When Josh Baskin returned home after his "Big" adventure, he took more than he should, he took an exciting prototype toy from MacMillan Toys.
You are the competition and you want that prototype!
His bedroom - that must be where he's hidden it.

We played as a group of two and had a really great time. I did feel some puzzles was slightly disproportionate to the amount of time we had in the room, but nevertheless he still really enjoyed the game. 

I did quite enjoy the theme as it is completely unique and if you've seen the film big that you'll enjoy all the references that are inside.

As others have mentioned, there is a physical puzzle that is flawed, and it gets frustrating spending ages trying to complete it! We had to bypass the puzzle in the end to progress with a penalty added to our time. IMHO, if it's so frustrating that it makes people want to attack it with a baseball bat, consider a different puzzle!

Played as a group of 2 adults and had a ball playing this game. Very nostalgic which I loved! Lots of physical puzzles, some that do involve skill and general perseverance after quite a bit of frustration. The theme was very unique which was a breath of fresh air!

Reviews by escape room review sites

I’m a sucker for rooms that play on 80s nostalgia so it was probably a given that I would like this game. If you’re looking for a light-hearted game, then for sheer fun you’ll be hard pressed to find something more appropriate than Shimmy Shimmy.
If Conspiracist is a complex headscratching composition with myriad strands and a slightly sinister edge then SSCP is a joyous wodge of bubblegum pop, to get you skipping about, despite yourself, wearing a big goofy grin. 
The 80’s themed Shimmy Shimmy Cocoa Pop is a fun packed hour that will be a trip down memory lane for many! Rate the Escapes review this playful escape room.
