The 4th October marks World Grandparents Day in the UK, to celebrate we’ve partnered with Ideal games to review Windy Knickers the super fun family game for all ages.
The game is relatively simple to set up, you’ll need to unscrew the base of the washing line and insert the 3x AA batteries before adding stickers to the pieces of underware.
There are four different sets; pink, purple, yellow and blue. Each of the different sets contains four pieces, two knickers pieces and two bras.
The aim of the game is to get all your pieces of washing on the line. However, you’ll quickly be stopped by a change in weather which is created by a roll of the dice. And if a tornado hits expect Granny to spin around and potentially lose her clothes alongside some items of washing which have already made it onto the line.
When Granny gets caught up in the wild winds there is an infectious laugh that makes everyone in the room giggle, this was Matilda’s favourite part, she laughs her socks off.
Windy Knickers was a massive hit with the whole family; Matilda who’s just turned 4, Frankie who’s 8, myself and Helen at 28 and of course, our very own Granny!
The game is super easy to set up, understand and can be played in under 10 minutes which makes it the perfect hit for those who get bored when playing board games. With the fun twist of Granny’s clothes falling off expect children to hover over the tornado button, and be more than happy to press it over and over again.
I love that there are not many parts required to play the game, which means a limited number of parts to lose – Always a winner in our house!
Windy Knickers is available to purchase from all major toy stores and online from the Amazon, Smyths and The Entertainer.
