Bungees – Summer’s Hottest New Collectible Toy
I was contacted by Jazwares to test out their newest boy collectible toy – Bungees. I was provided a sample for review. Any opinions expressed are my own.
My son loves toys, but really what kid doesn’t? He especially loves toy collections. I usually get more items that are for girls so he’s always excited when a package comes that’s for him. As soon as I opened the box he was super excited and couldn’t wait to try the game. He didn’t even bother reading the directions. Once he realized that he needed my help he asked me to help him get the game set up and he was ready to play with his sister. My son is only six so he did need some help with reading the rules and figuring out the game but for a boy that’s a little older this would be perfect for him and his friends. The object of the game is simple, you flick your Bungee onto a score disk to score points. We received a Series One Deluxe Pack which included four Bungees, four score discs, four collector cards, and a collector board that doubles as a practice board.
My son enjoys playing Bungees with his sister and he’s already been asking for more characters to add to his collection. The Bungees are small toys and the more you collect the more pieces you will have. I would suggest getting a storage container for your score discs and your Bungees. As a note to parents the Bungees do have a magnet inside, so they may stick to other surfaces. Storing them when not in use would be the best thing to do.
Starting with a starter pack is a great way to get started with your Bungees but the game is very fun and addictive and soon you’ll surely want to add more Bungees to your collection. The game is also more fun with more people playing. The game has beginner and advanced rules but we stuck to beginner rules using only the scores on the front of the score discs. For more information on playing and the game check out these Bungees videos.
“Due to their interactive play pattern, collectability and fun factor, Bungees are going to be the hit of the school yard,” said Laura Zebersky, EVP of Global Sales & Licensing, Jazwares Inc. “They’re easy to use and each Bungee brings to life it’s very own story”. Having tried Bungees with my son I have to agree that your son will love playing this game. My son already added to his Christmas list.
Flick-to-Stick and Stick-to-Score Bungees are the hot new boy’s collectable from Jazwares launching across North America this summer.
Jazwares Inc. has established itself as a well-respected leader in the toy industry with its focus on creativity, innovation and function and is continuing its streak of success with the launch of the new Flick-To-Stick Bungees product line.
Bungees are unique and brightly colored characters that have an even more interesting story. Formed at the core of the Earth, after an asteroid strike millions of years ago, Bungees are both earthly and alien. Bungees have evolved with unique features, including an inner magnetism, which allow them to compete for territorial dominance. The unique play pattern gives users multiple ways to play by aiming their Bungees at scoring targets; a flick of the finger is all it takes to compete, collect and win in this hot new magnetic game.
A battleground arena, disk launchers, playing cards and scoring disks will all enhance the play pattern and allow players to hone their skills to become Bungees Champions.
48 characters will be available in major retailers across North America as part of the Series 1 launch. They will retail from $3.99 for a single pack to $24.99 for the Battleground Arena. An additional 48 characters will be available later in 2014.
