Yulu Toys – Break Free & Safe Breaker – Stock Your Games Shelf for Summer

Break Free & Safe Breaker

From YULU Toys 

ages 6+

It is almost summer time! One more week and then school is OUT! I do my best to try to keep my boys busy during the summer months, but the weather doesn’t always cooperate so I like to make sure our Games Shelf is stocked, up-to-date, and includes some new games to keep them busy on days when we can’t go out. We have all the staples (and we love them) but we also like to include unique games for added variety (and to keep the boredom blues at bay). This summer, we are adding Break Free & Safe Breaker to our ever-expanding board game collection!

Break Free – Pick the Lock & Escape

Break Free from YULU Toys is a new, challenging action skill game full of urgency, suspense, and tons of fun. The objective: players must race to pick the lock on their handcuff as quickly as possible and before everyone else!

Break Free requires two or more players. Inside your Break Free game box you will find:  4 handcuffs with chains, 4 lock picks, 4 easy level mazes (green), 4 intermediate level mazes (yellow), 4 advanced level mazes (red) and 16 tokens.

Each game will consist of three rounds: green (easy), yellow (intermediate), and red (advanced).

To start, you handcuff yourself together and insert a maze into each handcuff. Using the lock pick (the boy’s called it a key), each player tries to pick the lock on their handcuff as fast as they can. The player to break free the quickest receives a token the corresponds with the maze colour. On the back of each token are points, and the player with the most points after playing all three rounds is the winner!


Out of the two games that we tested, Break Free was the boy’s favourite game. Why? One word: handcuffs. Hayden and Kristopher wanted to make up their own rules and turned it into a cops and robbers game, but they still followed the rules with the mazes and the “keys,” taking turns on who was the police officer and who was the “bad guy.” To prevent any fighting about who wins and who loses, we left out the tokens and didn’t keep score.

It was fun trying to be the fastest “bad guy” to unlock the handcuffs, and you never know how quickly you’ll be able to do it. Sometimes I was able to unlock mine within only a few seconds, and sometimes it took closer to a minute (or more) to get the handcuffs to pop open. I liked that we were able to successfully complete the game in less than half an hour, and the kids enjoyed it (because handcuffs). It is rare that Hayden and Kristopher can sit together playing the same game, but they managed to cooperate and play Break Free without any fighting or bickering (which is high praise indeed)!

Safe Breaker – Spy Scan & Solve 

yulu toys

Calling all top-secret spies! Safe Breaker from YULU Toys is a new electronic game that combines spy skill, memory and a little bit of luck, challenging players to crack the code and break into the safe.

Each Safe Breaker game comes with one spy code vault, one spy stethoscope, 15 golden coins, coin stickers, 18 numbered game cards, and requires 2-4 players. You will also need 3 AA batteries (not included).

Game play is easy. You pick a numbered card and turn the safe combination to match. Next, use the fingerprint scanner to test the number. If the light is green, the safe will open and release 1, 2 or 3 coins. If the light is red, you connect the spy listening gear to the safe to hear a top-secret clue! Your clue will either tell you that the correct combination is higher or lower OR you will get sirens which means you don’t get a clue this round.

Clues include mathematical chances and luck elements which allow for a new experience with each round played.

BUT BEWARE! If you release a police coin from the safe, you will alert the police and must return all of your coins. The winner is the player who collects five golden coins OR two diamond coins first!


Out of the two games, Safe Breaker was my personal favourite. The game was pretty simple, and it was fun trying to figure out the code based on the other player’s guesses.   We played with 3 players, and our game included 6 rounds before I had 5 golden coins + 1 diamond coin (and was declared the winner).

What I liked best was the rules were simple and straight forward, and we were able to complete the game in less than 20 minutes. My only suggestion is that when playing, do not sit too close to the other players or they might be able to hear your top-secret-clue!

Over all, we are really enjoying Break Free and Safe Breaker.  I like that both games are easy to play (and can be completed in less than 20 minutes), and that the boys are able to play them on their own (meaning without me). I also like that both games are entertaining enough that I had fun playing them as well. They are different from any other game we own or have ever played, and both games make a nice unique addition to our games shelf, adding variety and freshness just in time for summer!
