Family Game Ideas

For Younger Kids:

Pop The Pig from Goliath

Pop the Pig is an international preschool classic that is adored by millions of children - it was the top-selling preschool game in 2016 and 2017 according to retailer sales data collected by NPD! Kids spin the spinner, pop a hamburger into the pig's mouth and push down on his head. The more they pump, the more his belly grows until...pop! Kids love the suspense as they watch his belly grow; the player who makes his belly burst wins the game. Children can quickly reset the game with one pump of the pig’s head and experience consistent belly-busting gameplay each and every time. Pop the Pig provides hours of fun and is completely kid powered (no batteries needed). For added convenience, all pieces can be stored inside the pig. For 2-6 players, ages 4 and up.
