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.
