Pressman Toy iPieces Air Hockey and Fishing Game Review
My kids love using the iPad at home and during our frequent travels. While at the Blogher 2012 conference I had the pleasure of stopping by the Pressman Toy booth and fell in love with their new iPieces games. I knew Cameron and Preston would have a blast using them on their iPad and eagerly awaited their release.
When the kind folks at Pressman asked me if I would be interested in conducting a review I jumped at the chance. I was going to use the toys as stocking stuffers for the kids this Christmas so they could use the iPieces on our upcoming flight to the UK. Both kids are fans of air hockey and my husband and I thought they'd also enjoy the fun fishing game.
It's really simple to get started. Download the free app from the iTunes store, wait for it to load, and start the fun. Preston had a great time playing this game with his Daddy. He's three years old and likes playing air hockey at Chuck E. Cheese and on the iPad so he knows the rules. Cameron is two years old and too young to follow the game rules but she likes hitting the puck with her finger.
The game is glitch free and seamless. We tested the app on two iPads. One with a screen protector and one without. The iPieces glide effortlessly on the cover free iPad. They don't stick on the covered iPad but playing on the iPad without a screen cover was a bit easier. It didn't bother us but it's something to consider if you have a really thick cover.
The iPieces game is super fun and works perfectly. I suggest it for anyone over 3. It costs $12.99 and is a great gift idea for Secret Santa, stocking stuffer, or a birthday. Affordable, portable, and easy to use.
The kids thought this game was hilarious. It functions just like their air hockey game. Download a free app, load it on to your iPad, grab your fishing rods, and enjoy.
Cameron played the fishing game a few times with Preston but grew tired eventually because she was having issues dumping the fish in the bucket. She's two so her attention span is short. Preston on the other hand loves a challenge. He played a few rounds and was determined to beat me.
I'm looking forward to using the games on our flight. I think they'll be a welcome distraction. The fishing game is $12.99 and is great for preschool age kids and up. My husband and I enjoyed playing both games so don't rule out iPieces for yourself or an adult friend.
