What our experts think
Our testers enjoyed the funny music, noises and jokes that Silly Sausage made! The pulling and twisting features of the game were engaging and good for developing fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, as well as improving concentration skills due to the game’s fast paced nature. Our testers with special needs also loved this game, finding the toy easy to handle and the actions simple enough to replicate, with the children dancing to the silly music. The ‘pass the sausage’ and ‘party’ modes encouraged social play, turn taking and sharing. We like that Silly Sausage increases in difficulty; as successful play continues, the instructions get quicker, which enables children to progress in ability.
It would be even better if...
Some of our testers needed an adult to set the game mode first for them before play, as the different modes are named after different types of sausages, which isn’t so clear in explaining what the type of game is to new players.
