Pure adrenaline: the exciting action & reaction games from Noris

When action and reaction games from Noris are played, thrills are the order of the day! It's all about clever combinations, maximum concentration and lightning-fast reactions. Anyone for whom the excitement of playing can't be big enough will make the right choice with a reaction and action game.

What are action & reaction games?

Action and reaction games are games that put reaction speed and attention to the test. In one way or another, the game content always aims to reward the player with the quickest hand and the best perceptive ability with victory – adrenaline rush included!

What is the added value of action & reaction games?

The special games are products with a great developmental effect. In detail, your child will benefit from our action and reaction games for children in these development areas:

Promotion of cognition

Since the games focus on speed, they encourage quick thinking. They address the ability to combine quickly and not infrequently also logic.

Language promotion

Many of the games involve language components, for example certain words and phrases that have to be said at the right moment. In addition, when playing with family and friends, they naturally chat and discuss. This improves your child's language skills.

Promoting the ability to make decisions

Can you keep a cool head and make the right decision quickly? Action and quick games train decision-making skills, an important competence that we benefit from every day.

Promoting social interaction

When playing together, the focus is on social interaction. There is a lively exchange between the players so that your child can practise interpersonal interaction.

Promoting attention

If you don't pay attention, you lose. Accordingly, playing the reaction and action games effectively promotes attention and concentration.

Promoting reaction speed

As already described, quick reactions lead to victory in these games. Consequently, the reaction speed is also expanded in a playful way.

Promoting fine motor skills

Some fast games also require some fine motor skills. Your child learns to coordinate small movements precisely and to execute simple sequences of movements faster and more accurately.

Promotion of hand-eye coordination

How well can your child match what he does with his hands with what he perceives through his eyes? Hand-eye coordination, which plays a central role in learning to write, for example, is another skill that is improved when playing action and reaction games.

From what age are quick games & reaction games suitable for children?

This depends largely on the game content and the developmental stage of the individual child. Some reaction and action games are suitable for children as young as three, others are more suitable for preschoolers or children as old as eight. The rule is: the more complex the rules and the more demanding the game content, the older the child must be to be able to master the game.

To find out which age groups a game is intended for, you can look at the manufacturer's age recommendation. Furthermore, you should assess the developmental stage of your child yourself and decide based on this which games he or she can already handle.

What should you look for when buying action & reaction games?

To help you decide on a suitable action and reaction game for children, we will now have a closer look at the most important buying criteria:

Difficulty level and game variant(s)

The difficulty level of a game should depend on the youngest player so that he or she is not overtaxed. But beware: if the quick game is clearly too easy, it may become boring after a short time. This can be remedied by different game variants that bring more variety into the game and ensure that a product remains interesting for as long as possible.

Number of players, playing time and set-up time

Before buying, think about how many players the game is intended for, how long a round can last and how much time you can take to set it up. With this rough information in mind, you can directly exclude some products and shortlist others.


Don't forget to have a look at the scope of delivery of the products. Here you can find out which accessories are included and which parts have to be purchased elsewhere.


Look for appropriate quality and stable, durable materials. After all, you want to be able to play reaction and action games for as long as possible.
