What It Is
Hasbro has taken the classic game of Twister and added electronic light-up components to create the Twister Rave product lineup. One of the newest products in the line is Twister Dance Rave, which is basically a redesigned and rebranded version of Twister Dance. Twister Dance Rave includes three songs from Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding, and Britt Nicole, plus one Hasbro original song "Caught Up in a Twister".
To play, set up four colored spots on one side of the electronic console and four colored spots on the other side. This way, kids are facing one another as they dance. Turn on the console and choose one of three difficulty levels and the song you'd like to dance to. The console will light up with the traditional Twister colors of green, blue, yellow, and red, showing kids what foot needs to touch what color spot. For example, if the left side lights up blue, touch your left foot to the blue spot. When the lights go purple, make up your own dance moves.
Kids can also dance to their own music by connecting an MP3 player to the console. If kids want to use the console as an MP3 speaker and not play the game, they can turn out the console's lights by pressing the NEXT button for two seconds.
Twister Dance Rave is for one to two players.
Is It Fun?
Kids will have fun rocking out to songs from some of today's most popular musical artists while moving their feet to the colored spots on the floor. The colors show up a lot better on this console than on the original Twister Dance console. When not playing the game, the unit can be used as an MP3 speaker for use in a bedroom or at a party.
Who It’s For
Twister Dance Rave is for ages 8 and up. Hasbro says that some of the song lyrics in the built-in songs may not be appropriate for young or sensitive ears and are not endorsed by Hasbro.
What To Be Aware Of
Four AA batteries are included for the in-store try-me purposes. Hasbro recommends replacing them before you play for best results.
Even though this is a game, there is no scoring system. Kids might want to make up their own scoring system if they want to play a game with winners and losers.
The instructions don't say this but it's probably best to play this in socks. Shoes and bare feet tend to stick to the colored spots, moving them around on the floor. And if you're playing a competitive dance game, that is not helpful.
This game does have volume control.
This game is not to be played in complete darkness.
