Bellz is a fun magnetic pick up game from Spin Master that all the family can join in with and is also great to take away with you as it comes with it’s own handy travel pouch that stores all the pieces and doubles up as the game board. Aimed at ages 6+, my 8 and 6yr olds were keen to give it a try!
The game comprises of the following parts:
- A zip up travel pouch/game board
- A double ended magnet
Lots of colourful bells in various sizes and 4 colours
The idea of the came is to collect all of the bells in one colour. The colour you collect is determined by the first colour you pick up that no one else is already collecting. The magnetic wand is used to pick up the bells and has a bigger stronger magnet at one end and a less powerful one on the smaller end. It’s up to you which end you choose but we found the big end really strong so tended to play with the smaller side.
You can pick up as many bells as you want in each turn, as long as they are all of the same colour otherwise play passes to the next person. With the strength of the magnet you can make a chain of bells which adds to the excitement.
My children loved this game, the jingle of the bells kept them excited and the thrill of what they could collect on the magnet. It is tricky, not as easy as it looks at all, but we did have our own rules to simplify it a little. For such a simple game, it has been played many times over the last few weeks and it’s always lovely to see both concentration and smiles on their faces. I also love the travel pouch, a round neoprene zip up case that holds all of the bells and magnetic wand so the game is completely self contained. A fun family game that everyone can enjoy and is great to take on holidays, weekends away for a bit of healthy competition and fun!
