The Manic Martians Game is a fun game for little ones. Bop a pop-up martian with a space rocket bopper to pick it up.

The Manic Martians Game is fun for two players. Your little one can watch as the martains go in and out of the craters, and then bop one on the head with the space rocket bopper to pick it up! This enjoyable game for 2 players is great fun for children and adults, and easy for little ones to understand. Manic Martians Game also makes a great present to take to a birthday party.

After four years of rough treatment the 'hammers' gave way - not bad!!!

Only downside is it takes a C battery rather than more commonly available A batteries.

I initially wanted to give this game a negative comment as I have had hard time to pick up the Martians, indeed can hardly pick up any after a few big bangs and that annoyed me so much and hit it even harder! So my son and I spent time just banging the Martians real hard which he found it amused but I got really frustrated.
When my husband came home and heard my complaint he then gave it a try. Well, he managed to pick them all up without hassles and he gave them a very gentle bang. So I tried to hit the Martians gently and yes I picked them all up, so does my 2 years old son!
Believe it or not, my 2 year-old managed to pick all the Martians within 10 mins including putting the Martians gently to the side. He loves this game and always ask to play.
So the secret to handle this game is not to hit them hard but be very gentle.

I dont usually write reviews but after reading the negative review about this product i felt that i really should. we were bought this as a present for my sons third birthday and originally the item didnt work and was broken, however the ELC swapped the item for a working one without a reciept which was really good of them and checked out in the shop it worked. this is the only negative complaint i have about this game - the working one we have is brilliant, and my 3 year old son, my 84 year old nana and all the family memebers inbetween can play this game, its easy to use, simple to explain to the kids and provides lots of laughs. I am pretty sure if you cant pick up the martians then its something you're doing wrong, its dead simple and i think this is totally suitable for even 2 and up if the child can concentrate. i would re buy this for a friends child and for £6 its a bargain for a decent present. ignore the bad reviews this is exactly what it says on the box, its a good game.

Bought this for christmas for my soon to be 4 year old and really wish I hadn't bothered.

My child, and even some adult members of our family, find it impossible to pick up the Martians with the hammers leading to lots of frustration, which makes the game unenjoyable.

I bought this game for my son who is 28 months old after he played it at his cousins house. He absolutely loves this game and has worked out exactly how to catch the bobbing martians. He also uses the martians as extra people in his happyland house and has great fun lining them all up in a row. I did buy it in the half price sale which was as added bonus.
