Game review | Whoopee doo by IDEAL


As a family, one of the things we love to do is to switch off all technology, sit around the table and play games together and games are also one of our favourite reviews to do here on the blog.

Whoopee doo is a quick-thinking family game with a recommended age rating of 4+ which I would agree with, as I definitely think Emily would have struggled with the questions if she was a little younger. It also recommends 2+players and takes x3 AAA batteries which are not included.

The Game

We played in teams, but you don’t have to. To start the game, sit on the large inflatable cushion and hold down the yellow button until you hear the timer start, you then have to answer the challenge question on the card as quickly as you can and then press the yellow button to pause and pass to the next player to have a turn.

Don’t get caught!

You need to go quickly before the timer runs out because if you don’t, you will get caught and blow off in front of everyone, which the kids found hilarious.


Here is what we thought:

We had so much fun playing this fun family game. You can make the game as short or as long as you like and it’s very easy to set up and pack away or even travel with. We loved hearing the funny answers the kids spluttered out whilst under pressure. It is a simple game with very little contents and game instructions to read, and because its main focus is a farting machine, it was a winner with my kids.

Whoopee doo retails at £19.99 and is available to buy at all good toys stores. To see the latest games and reviews, why not join the Ideal Games facebook page here.

    It is nice to see a family playing games around the table instead of sitting with a tablet in front of them. Pity more families don’t do this
