Summer Travel and Outdoor Games

6 in 1 game
We love taking games with us when we travel. This keeps everyone in our family engaged while travelling. Games always come in handy on rainy days, or when we look for something relaxing to do. This summer, we took a look at a few outdoor and travel games from Goliath Games and Pressman toys.  
zoom ball hydro
The Zoom Ball Hydro features 1 Zoom Ball Hydro and water balloons. This game is played with 2 players, ages 8 and up. The anticipation and excitement each time we play this game makes it one of our favourites.

To load the water balloons open the zoom ball by pressing down on the indent and twisting it. To close the ball once the water balloons are inserted, line up the two sides of the zoom ball and twist. Once it is loaded, hold on to one set of handles, while your friend holds the other, while both of you stand about 12 feet apart. Open your arms quickly to send the Zoom Ball over to your friend. The person closest to the ball starts by pulling their hands apart making the ball zoom to the other player, and the other player sends it back before it touches their handle. It is fun to be always alert trying to send the ball back, as we never know when the balloons will pop, and soak us. This is a lovely summer game to play outdoors. 
rocket fishing rod
Rocket Fishing Rod makes casting safe as the safety bobber which encloses the hook won't open until it hits the water eliminating snarls and snags. This fishing rod for children accurately casts its line up to 30 feet. Since it has an adjustable line stop, it allows us to fish in any depth of water. Once the bobber is in the water, the lure/bait compartment opens to drop the bait to the desired depth. There is a secret storage compartment built into the handle.

This is fun for children over 8 years, as it replaces standard kids fishing poles and takes the hassle out of fishing. It comes already assembled and ready to fish, so we just pull back to pump, launch, and reel in real fish. It is a great way to fish with the whole family joining in the fun. 
rocket fishing rod
The content includes Rocket Fishing Rod, 1 safety bobber, 2 hooks, 150 feet of 8-pound test fishing line, 2 line stops, 1 weight, and complete instructions.
itop goliath games pressman toys
i-Top is a new generation of tops for ages 7 and up. We love playing with this top, as it can be played in over ten different ways. This games uses smart technology and keeps track of the number of spins while the LEDs light up the display. 

Using this i-Top we can compete in multiple challenges, and unlock hidden features. For example, we can try to spin an exact number to display a special animation on the i-Top such as spinning a score of 214 will animate a cupid shooting a heart. The diameter of the top is 3.25″ and the head of the top folds in, so it can be easily taken with us to play solo anytime or to challenge a friend to get the highest score. It is available in this Vortex Red, or in Mega Gear Blue, and Infinite Purple and comes with complete instructions.
6 in 1 game
The 6 in 1 board games has 6 colourful game boards to play Checkers, Chess, Backgammon, Parcheesi, Chinese Checkers, and Snakes and Ladders. We can scroll through each game board by turning the knob. We like that it is in one convenient package, perfect for travelling and can be played with 2 to 4 players age 7 and up. 
6 in 1 game
It includes magnetic multi colour playing pieces, 2 dice, sticker sheet, and complete instructions. We like that in the back of the games there is a built-in storage drawer to keep everything together. Since the playing pieces are magnetic it stays in place. This game has come in handy during our summer travels and road trips.
charades for kids
The classic game of Charades designed especially for children has three levels of clues to allow children of all ages participate. The 150 cards in Charades for Kids has the first clue with a picture to help young children ages 4 to play the game independently. The words corresponding to the picture is below to reinforce early reading skills. Younger players can act out a toothbrush, a cat or a bumble bee. Older children can read the simple words and phrases and act out actions like eating spaghetti or playing guitar. This game is great for the whole family to play together and guess the charade before time runs out. There are 450 charades, sand timer, game die, and complete instructions.
