The Revo - an electronic toy designed to sharpen the senses!
At first sight the Revo looks rather like a large, updated Rubik’s cube but there the similarity ends. The Revo is an electronic game with a difference, designed to stimulate children’s reactions and memory. It requires fast reactions, visual acuity, recognising and following patterns and response to audible commands plus you have to be nifty with your fingers too!
The Revo has nine coloured squares on each side, one of which conceals a colour-coded flashing light, which at every move, the player has to extinguish . A voice prompts the player through the games.
There are six games to play:
Six year-old Iona really enjoyed playing with it, especially as it had six games. Silver was her favourite – it was a game against time and was really good fun. Iona thought it a real “brain booster”!
Adam, aged eight, thought it was "really cool. One of the really good games was green where you have to discover the pattern. The intructions were ok but you could work it out without them. No one liked the six player game.
At ten, Aaron didn’t really like it, found it too noisy and “you couldn’t hear the words”.
Katherine (mum)comments: "The Revo kept them all entertained for a week or two but didn’t compete against the Gameboy. A good holiday toy. The noise was a bit irritating after a while."
