When you were younger, did you ever play those twist, clap and snap games with your friends? You know the ones I’m talking about…Well, I was never any good at those hand games, but I do remember watching all the girls that were good at it – group into threes and compete against other girls grouped into threes. They’d play and compete for hours. It was so entertaining for the rest of us.
What about skipping? Do you remember doing that when you were a kid? I used to love doing that. And if I remember correctly, we (my best friends and I) used to race from one side of the basket ball court to the other – skipping – to see who could do it best. I don’t think I ever won, but I do remember it being fun.
If you loved either one of those games, and they bring back memories of when you were younger, know that they’re still being played today, only Twister’s made them a bit more exciting, colorful, and challenging. Did I mention fun?
Skip-It® is back in 2013 with the all-new TWISTER RAVE Skip-It® game that will have players skipping as long as they can!

Try to master TWISTER RAVE Skip-It® by getting the game to light up to reveal all four iconic TWISTER colors (red, blue, yellow and green). The fun never ends when you’re skipping your way to victory! (Requires 3 AAA batteries – not included).

The girls are just now learning how to use the Twister Rave Skip-It game the way it’s intended, however…poor things…they take after me. And by that I mean, they have no clue how to play the clapping, slapping and snapping games. They still have lots of fun with the rings. They come out after bed time, when they’re supposed to be sleeping (LOL).
All and all – the Ringz and Skip-it game bring lots of fun. They’d be a great addition to the game list at birthday parties for sure.
