What is it
Have some scary fun with this Electronic Rattle Me Bones Game where each player has a mission. The skeleton of Captain Boney an old pirate reclines on his treasure trove and players must creep up stealthily and steal his possessions from right under his nose. Sounds easy but if he ‘feels’ your touch watch out. He’ll leap up rattling and shaking to scare away the thief.

What our experts think
The exploding skeleton really kept children on their toes. – it made a lot of them jump when it went off! Removing the objects helps children develop hand-eye coordination and patience, and requires strategy to avoid setting the skeleton off. Games like Rattle Me Bones are great for practising social skills such as sharing, and may encourage discussion, developing confidence and building relationships.
It would be even better if...
It was quite difficult to set up so an adult will need to do this (and may need some patience!).
