OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Let's start off with the adorable blue pup we all love, Blue! The Blue's Clues Snack Match is geared toward children 3 years of age and older. The game includes 1 refrigerator with spinning snacks, 36 pawprint tokens, 24 lunchbox cards, and instructions. The objective of the game is to help Blue pick snacks for snack time! To begin, place the paw print tokens in a pile within reach of all players. Give each player 1 lunchbox card displaying three snacks on it. On your turn press Blue on top of the refrigerator and watch the snacks scroll by in the refrigerator. When the spinning stops, look at all of the snacks the refrigerator lands on. If any snack in the refrigerator matches one shown on your lunchbox card, take a paw token and cover the picture on your card. If the refrigerator spins a paw print, you can put a paw print token on any of the snacks on your card. When you cover all three snacks on your lunchbox card, put the paw print tokens back in the pile and put your lunchbox card to your side. You need to complete three lunchbox cards to win the game.

Next, there's Spray Off Play Off. It's a team-based challenge game where players compete against each other to not get sprayed in the face. Each set includes a 2-piece hydro-pump, spin base, 100 double-sided challenge cards, and instruction sheet. Here you have to race to complete challenges to save your teammate from the Hydro-pump. As the timer ticks down, will your team stay high and dry or will you be all washed up?

First, fill up the chamber with water and pull the plunger back until it locks into place. The first team will press the red button on the hydro-pump once to begin the timer countdown. Hold down the button for 5 seconds and when you hear the unit tick, lift your hand from the button. The other team member draws the top challenge card and reads it out loud- the faster, the better! Here you need to complete challenges before the countdown finishes to avoid getting sprayed! As soon as the challenge is successfully completed, press the red button again once. Once a team is sprayed 3 times, they're out of the game. To win, be the last team standing!

Lastly, we've got Grouch Couch! Ever wonder what happens to those little items that go missing around the house? Now's your chance to find out and maybe get some things back when Grouch Couch spits out Lost Goodies! Each set includes; 1 Grouch Couch, 16 Treats, 15 Lost Goodies, 1 Die, and instructions.

Take turns feeding Grouch Couch all kinds of tasty treats. Then press the remote-control and see what happens. He might grumble, chomp, burp, and (hopefully) eat your treats! When he does, he'll spit out Lost Goodies. You never know when he'll eat or spit out Lost Goodies! You'll want to collect these because the player with the most Lost Goodies when Grouch Couch plays his victory song wins. This is a wacky, easy-to-play, fast-paced game that's a great fit for children 5 years of age and up.
