Product Description

It's a barrel of fun for the whole family! Push the pirate into his barrel, select your favorite color swords, then take turns sliding a sword into the barrel slots. But beware - if the pirate pops up you're out! The last remaining player is the winner. Ages 4 and up years. Packaging: 8.50" x 6" x 10.75".

Pop Up Pirate! promises hours of amusement. After all, who doesn't like to see a pirate get shot out of a barrel? The game is simple. The unlucky pirate is pushed into the top of a brown plastic barrel, readying the spring mechanism for his eventual launch. Players then take turns pushing colorful plastic swords into holes on the side of the barrel, one by one until finally someone releases the spring and sends the poor little pirate on his way. Whoever makes the pirate pop loses, until the next round at any rate. The game includes a blue plastic base, the brown barrel (the sort that pirates would use for grog), and 24 plastic swords--six each of yellow, red, green, and blue. There's also lots of stickers of birds, smiling sharks, and even an ogling octopus, although they don't stay stuck very well. The pirate himself has a big black mustache and wears an eye patch and a purple plastic scarf over his head. Luckily, he doesn't seem to mind getting jounced around so much, since he also has a gigantic, if somewhat cautious, grin. --David Morel

I am a Speech Therapist and this game is GREAT to use in therapy.

I wish the barrel was attached to the base and a little heavier with a non-slip bottom so we wouldn't have to hold it down every time someone puts a sword in.

I would recommend this for anyone with kids as a fun easy game to understand.

I'm a speech/language therapist, working with pre-schoolers age 3-5. They love this game! The anticipation of the pirate popping holds their interest (long enough to do their therapy) and they don't have to wait long for another turn. I wasn't thrilled about taking a toy with swords to school, but have only had to tell them once that "we don't fight with them, they're for the game." It has been frequently used, not treated too gently, but it is still in excellent working condition. I do not use the blue base included with the game, it seems unnecessary and only seems to make the game easier to tip over. The kids don't think they lose when the pirate pops, they think they won! Sometimes he jumps out on the first sword stuck in the barrel, other times it might be the last one! (I have no idea how this happens!) This is a very good beginner game, for learning turn-taking, although it is not particularly educational.

This game is a really good one. There is no reading involved and it goes by pretty quickly so you don't have to much whining in between turns. It is really funny to watch our kids (ages 5 and 9 months) scream in glee as the pirate pops out of his barrel. Set up is a breeze. The only problem we had is that one time we played and the pirate never popped out, even though all the swords were in place. We found out that someone didn't puch the sword in all the way, this would be something you would just have to make sure was done during wach turn. Other than that, this is a cool game and takes a pretty good beating with out breaking.

This game is pretty simple--you push down the pirate, put in the swords, and then take turns pulling out swords until the pirate pops out and someone loses. It has the same feel of Don't Break the Ice, but it doesn't require as much dexterity. This is the real beauty of Popup Pirate because it allows really young kids of 12-24 months to play with older kids and adults. Granted, our 2 and 5 year-old only stay interested for about 5 or 6 rounds, but that's 15 minutes of quality family fun time. ;-) Our kids ask to play this game with the entire family more than most of their other games. Another game similar to this for fun and ease of use for kids young and old is Crocodile Dentist (but that one's not for the overly cautious children).

Verified Purchase
This is a fun game for little ones, but it took me a little while to figure out how to make it random. When you load the pirate (without any swords in the barrel), you need to push down on the pirate lightly and then twist him around a few times. This moves the mechanism so each time it's different. Maybe I lost the instructions, but it certainly doesn't say this on the box! Initially, it was the same slot every time and I thought it was broken!

Rather than losing when the pirate pops up, my kids like it when they win. It sort of makes it more exciting for them.

I have two boys, ages 2 and 5, and it has been very hard to find games that my two year old could also play. We had really given up playing board type games until my two year received this for a Christmas present! This game is so easy (no reading and simple concept) and the kids love anticipating the pirate popping up! We call out the color of the swords and count how many we have put in etc. to bring in educational values. I admit I was hesitant about the game working since it requires no batteries (hooray) and I wondered about the durability. Well this game has exceeded all expectations and is truly a family favorite! GREAT GAME!

It's been a couple years since we owned this toy but I thought it was worth mentioning what I know about it. When we had this toy we had two boys 5 and 4. They loved to play the game and used it quite a bit for a couple months. But after awhile they figured out which spot would make the pirate jump up and then it lost all use. So depending on how observant your kids are you might have limited play time. I do kinda wish I still had it because now I have a new set of little ones that would enjoy it...but I wouldn't buy it again.

My four year old loves this game. We bought it for him when he was three and having a hard time focusing long enough to play most games. He loved the idea of playing a game, but couldn't make it through Candy Land or Chutes and Ladders. He still laughs every time the silly pirate pops up!

I purchased this game for my daughter's 4th birthday and she loves it. The object of the game is to NOT be the one to send the pirate sailing, but that is the best part! My daughter is thrilled if her sword sends him on his way and considers that she has won, so those are the rules we go by. It is such a simple game, yet it holds her attention and we play over and over. One thing about this game, parents can't "cheat" to ensure that the kids win....come on, you've done that. I do want to mention that the barrel will not stay on the base when you are inserting the swords because you do have to apply some good pressure to get the swords in all the way. We tried it without the base too, but either way you have to hold the barrel firmly while inserting the swords. Just make sure the little ones aren't leaning over the pirate while doing this, they don't need to end up with an eye patch too. Another thing is that you have to apply the stickers to the barrel and the base. No biggy unless you are very particular about such things, as I am. I should have cut them out with the backing still on to check the placement, but I didn't so the stickers on the top of the base are off center (spilling over the side) and don't match up as they should. While my sticker placement is not aesthetic, the game is still a barrel of fun!
