Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978

Apple Pop

Apple Pop

Fall 2015 Games
Ages: 4 & Up
Manufacturer: Wonder Forge Inc.
Price: $14.99

Beginning with the rhyming description/invitation on the box, "Pop the apples out of the tree. Win by collecting the correct three!" the game welcomes all who enter. The winner is the first player to collect the three colored balls (aka apples) that match those stamped in the assigned/selected crate. One red, yellow and green, two greens and a yellow, and so on. But accuracy counts. If a player pops an apple out of the yard, his/her turn ends.

Although the setup is easy, adult assistance is helpful for the first game or two. The illustrated box doubles as the game board, the directions are simple, and the play is fun. Two - four players ages 4+ will hone fine motor skills, color recognition and matching, planning, and waiting one's turn. All fun is included.
