Since its release this spring Watermelon Smash has being well received by children, parents and toy reviewers. The element of surprise has been a popular theme among the hottest toys of 2018. Watermelon Smash is the perfect combination of mess, with simplicity, making it an appealing game for children (and parents) of all ages.

The success of the game has been linked to the strong online community centered around the #watermelonsmashchallenge. Children and families world wide have been playing the game with all sorts of liquids, adding an extra element of suspense.

Here’s how it works

Players each take a turn to spin the spinner. They press the watermelon against their head as many times as indicated on the spinner, and then pass it onto the next player.

It is a suspenseful game in which you never know when the watermelon will fully crack open. If it cracks on your turn, you either get covered with water (outdoor version) or plastic watermelon seeds (indoor version) and you are out of the game.

The last dry player is the winner.

The Watermelon Smash Game is available exclusively online and at your local Target store.
