Shop ‘Til You Drop : It’s a trolley dash with a difference! Shop ‘Til You Drop is a great gift for those who love a good dose of retail therapy.

The die determines what gets dropped in and taken out of the trolley but be warned – overloading the trolley means it could collapse and taking it out the wrong way could send everything flying.

From a comb, car and teddy bear and to a hat, hamburger and drill – players will love stacking their trolleys with everyday items as directed by the die knowing that every move counts. Shopping’s never been so much fun thanks this fast-paced game for children
