Hasbro’s Elefun and Friends just came out with a new game called Scatterpillar Scramble.  The makers of Elefun, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Gator Golf, and Giraffalaff Limbo have another winner on their hands. This game would make an excellent Christmas gift for a preschooler. Keep reading for a chance to win this game!

Scatterpillar Scramble is a cute dancing caterpillar with four sets of hands.  The game is for 2-4 players, ages 4 and up.  Each player has a color coded set of tongs and marbles.  The goal of the game is for each player to place all of their marbles into the caterpillar’s hands before their opponents.

My 3 1/2 and 6 year old children love the game, but they find it discouraging to play the game according to the directions.  My husband and I even have a difficult time placing all the marbles while the caterpillar gyrates around to lively music. My kids like to race to place the marbles when the caterpillar is still, then turn it on to do a celebratory dance for the winner. The kids like to laugh and join in, then play again. They also like to play with their grandmother and anyone else who comes to visit.

This game would be excellent in a retirement home or rehab setting for people trying to improve their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. It would also make for an interesting time at a college party.

We haven’t tried very many games yet, but my son likes Whac-A-Mole. Great to divert a kid who likes to hit on things.

We play twister, Hi-ho Cherrio, Candyland and we can’t resist a good game of GO FISH. But we are always looking for new fun and those games look engaging and fun, especially Scatterpillar Scramble, so bring it on!
