Crazy Claw by Drumond Park Review

Edit this post
I'm guessing we are not the only ones to spend endless amounts of money and time trying to win teddies in the arcade grab machines. Most of the time we don't even want the teddy it's just the thrill of seeing the 'claw' pick it up, move it towards the opening and drop it down to make us a winner. The Crazy Claw from Drumond Park brings the excitement and thrill of trying to win to your home without spending lots of money. 




Setup was easy all we had to do was put on some stickers and fix the parts together.


Each coloured ball inside the Crazy Claw has a token inside with a prize on it. 


To play all you need to do is grab the claw and reach in. Once you have grabbed a coloured ball you lift it out. Trying to grab a ball isn't as easy as it seems as your opponents can press the red buttons around the side of the machine and the balls will then bounce up and down.




Once you open the ball there is a token inside and if the token matches the prize on your collector card you can keep the token and play moves to the next player. If you do not have the matching prize on your card you need to pop it back in the coloured ball and back in the machine.


The first player to collect all their prizes is the winner.

*****

What We Loved

It's fun and easy to play.

Everyone loves the grab machines at arcades so it's nice to have our own at home. 

Simple to understand for little J (age 3) although the recommended age is 5+

What Could Improve

The plastic on box holding the balls is quite flimsy and wasn't as sturdy as I thought it would be. It could get damaged quite easily if not played with properly. This could be why recommended age is 5+

RRP is £22.99 which seems a little high.

  10. Yes I have won a few. i won gonzo at a theme park machine and have had a few teddies with notes attached when I was living in Leeds with my eldest. the trick is to aim for the ones closest to the drop bit and try to get a bear that has something the claw can easilly get a grip on.

  13. I have literally never won at one! I think I must have very poor coordination. I used to think they were fixed but I have seen other people win loads, so I'm not sure how they would manage if it was. Unless they know something I don't!! Hmmmm.
