I love a good family quiz, but it can all get a bit chaotic with everyone shouting out their answers at the same time. It's hard to tell who to award the points to. Well, my annual festive family quiz problem is now solved because of this set of Answer Buzzers from Learning Resources UK.
The four colourful buzzers each have a different sound, a honking horn, a doorbell, a boxing bell and a boing. You can easily distinguish the sounds, so you know which player buzzed in first to answer the question. They elevate a family quiz into a gameshow adding excitement and fun to the proceedings!
Each requires 2 x AAA batteries.
Children aged 3 and over will enjoy using the buzzers as part of a quiz and even adults will enjoy the competitive edge of using buzzers in trivia quizzes. It adds to the tension and excitement of the game.
I look forward to adapting some of our usual family games using the buzzers. We have lots of trivia books and question cards from old board games that we use to play multi-generational quiz games, especially at Christmas. Teaming up the oldest with the youngest in teams gives a good cross-section of knowledge. Adding the buzzers will bring an extra dimension...that of speed of the buzzer to the game. Just like on TV!
