product information

Jitterbugs Game is great fun for little ones. Each player has to catch the trembling creepy crawlies with a magnetic spider fishing rod.

The Jitterbugs Game is great fun for children. Turn the game on to make the bugs jitter all over the garden base. Then each player can use a spider fishing rod to try to pick up bugs one at a time. Each rod has a different-coloured spider on the end, so players try and catch their matching coloured bugs. The first player to catch all of their bugs is the winner. For an easier game, players can rush to try and fish as many bugs as possible. When all the bugs have been caught, the players can count how many jitterbugs they've picked up. This game is good fun for young children to play.

Quick facts:

Using a fishing rod to try and pick up the bugs in the Jitterbugs Game is a fun way for your child to develop good hand-to-eye coordination. Learning how to play a game, and playing with friends or family, are great for problem-solving and social skills. Fishing for different-coloured bugs and counting up the bugs, help with learning colours and counting practice.

The rules are easy for young children to understand, and trying to fish for the jittery creepy crawlies guarantees lots of giggles.

Playing tips:

Let's catch bugs
Let's pick a spider of our own. They're hungry, and they want their tea. Smiley busy bugs are on the menu. YUK! The bugs are munching on pretty flowers, but our spiders are coming to get them: let's play.

Doing the Jitterbug
We can make the bugs shiver, shake and hop around: BZZZZZZ. Let's dangle our spider and jump on the bugs. It's our spiders' favourite time: bug-munching time.

Counting our catch
How many bugs have we caught? Let's count up our bugs, and see who's got the greediest spider. They'll all be hungry again soon, so let's play again. There's no escape for the creepy-crawlies.

Great for:
Fishing fun on a rainy day
Challenging friends and family
Good vibrations and lots of laughter
Speed play – let's fish as fast as we can
Boosting coordination and dexterity
Making spider sounds: hear them CHOMP
Practising counting and naming colours
Making your spider dangle – don't get in a tangle
Two-player tussle, three-player thrills or four-player fun.
