Sent for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
As a family, we love games and puzzles – especially those that we can do together. When asked if we would like to review anything from the TOMY range, Jack opted for Phil The Fridge. He had seen it advertised on the TV and had been desperately wanting it – and ruing the fact that he had only just had his birthday and Christmas.
Suitable for ages 4+, the game is suitable for 2-4 players making it perfect for playing with your family or playing with your friends. The concept of the game is simple – Phil will spin and when he stops you have just a few seconds to add your food to the corresponding hole before he spins again. Sometimes you will have the door facing you or a side where your food won’t fit – so you won’t be able to take your turn but other players will. As soon as he starts spinning again, then you need to stop trying to fit your pieces in. The first player to get rid of all of their coloured food pieces is the winner.
As you can see above, there are four different colours – each one has six different types of food. Once you’ve got rid of all your pieces, you win -as long as no one else has beat you. However, sometimes Phil decides he doesn’t want all that food in his tummy and will open his door and spit some of it out. If your food gets spat out, then you need to take it back and put it through the holes once again.
The game is great fun and made for lots of fun as we tried to outdo each other. We did have a little bit of sore loser from Jack as he lost a couple of times in a row but he soon cheered up when he actually won! This has proved to be a very popular game in our house and he is always getting it out to play with friends and family. I can see this being one of his favourites for a long time to come.
We love TOMY products and this game more than lived up to our expectations. What TOMY games do you like best?
