The popular childrenâ€™s playground activity – where kids attempt to avoid touching the floor at all costs, leaping from one object to another – launched as a game for Autumn/Winter last year and was well-received across various retail channels. However, the game has gone up another level in 2021 with sales already surpassing last yearâ€™s performance and strong listings for the coming Autumn/Winter season. During the same period, the game has become the No.1 selling game in one prominent toy retailer.
Just last weekend, the game was shared by reality TV star, Billie Shepherd, via Instagram Stories to her 2.3 million followers. The post featured her two children, Nelly and Arthur, enjoying the game at home, adding further fuel to the sell-out success of the title.
There is also a Netflix TV show of the same title that brings further awareness of the concept to an even wider audience.
â€œThe Floor is Lava game brings to life the traditional playground favourite, turning every floor into an exciting challenge, with action cards to vary the play each timeâ€ says Marketing Manager Ben Hogg.
â€œSales are continuing to rise outside of the peak sales period and the organic celebrity endorsement we are seeing come through is testament to how much fun families continue to have with the gameâ€.
