A hole-in-one is a lot more fun with Gator Golf! With ’90s nostalgia reining supreme in modern society, one of the decade’s most cherished and beloved games for toddlers, Gator Golf, is making a comeback. Adults who grew up in the mid-’90s can now share their fond memories of the golfing game with their young children, as Goliath Games will be re-releasing Gator Golf this fall.
The loveable little gator who brought the joy into the homes of preschoolers all around America upon its initial release in 1994 can now bond children ages 3 and up with their friends and families even more. In honor of that fun connection, ShockYa is happily one of the first outlets to cover the miniature golfing toy’s re-release. To our sentimental joy, we just received a sample of Gator Golf, courtesy of Goliath Games.
In the game, which is for two to four players, children take turns using a flamingo-shaped golf club, which perfectly sized for their little hands. The players knock a golf ball into the mouth of the motorized alligator figure. When the gator gobbles up the ball, he returns it with a wack of his tail. The next player must then chase the ball, and wack it back into the gator’s mouth. Little birds sitting on the gator’s back help keep score. The first player to receive three points wins the game. As an extra treat for parent, no batteries are required for the game. Gator Golf is a perfect game for preschoolers who are working on honing their fine motor skills, while having fun with their friends and relatives at the same time.
Gator Golf’s MSRP is $19.99, and can be purchased at such retailers as Target, Walmart and Amazon. More information about the game can be found on Goliath Games’ official website.
