Wally The Washer {Review}

This month we have been working with Drumond Park to review some of their fantastic games for kids. Next up it’s Wally The Washer which has definitely been added to my top five favourite family games, it’s brilliant!

Wally The Washer is not just your average washing machine, fill him up with laundry, watch him spin then try to grab your clothes as they come tumbling out. Watch out though, if the smelly sock tumbles out during your turn you have to wear the peg on your nose until the sock comes out again.

The aim of the game is to be the first player to finishing hanging all their washing on their washing line. If two players’ final pieces come out in the same turn the fastest person to hang their last piece up is the winner.

The game does require 3 x AA batteries which are not included, inside the box you will find

1 x Wally The Washer washing machine

1 x Giant peg

1 x Dirty sock

1 x Sticker sheet

5 Clothes pieces each in red, yellow, green and blue

4 x Washing line and poles in red, yellow, green and blue

Assembling the game was quick and easy and we were soon set up and ready to play.

Daisy filled up the washing machine with hers’ and Jake’s clothes, they were both really excited to see how Wally would spin. Jake went first, closing the door to make Wally spin and then pressing down on the soap box to open the door.

There was lots of excitement and giggling when the door flew open and the clothes came tumbling. The kids quickly retrieved their pieces and hung them on their washing lines. I love how simple this game is for the kids to play, this means they can play alone or with us adults.

When the smelly sock eventually flew out the washing machine the kids were delighted, I think this feature adds an extra element of fun to the game. Jake was the first to wear the peg closely followed by Daisy.

The victor of our first round was Jake, as you can see he was over the moon to be crowned champion. Wally The Washer is lots of fun for the whole family to play, we absolutely loved it.

The bin is a disgusting job and there washing basket is always in the corner of the room staring at me with a certain disappointed look …

    I don’t like cleaning the bathroom, loads of tiles to keep clean, then there’s the bath bending over and cleaning it is a right pain, the basin and toilet where everyone else uses but never rinses the basin or thinks to put a bit of bleach down when they know it’s right by the loo in the cupboard and I think I’m the only one to put the loo roll on the holder, the others leave tho old roll on and the new one on top and as for changing the towels well don’t get me going on this one , I do live in a male dominated household so I shouldn’t be suprised really bless them

  92. Claire Nelson
    December 4th 2018 / 5:19 PM

  93. Miss Tracy Hanson
    December 4th 2018 / 6:46 PM

    I must admit it’s the kitchen and the tile floor. Having a large dog doesn’t help this weather when he’s in and out of the garden quite a lot (shouldn’t complain but the floor does get messy) and the oven is my bugbear. Also absolutely hate trying to hang sheets out on the line (the washing machine is in the kitchen so that adds to it lol).
