The lovely people from Garden Games sent us Mega Hi Tower in a Bag for us to play with.
Mega Hi Tower is like a giant version of Jenga, where the 58 blocks are 34 x 70 x 207 mm in size compared to 15 x 25 x 75mm. The blocks come in a handy bag for storage and transportation.
It’s a bit out of season for a garden game but as Sunday was a fairly warm autumn day it felt good to get everyone outside for a bit. First of all I set up the initial tower and explained to Charlie and Marie what we needed to do. I wasn’t sure if Marie (4) was going to understand but she quickly got the idea with a bit of help from Daddy.
We had quite a lot of fun as it wobbled when we were trying to pull out the blocks from lower down to place them on top. The tower finally fell when Charlie was just a little bit too ambitious with the block he was trying to remove!
Then we decided to have some fun using the blocks just a building blocks. Daddy and I built with our own Coliseum and Marie worked hard at getting the blocks to balance on top of each other.
Eventually it got a bit chilly so we took the blocks inside and Charlie built himself a castle.
Overall we had a lot of fun with Mega Hi Tower on Sunday afternoon, using the blocks for the original intention and making up a few of our own! I was impressed with the quality of the wooden blocks, solid and smooth so no splinters. I can see how this will be a lot of fun in the summer when we have a few people over for a barbecue.
Thank you Garden Games for giving us the opportunity to try Mega Hi Tower in a Bag.
