Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?

What It Is
In Whac-A-Mole Molehill Mania, the moles are hiding inside the molehill. Players grab a mallet and smack away on the lever at the base of the molehill. With every smack, moles fly out of the molehill and onto the ground. Players then use the mallets to collect the moles. Be the first player to fill your mallet with moles to win. There are three different ways to play. In the first level, the object of the game is just to get the most moles. In the second level, collect all the moles of your color and then race to be the first to collect the only red mole. Level three assigns point values to the moles. Get the moles with the highest value to get the highest score. Whac-A-Mole Molehill Mania comes with a molehill, two mallets, 11 moles, and instructions. It is for two players.
Why It’s Fun
Whac-A-Mole Molehill Mania is a new take on the classic Whac-A-Mole arcade game. Kids will have a lot of fun using the mallets to get the moles out of the molehill and then trapping the moles inside the mallet's head to win. The three different game levels offer appropriate challenges based on the age and skill of the players.
Who It’s For
Whac-A-Mole Molehill Mania is for ages 4 and up.
What to Be Aware of
Players will need a little bit of dexterity and hand-eye coordination to hit the mallets against the lever on the molehill.
Play in a reasonably open area, as the moles tend to fly about. So, for example, you don't want them landing under furniture—unless that's the kind of challenge you're looking for.
