Toys Kids Want This Easter – Bakugan Battle Brawlers

April 6, 2009

Bakugan Toy Review:

The popular and fun anime TV series “Bakugan Battle Brawlers” has spawned this strategic game that pits a variety of “Bakugan warriors” — such as “Juggernoids,” “Fear rippers,” and “Robatallians” — against each other for world domination. With this Bakugan Starter Pack, kids aged 4 and above will enjoy the challenge of earning points by rolling their Bakugan (or shooting them from a launcher) onto magnetic cards where the plastic spheres burst open to reveal the fearsome warrior creature inside. Kids will also love the way the Bakugan transform suddenly into warrior mode, and fans of the show will have an especially good time with the game.

Ready, Set, Play!
The mission of Bakugan game play is to battle against other Bakugan to win the points awarded on the cards by getting your Bakugan to land on card. Players will love pretending to be one of the various characters in the show, such as the fiery 12-year-old leader “Dan” or the wise “Marucho,” and they gain a deeper understanding of the cards and warriors as they play.

The Starter Pack includes instructions, making it an ideal way for newbies to get started with this fun and exciting game. The game itself is fairly straightforward, but if your child has never played before, you might have to help him or her to understand the rules — after reading and understanding them yourself. While some of the plastic Bakugan pieces are small and could easily get lost, others, like the Bakugan Deka, are as big as a softball.

The Starter Pack comes with three Bakugan and three cards — perfect for kids who are new to the game and who want to try it out. The illustrated instructions are easy to follow. The booster pack comes with one single bakugan and one magnetic card.

Exciting Magnetic Action
The Bakugan come in lots of colors and varieties that make them fun to collect and trade. Most of them are pocket-sized and easy for your child to carry around and bring over to their friend’s houses. Having a magnet that activates the warriors is a clever idea that adds excitement to the game. The Bakugan Launcher (sold separately) is an additional accessory, with three shooting modes (“curve,” “angle, and “distance”), but it doesn’t come with any instructions (however, it is pretty straightforward to use).

Room for the Imagination
I like that this game combines skill (aiming your Bakugan) with strategy (placement of the cards). I also enjoyed the way the warriors pop open on the magnetic cards — although sometimes they do it even when they don’t land on the cards. Being unfamiliar with the TV show, I felt a little lost at first in the world of Bakugan. But with the help of the colorful, animated Bakugan Web site, I got the gist of what the game is about and how to play. Our attempts to fire the launcher proved somewhat tricky. But the launcher isn’t necessary. Kids can simply roll the Bakugan like marbles for a fun and action-packed game with their friends.

The latest release of the Special Attack Bakugan Series is here and it features some really cool new creatures. The Double Head Preyas Bakugan is my favorite of them all. Every kid is asking for the Double Head Preyas II which features two different G-Power heads. One end will have a 450G power rating and the other side will have a 650G power rating….now isn’t that cool. I love playing with this Double Headed Preyas II creature….most of the kids freak out when they see that it can open up at both ends.

What is the hottest toy this Christmas?

There is a clear winner: Bakugan toys.

What is Bakugan Toys?

Every kid is asking for this new game based on an old concept (ie. Marbles). It is based on a show on Cartoon Network and is about a game where players roll Bakugan toys onto metal “gate cards” that then transform into monsters that do battle. Think Transformers and Pokemon on steroids and a sprinking of Magic: The Gathering and you’ll get the idea.

Who is the Bakugan game aimed at?

It’s aimed at 6 to 12 year old boys but I have seen 40 year old fathers battling it out in the Bakugan arena. The concept, cartoon and all the marketing is all geared towards the younger age group but don’t by a prune…it is open to all ages. Great lengths have gone to ensure that the game plays very much like it looks in the cartoon.

Where can I find the names of the Bakugans?

I have included a link to a poster that I got from Spin Master Toys. This should point you in the right direction. I had a few of these posters in our store but they were in high demand. Just click the image below to reveal a detailed high resolution poster that you can print out.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Bakugan Battle Brawlers

November 23, 2008

Bakugan Battle Brawlers by Spin master toys

Bakugan B2 Bakupearl

There are sooo many Bakugan creatures (from Series 1,2 to B2 Bakupearls) that your adult brain can get fried just trying to remember them all. It is amazing how our little loved ones know it all and can probably beat us at a Bakugan Trivia Game. I started playing Bakugan with kids that came into our store (yeah, I must have been bored) and actually found it fun. I also got a chance to learn from the kids. I normally play all games that we carry in the store to get a feel of the game play. Half the games I test are usually boring however, I got kind of hooked on bakugan! The game has flaws no doubt but if you get the right collection of balls and cards there is a very nice game here. Below are some popular questions parents ask me in the store before attempting to buy bakugan:

dividerQ: What should you look for when buying bakugans?

A: All kids want bakugan creatures that have a high G power rating (ie. 540G or 670G would be pretty powerful in gameplay). For this reason, we open up thousands of bakugans and sell them loose (so kids can get the specific G-Power rating bakugan they want).   When you buy sealed packs, you are unable to see what the G power is.  We usually open up 10-12 Starter packs before we find a really high G-power Bakugan and that is why they are priced so expensively.   Once they have been removed from the package, the bakugans are called ‘LOOSE’.   If you are buying for a very young child then the G power rating might not be so important.  However, don’t be surprised that your 6 or 7 year old will know about the value of high G power bakugans.  These kids talk among themselves and are very well educated in Bakugan.

divider

Q: What color should I get and what are the names of these different colors?

A: You should buy the color your kid requests. Every kid has their own preferences so make sure you ask them before buying. Below are the names of the basic colors so when your child ask for ‘Pryus’, now you know what color you need to buy. Don’t buy random colors as I have so many parents return to buy the specific color their child wanted. It can save you a trip back to the store and headaches by just asking your child what color they want.  If you happen to see them at your local Wal-Mart or Toys R Us, just concentrate on buying the colors your child likes….you can always return the extra ones you don’t need (however, that is very unlikely).   Be agressive…know the color you want and attack!!!  There will be nothing left if you are unsure and plan to return later on.

  • Red = Pyrus
  • Tan = SubTerra
  • Blue = Aquos
  • Black = Darkus
  • Green = Ventus

divider

Q: What is the difference between Booster and Starter pack?

A: Booster pack consist of a single bakugan. Starter pack consist of 3 random colored bakugans. Each pack will come with metal card(s).  Since each bakugan is sealed in their packaging, you will probably be unable to see what the G-Power rating for each creature.  Pictured below (Booster Packs on the left and Starter Packs on the right):

Which size Bakugans are the best?

November 14, 2008

We reorganized the Bakugan section in our store, but what you may not know, was we did this in order to make room for the newest line of Bakugan! B2, or Bigger Brawlers, as they are called, is the newest line to be produced, they include all new characters and are about 1.5 times the size of the original Bakugan! We just ran our 3rd Bakugan tournament (November 8th) and it was a huge success with tons of kids battling it out in the Battle Brawler Arena.

Number one question I get about Bakugans:

Q: What are the different sizes of Bakugan available and which one is the one I should be buying?

A: Well, well….this is really two questions. Let me try and answer this. There are currently three different sizes of Bakugan. Series 1 Regular sized are the first ones released over a year ago and Series 2 was release in November/2008 (slighly bigger than regular marbles).  Brand New B2 – Bakupearl just came out recently and are about the size of a ping pong ball. Deka was released a few months ago and are the size of a softball. The most popular sized bakugans are the Series 1, 2 and B2 Bakupearls….so you can’t go wrong buying those. The Deka are less popular because they are big and difficult to carry around.
