what's in the box

WHAT’S IN THE BOX (BLIP TOYS)

  • The game, based on the viral YouTube sensation, has been translated to retail so now everyone can easily play this in their home.
  • The game includes a deck of score cards and 4 black blind bags (to hide items found throughout the house so other players can’t see what one another found to place inside).
  • There is 10 second timer built into the box, so once someone’s hands go inside, they will have 10 second to feel and guess what it is.
  • Doors can be shut, so if there’s more than 2 players, everyone will have an opportunity to guess what they think is inside and write it down on the scorecard before the “challenger” reveals to everyone what’s inside the box.
  • Age: 4+
  • MSRP: $21.99
  • Available: August 2019
