Most of the board games in this house tend to be aimed towards my 8yr old son and are played once the 3yr old has gone to bed. L has just reached that age now though where she wants to play games herself and I’ve been on the lookout for something she’d like.

With perfect timing we were recently sent Bunny Jump by University Games to review and L was so excited when she saw the box. She loves anything to do with bunnies, so that was a huge point in it’s favour already.

Find out what we though of Bunny Jump, the great new kids game for the bunny-obsessed. Like a re-imagined version of pop-up pirate ...

When you have an impatient toddler eager to get playing the last thing you want is a game that is time consuming or fiddly to set up. Thankfully Bunny Jump is neither of those things. You simply place the carrots in the slots around the base, push the bunny on top and you’re good to go.

Each player chooses a basket (there are 4) and then takes it in turns to flick the spinner. The arrow will determine whether the player is allowed to pick one carrot or two, or whether they miss a turn or lose a carrot from their basket because the bunny has eaten it (L thought this was hilarious and it had to be acted out each time).

L struggled with the spinner a little as it didn’t work flat on the floor and when she held it she kept getting her fingers in the way, so I had to hold it for her. Not a big issue, but she likes to do everything herself so this bit could be improved.

At some point during the game, picking one of the carrots (completely random) will send the bunny flying through the air. If you manage to catch the bunny you get to take two carrots from an opponent’s basket.

The winner of the game is whoever has the most carrots in their basket once the bunny has jumped.

The packaging has Bunny Jump as being suitable for ages 5+ but in my opinion that’s a bit high. L is only 3 and grasped the game easily and loves it and there are no small parts to worry about.

It’s such a simple and easy game and so much fun. It brought back lots of happy memories of playing pop-up pirate when I was a kid.

L still laughing about the bunny jumping

L absolutely loves this game and it has already been played countless times, even her big brother doesn’t mind playing this one with her. She also likes playing it by herself and loves making the bunny jump.

With an RRP of £19.99 I think Bunny Jump is a definite winner.

  3. I think my daughter would love this – though she’s only 2.5 so I imagine she would have trouble keeping her fingers away from the spinner too! #familyfunlinky

  8. I bought this game a couple of Christmases ago and still is one of the most popular games in my home. My boys think it is the most funniest thing when mummy jumps every time with the rabbit, lol X #familyfunlinky

  10. That looks like a pretty fun game, and one that an adult can bear to play with a child (on occasion, not constantly!!). I’m excited for when my Doll will be ready to play games!

  14. I had this page open in front od my three year old and she just screamed ‘Mummy I want to see that’. She was enthralled by L and the game – I think I have found a Christmas present, thank you. It’s nice that they can start playing games now (even if it is designed for 5 year olds) it gives us something else to do lol! #familyfunlinky
