The aim of the game is to beat your opponent with a higher score by shaking the most. So much fun and a great way to get the children active, this is a gift that girls are sure to love!

Not only are the books a real joy to read, but they'll also provide hours and hours of entertainment, aid in improving reading and vocabulary skills, and even teach some great life lessons.
