Decided to try out this game for my two boys; ages 6 and 8. They were excited to play from the moment they opened up the packaging and began reading the instructions to play. The set up is easy and you can play really anywhere you want. The boys took turns with each challenge: who gets to set it up and who gets to launch. It teaches them educational concepts without them even realizing (i.e. setting up the correct angles, using the right pressure to launch, the distance between the bucket and the launcher) It also helped them to work together to complete each challenge.

Something to note: when the boys initially started playing, they didn't realize that they had to stuff the ball inside the base of the launcher. You have to give it a little push rather that leaving the ball on top of the opening. Also, there is a tightening piece on the side of the launcher that will help if the launcher keeps moving around once you set up the correct angle.

It's been great fun and tons of laughs!

    Comments about Educational Insights Smash Pong! The Poppin' Challenge Game:

    This game comes with challenge cards for the kids to complete using the ping pong balls and air pump. They bounce the ball off walls, at different angles, etc. to land the ball in the bucket. My grandchildren love this toy and I have to admit I do, too!

      Comments about Educational Insights Smash Pong! The Poppin' Challenge Game:

      My boys, age 7 and 9, received this and love it. It's a fun outdoor game (or indoor, although the balls bounce off the walls and ceiling). They enjoy the challenges and say it's like playing "Dude Perfect". We wish the instructions were a little more clear (eg, how many tries does each person get, etc) but we just made up our own rules. It's hard to hit the bucket so we turned it into a team game where one person holds the bucket and the other launches the ball, and they try to catch it in the bucket. My husband enjoys it too. This is a good gift for kids who enjoy sports but already have all the standard sport equipment/toys/etc.

            My husband and I LOVE playing this game with our kiddos. You can see the wheels turning my kiddos' heads as they try to make corrections and problem solve in order to achieve the goal laid out on the card. Practical skills made SUPER fun!

              Handy built in storage bucket is terrific. My six year old loves it but is a little young to actually follow the cards. Both kids (6 & 8) have fun trying to beat each other at getting as many balls in the bucket as they can. Fun both on the floor and on the table. Great indoor toy for hot AZ summer days.

                This game is a blast! And it isn't just for kids. Adults will love this game, too. It is perfect for parties and outdoor festivities like barbecues and camp outs. The concept is really simple, but attempting to execute the challenges had us all laughing when we played it. It's harder than it looks!

                    Comments about Educational Insights Smash Pong! The Poppin' Challenge Game:

                    We got a new game from Educational Insights called Smash Pong. The kids love it! The concept is so simple. You place the ping pong ball inside the launcher, aim, hit the smash pad to make the ball fly and hope it goes in the bucket! It includes 20 cards, each with a different challenge on it (ex. hit the wall before landing in the bucket). What I love the most is that the kids can make up their own challenges very easily. They can play it together as a team, as competitors, or all by themselves. It is so versatile. Also love that everything stores inside the sturdy plastic bucket.
