Answer Buzzers Review

When I first saw the Answer Buzzers, I immediately thought how good these would have been when I was a teacher. Used in quizzes  I think they would have kept the pupils on task and made a great plenary - once the excitement of the silly noises had passed. If you click the link above you can hear what the buzzers sound like. Middle man likes the doorbell style one best!

I didn't, however, think that my children would have loved playing with them as much as they do. They are a bit too young at the moment to use them in a quiz style game. But in usual child style they made up their own games for them. Their favourite game was a simple memory game: "Press orange, blue, green"

At first glance they appear quite expensive but they are really well made. Each takes 2 AAA batteries which are not included, so again that adds to the cost of them. There are so many uses of them, I would really recommend them, and will be used for many years to come. Boys in nature are competitive, so there will be many opportunities to use them in learning games in the future.

I am also competitive and am hoping that Christmas family fortunes and charades will be brightened up with these buzzers and there will be no arguments over who buzzed first!

Learning Rescources are currently running a facebook competition where you can win the buzzers too. Their website is also worth a look, as I have bought a number of their products for Christmas this year and am really impressed by the quality of the products, and their customer service.

I was given the buzzers for the purpose of this review, but all the opinions contained here are my own.
