If your child doesn’t find toilets hilarious, I don’t know what to tell you.
You lucked out.
For mine, particularly my smallest (I wouldn’t like to say it’s a boy thing, but I suspect it might be) there is NOTHING funnier than toilets, bums and poo. Lord help me.
Hasbro asked us if we’d like to test out their new game, Toilet Trouble Flushdown in honour of today which is in fact National Poop Day (which is a thing, but currently only in America, thank goodness for small mercies).
Toilet Trouble Flushdown is a game for two players.
It is similar in concept to last year’s original Toilet Trouble game. In both games, the aim is to avoid being squirted in the face with water from the toilet.
The original Toilet Trouble game could be played by any number of players, who each took a turn spinning a toilet roll to determine the number of flushes. They then had to flush the toilet the corresponding number of times, hoping that their flush wouldn’t be the one to spray them with water.
Toilet Trouble Flushdown has taken the chance element out of it; the aim is to spin the toilet roll as fast as possible and the slowest player get squirted in the face.
Toilet Trouble Flushdown is easy to set up.
Inside the box you get the plastic toilet base in one piece; and all you have to do is put the lids which clip on easily.
You also need to insert 3AA batteries (not included).
How to play Toilet Trouble Flushdown
Place on the floor or level surface within easy reach of both players. Fill the bowls up with a little clean tap water, and you are ready to play!
Press the flush button on the top until it makes a flushing noise and both toilet seats are slightly raised at the same angle, and you are ready to GO.
Both players furiously spin the toilet rolls towards themselves as quickly as possible.
As you spin, the music and sound effects play and lids of the toilet move up and down, depending on who is winning.
The aim is to get your toilet seat closed, and when one player manages to do this first, there will be another flush and their opponent will receive a small squirt of water to the face.
It isn’t enough to damage furnishings but if they happen to move out of the way in time it could make its way to the wall!
Flush the toilet again using the button on the top to start a new game.
Ensure that before you put the game away, you have tipped out all of the water and wiped it round.
Toilet Trouble Flushdown is very simple to play.
The game is aimed at children ages 4+, however it is very easy to play and my three year old thought the silly music and the squirting toilets were the funniest things ever.
Yes it’s not the most cerebral of pursuits, but if you want something silly for the children to play which will make them laugh, and they love a bit of toilet humour, then Toilet Trouble Flushdown will be right up their alley.
How much and where to buy
Currently you can purchase Toilet Trouble Flushdown at Smyths, and it has an RRP of £24.99. I suspect it will become readily available from retailers very soon.
