It is the game where you have to fit about 30 shapes into the spaces against the clock before they all pop back up at you . We have a very old M&S version that the timer keep stopping and dd loves it . I recall the shapes were red the bit they fitted in blue and the extras yellow !

Also the one which is a square with slides/ pulls each side with the balls that you pull on or 2 spaces and they might fall down holes or not.

Heeellllp please I cannot remember the names , tried looking on Amazon but got lost . My guess is that there were M&B or something similar as before the ark there were mainly them .

WIll be back later as have to go and do shopping ! Thanks in advance

Now called time shock on amazon

Hawkins Bazaar always used to do something like this. Am on my phone so can't link but it's on their website and is called Time Shock.

I can't think of the name of the other one, but can 'see' it, so can't help with that one.

Is the other one 'stay alive' ?

And I think the pull / slide game was Stay Alive which is also on Amazon but only 2nd hand so it's probably cheaper on eBay.

Oh, and don't type "Stay alive" into Amazon with your DD nearby! [poster of nervous disposition]

The wooden slide/pull game I had was called Labyrinth. I think Brio do a version. now? Re: the shape game,I'm sure I have seen that in a shop recently. Might even have been in our Tesco Extra. Will keep an eye out for you!

Not the original but the principle is the same here

Wonderful , fantastic thank you !!!! I have had a look at the time shock and it is the same size as the M&S one we have and dd2 finds the bits too fidly... However as I am abroad I will ask parents to look in Tesco extra as well. Otherwise the 'real' version seems to be on sale in the USA and I have a cousin visiting next month so might see if he has any case space.

Stay Alive was the other one , yes I remember now , will also look at Labyrinth.
Oh yes re the arguments I was always blue and my sister white it was a good game and no fiddly things to set up as so many of them have now.

YOu guys are great I knew I would find help here ! Thanks
