard game, it's sound only.

Initially, there is a "sign in" period where you whack the mole that you want to be yours. This tells the game how many are playing (unless you chose the solo game). You are then told to listen for the sound of your particular mole. Each game, the sound is different. It could be a bird whistle, a cat's meow, a dog bark, Duh!, Yoohoo!, Yeah!, etc. You're then told to listen for the bonus sound.

You get a point when you whack your own mole, as well as when you whack your mole when the bonus sound is made. At the end of the game, you're told who won, and how many points each player got.

My son is 6, and is sometimes not quick enough. But this game is great for reflexes, hand/eye coordination, etc. It's a blast to play, and my son enjoys it, too...sometimes even requesting the hard version! (although it's even more challenging for him to play audio only). Because the sounds change every game, it teaches listening skills and keeps the game fresh.

The plastic hammers are really soft, so they won't do a whole lot of damage should your child choose to use them elsewhere! We've banged the heck out of this game so far, and have had no trouble with its performance...it works perfectly.

Highly recommended!

This was a birth day gift for my 3 yr old daughter. It has 3 options to play "solo", "easy" and "hard" (for advanced players). She loved the game! But after an hour of playing the "easy" option, it stopped playing!

It did not fall and she did not "wack" it that hard (afterall the game is supposed to be sturdy). The only option that would play (after 4 new battery changes) was "hard". I'm so sad, I now have to send this gift back to Amazon and hopefully get another.

I bought this toy for my 4year olds birthday. We didn't even have it 3 days and it quit working properly. We replaced the batteries several times, but it still quit working. I returned the item to the store and exchanged it for a new one, but the 2nd one we had also quit working properly. My husband and I were playing with both our children, and none of us were hitting it very hard. We are very dissappointed that a game that costs this much can quit working after a few times. I would not recommend buying this.

This was a gift for my 3 yr old son. The entire family enjoyed playing it together on vacation.

You can play it together, or alone.

When playing it alone, it will teach hand-eye coordination.

He really enjoys it!

Well, If your idea of a game is giving kids a hammer and wacking at stuff I guess this would be okay, It looks like it would hold up. But I found the kids were excited about it at first, but then became easily bored of it. I think 20 dollars is too much for it. And there are a lot better games out there. I would consider this more a toy that you pound on than a game, just my opinion.

This would be Okay for 2 to 4 year olds, but be prepared for your child 4 and older to become bored quickly and wish to play a game that requires more rules and interaction.

I recommend, Dot the Dog by Playschool, Get better Bear by fisher price, Let's go Fishing, Candy Land, Hi-ho Cherry- O, Connect 4 and Letter factory board Game by Leapfrog.

Bought this at an outlet for $6 or 8 bucks. The name was vaguely familiar and liked the idea of an action game. We have had no problems for 9 months, still working great. The time element brings out the competative spirit (watch those fingers). My spouce and I play regularly and it has held up fine. It is still a fun break from too many educational toys, and still promotes speed and real focus. Our 4 and 6 year olds cannot play each other because the older one will bully the younger until she just stops. Like every other game, parental involvement is needed (such a pity so many find this a negative). Worth a try for a competative, energetic kid!

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS GAME!!!!

I bought this game for a birthday gift for my 3 year old and after a month it just quit working in the middle of a game. It just got slower and slower until it quit. I tried new batteries and it did nothing. We may have played it five times in the month that he had it. I called Hasbro and they said they would send me a replacement but the game was back ordered and could take several months for me to receive it. My son was crushed that it did not work so I went out and bought him a new one. I decided that when the replacement one came from Hasbro I would just give it as a gift, I mean what are the chances of getting two games that don't work. We played the new one a couple of times the day I purchased it and put it back in the box and up in the closet. We got it out today and only the solo and hard levels work. I changed the batteries and still only had two levels working. Ironically we received the one that was back ordered today and it seems to work fine right now so I was spared having to see him disappointed again. I placed another call to Hasbro and asked them if they had any other complaints or had any recalls on the game I told them this was the second Whac-A-Mole that I have had problems with. They acted like I was the first person with a problem with it. They would not replace this game. I wish that I had read the reviews on this game prior to buying it and I hope my review will discourage someone from buying it now! Do not disappoint your child with this game.
