We received the Fantastic Gymnastics game to play at home. We love Hasbro games. We have a cool selection and the girls love getting them out during the weekends so we can have fun playing as a family. I knew this game was going to be a fun one and we were all very excited to try it out.
We actually tested this game a few months back hence why the girls look younger in the photos but this game has been played so many times that I thought it is worth doing a post to show you how it works and that it can be a great option for Christmas.
The Fantastic Gymnastics Game from Hasbro is a game of skill. A little like real gymnastics you need to have the right moves, with perfect timing to be able to win the game and land your gymnast on the mat to score the highest marks.
This game was great fun to play as a family as even though Sienna is still young, she could watch us and copy what we were doing to join in too.
Inside the box you get the following items:
- gymnast figure
- high bar base
- 2 high bar supports
- landing mat
- instructions (including tournament bracket).
it is really easy to put together and you can set it up and off and running within minutes. It really is that simple. You will need 2 AA batteries for the game which aren’t included and it is suitable for ages 3+.
Aim of the Game
The aim of the game is to swing the gymnast over the bar and get him to land on the landing mat on his feet in the score zone. The goal being the 110 point score. It was going to take some practising to be able to do this I think!
How to Play The Fantastic Gymnastics Game
You can play this game alone, with one other player or as a group. Just make sure someone is keeping score.

To get the gymnast to flip over and ultimately leave the bar to land requires you to press on the buttons on the base. You need to build up the momentum to be able to do this and get him to the right speed to flip over. I have to say I didn’t manage to get him to flip over the bar. It is a very hard game to play I think.
We all played together as a family and had a lot of fun trying to get him to flip over the bar. Nick did manage to get him to do this and land on his feet! way to go, Nick. Bella managed it too but Sienna and I struggled and couldn’t get him to leave the bar! It really does take some practice at pressing the buttons to make the gymnast swing enough to get over the bar.
The game was a lot of fun to play and we all really enjoyed it despite it being difficult to play. This is definitely a game you need to keep on playing to be able to do it properly again and again.
This is a great idea for a game and I think many young kids who are fans of gymnastics would love to play it. You can buy the Fantastic Gymnastics game from Amazon currently for £14.46
