5NEUKids have long been huge fans of activity games – that is, games that operate outside the traditional board game style and have completely unique game play devices, like Janga, for instance. At the same time, all kids love balloons, but what many of them love even more than mere balloons is popping balloons. The Boom Boom Balloon game, as one might assume from the name, combines those two loves into a fun, tension filled (no pun intended) game!

Let’s take a look at some of the features

Boom Boom Balloon operates on a very simple concept. The game comes with 10 balloons, several sticks, and a frame. Users blow up one of the balloons inside the frame and tie it off, and then insert all of the sticks into the holes in the frame. Players then roll the 6-sided die and push a stick or sticks of their choice in, depending upon their roll. As the sticks go further in, the surface tension is increased on the balloon, and the loser is the one that makes it pop! The game is very simple and easy to understand.

4NEUHow Much?

Boom Boom Balloon was originally released in 2013 with a suggested retail price of $19.99. The current price on Amazon is $11.24 (Sep 2016) which is a good mark down on its release price.

Things We Like About Boom Boom Balloon

The game is rated for children ages 8 and up, but the concept is so simple, nearly any age can understand it, though younger children may be put off by the loud burst. Even adults can have fun waiting with baited breath for the strained balloon to finally burst. The frame includes a very handy tie-off system that relieves players of tying tiny, awkward knots, and all of the included parts are sturdy and well made.

Things We Did Not Like About Boom Boom Balloon

While Boom Boom Balloon is undoubtedly a fun and simple concept, the only drawback is that merely 10 balloons are included. Certainly, replacement balloons are very inexpensive and can be purchased almost anywhere, but it would have been nice to have had more included.

2NEUWho Would Buy Boom Boom Balloon?

Boom Boom Balloon is a game the whole family can play together, and nearly everyone loves popping balloons!

Is Boom Boom Balloon Worth the Money?

Considering the fun the whole family can have watching and waiting for the balloons to pop, just over $11 seems a small price. The fun is still there while the price has dropped from that at release.

3NEUWhere Can I Buy Boom Boom Balloon?

Boom Boom Balloon is available from all major retailers. Online retailers like Amazon as well as major chain stores like Walmart and Target likely carry this product too
