Fans of Pikmi Pops Surprise! Will Go Crazy for These Games and Puzzle from Pressman Toys, This Holiday Season! (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.


Just in time for the holidays, Pressman Toys has come out with some fun Pikmi Pops Surprise! games and puzzles for fans of these collectible scented plush toys.  Both of my girls are huge fans of these Pikmi characters, and have them on their wish list for Santa.  So, I knew they would be all smiles and excited to help me review some of these new games from Pressman Toys when I was sent review samples the other day.  And, that they were! They couldn't wait for game night to play, and have been playing with these games, and solving the puzzle ever since.

About the Game:

"This well-known board game brings the Pikmi Pops to life! Players pop the dome to roll the die and move their playing pieces around the board. When they land on another player’s piece, that player is in trouble and must move their playing piece back to Start. The first player to get all four playing pieces from Start to Home wins the game! For 2-4 players, ages 5 and up."

Game Contents
  • Game Board with Die Popper
  • 16 Movers in 4 Colors
  • Complete Instructions

My Thoughts:

Fans of the classic Trouble game will love this version featuring the Pikmi Pops!. My girls really enjoyed this game, and loved that it can be completed in 10-15 minutes, so it is a fast-paced game that can be played on the go, as a rematch type game, or when you are pressed for time, but want to play a quick game with your family or friends.  I don't know about you, but when I pull out games like this, my two girls get really competitive.  There are tears shed if one loses, but they are quick to replace the pegs at the start line and play again, until everyone has a chance of winning.  

If you are looking for a game the whole family can play and isn't long and drawn out, then you will want to check out the fun new Pikimi Pops Surprise Pop 'N" Race Game from Pressman Toys.  It is an addicting game, that will have everyone around the table laughing and having a blast, as you move your pegs around the board.

About the Game:

My Thoughts:

Out of all the Pikmi Pops Surprise! games we were sent from Pressman Toys, this was by far my girls' favorite, partly because it included a surprise Pikmi Pops sweet scented plush for the winner inside the box, but it was also a fun game to play.  Like the other games from Pressman Toys, this game is easy to explain to kids and setting up the game board is a breeze.  My girls were off and running after a few minutes of explaining the rules, and didn't want to stop playing.

Knowing that this game came with only one sweet scented plush inside, I picked up a few more Pikmi Pops surprise toys prior to sharing this game with the girls, as I knew one of them would be upset when they lost and didn't win the scented plush. So, I was ready with my Pikmi Pops Surprise stash to prevent a meltdown. :-)

Both of my girls enjoyed the fun challenge cards, which had them doing and sharing something in order to move ahead.  And, the goal of the game is to collect 4 different colored lollipop tokens to fill their Pikmi Tree mats with. The first one to collect all four is the winner.  And, if during game play a player lands on the "sweet surprise" spot they get to hold the Pikmi plush blind bag, and also get a second spin with each turn, as long as they are in control of the Pikmi plush blind bag.

I played this game a few times with my girls and can see why my girls are enjoying it so much.  It really is a fun game to play, and will have you racing around the game board picking up lollipop tokens along the way to fill your Pikmi tree mats.  I highly recommend this game for fans of Pikmi Pops Surprise!.

  • Fully functioning Pikmi Pops lunchbox

My Thoughts:

My girls love when puzzles come in lunch box tins, as they usually use these tins to store their toys of that character, as well as the puzzle, for on the go play.  So, as soon as my oldest daughter saw this lunchbox puzzle the other day, she was quick to dump the pieces out on the table to figure out the puzzle.  

Then, she filled her lunchbox with the Pikmi Pops Surprise scented plush toys she has collected thus far.  She did find the puzzle to be a little challenging as it had a few Pikmi Pops characters with similar colors, and the clouds were a little tricky to place.  

But, in the end, she was all smiles when she completed the puzzle, and couldn't wait for me to snap a photo, so that she could break it up and start again, and then have her little sister try to figure out. :-)
