Mr. Bucket Review (Pressman)

Mr. Bucket
What It Is

Mr. Bucket is back! The classic game from the '90s that parents might have played when they were little kids is now available for today's kids to play. But the gameplay is the same. As the battery-operated Mr. Bucket moves around the floor, kids must try to scoop up their color balls with their shovels and place them inside Mr. Bucket before he pops the balls out again. If one of your balls gets popped back out, just scoop it back up and drop it back into Mr. Bucket. The first player to get all three of his or her color balls inside Mr. Bucket must quickly lift Mr. Bucket by the handle, which will stop the popping action and end the game.

Is It Fun?

Little kids will really like watching Mr. Bucket spin and move around the floor as they themselves move around trying to scoop up their balls faster than Mr. Bucket pops them out. The game is easy to learn how to play, and it gets kids active, which is always a plus. This is a fun and silly game that little kids will like playing over and over again.

Who It’s For

Mr. Bucket is for two to four players ages 3 and up. This incorporates active play into a fun and fast-paced game for young kids. Parents who remember the game from when they were kids will enjoy being able to play it with their own kids.
