Pop Goes Froggio ~ A fun children's game ~ The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide

I have a great game suggestion for you for the short people in your life.  Pop Goes Froggio from Hasbro is an adorable kids game of matching that keeps the kids engaged.  Unlike other games, Pop Goes Froggio gives the children an opportunity to launch  Froggio into the air - the question is, who will catch Froggio?  Or will he go splat?  
 The kids and I love this game because it's one that gets you up and moving.  Of course the kid's favorite part of the game is getting to stomp on the lily pad launcher and seeing how high they can launch Froggio.  Froggio is made of a soft foam so no worries about accidental bonks.  Of course, it's always a good idea to use caution and follow the warnings printed on the game.

Place lily pads featuring Elefun and his friends face down around the room. Take turns spinning the butterfly spinner and race around to try and find the matching Elefun character. Once the matching lily pad is found, the preschooler stomps on the lily pad launcher to send Froggio flying!
