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.
