I love a good quiz. I’m not very good at answering the questions so I tend to set the questions. In fact I’m currently working on a few simple questions for a short quiz to be presented at my church New Year event on Monday evening.
I was sent these Answer Buzzers through the Blog Match scheme and they are right up my street. The four different coloured buttons offer game show style buzzers that “liven up any game” and allow individuals or teams to respond to questions and get their answer in before anyone else.
One thing that really annoys me about battery operated toys and games is when they don’t come with the batteries included… thankfully Poundland came to the rescue with enough AAA batteries to fill these things (eight in total) for £1. Then I needed a teeny screwdriver to open the battery compartment – good job we wear glasses in this house. Anyway, eventually I got them all juiced up and ready to use. And then the fun began!
Each of the four buzzers makes a different sound – they boing, ding, honk and ding dong!
They are only really loud enough for living room games (which is a good thing – any louder would be really annoying after a while!) but they are great for adding some noises to games you might play already at home. They have little rubber feet so they don’t go too far when sat on the table, and are fairly chunky so can be used by little hands.
These are a great idea, great fun for any quiz loving family.
You can buy the Answer Buzzers direct from Learning Resources UK. Oh and by the way, they are giving away some sets of Answer Buzzers over on their facebook page at the moment. Head over here to enter – the competition ends on Monday 31st December so be quick (and good luck!).
