We all know how painful long drives with kids can be! Well here is a product we found for $5 at Kmart that keeps kids entertained! Meet Simon, an 80’s throwback toy thats designed to dazzle with lights whilst challenging kids’ memories!

The concept is simple: Simon throws out random light combinations. The combinations get more difficult over time. The player must copy the combinations exactly to pass each level. If you do it right, you get a happy little song! If not, you get an equally obvious “wrong answer!” musical response. It’s simplicity is also its brilliance – its simple, but challenging. It’s engaging, but helps aid your memory. Perfect for a road trip!

Granted, after a while the retro music and sounds could get annoying, but this is far less annoying than the usual road trip grumbles, right?
