Update: Closed …and the winner is:
Sharon Kay Boeding says Taboo would be the prize I would choose.
As you know … Hasbro is one of my favorite toy companies. They have such fun games, and as silly as this sounds, I love their packaging. They put great care and detail into making sure that toys go back into the boxes from which they came and I have to tell you … I love that!! But even more than that, they just seem to “get” families, fun and game time. We got to review a whole slew of fun games this month and I am excited to share with you our opinions about our favorites (I am also excited to share that thanks to Hasbro, some of these toys are also going to a family that SheSaved adopted for Christmas!) Also…right now you can get FREE Shipping on the Hasbro Website, no minimums!
Bop It! XT: Fun for the whole family, Bop It is like a modern-day, handheld “Simon Says.” After pulling the blue knob to activate the game, just follow the voiced directions and get ready to bop it, twist it, pull it, or shout it! But make sure you do it before the buzzer sounds! Designed for ages eight and up, the game will have you showing off your bopping talent by being the first to “stay alive.” Thoughts? I honestly never understood what the hype with this toy was… umm…until I started playing it. It’s a bit addictive. You know a toy is good when your kids are begging you to let them have a turn: “Mommmmmmmm…. it’s our turn!” lol. Loads of fun!
Taboo: Taboo, the laugh out loud, out-of-your-seat game of forbidden words is refreshed in 2011 with all new cards, a game changing die and a new taboo buzzer sound for those players who just can’t help but use those taboo words. Refreshed card content for an adult favorite. Game nights are a perfect way to gather friends together for a low-stress evening full of hysterical moments no one will forget. Taboo, the laugh out loud, out-of-your-seat game of forbidden words. All new cards, a game changing die and a new taboo buzzer sound. Recommended age, adult. Players 2 or more. Thoughts? We love games, and this is such a great one when you have a group … so much laughing and conversation. One of our favorites for sure!
Rubik’s Cube: Scramble the colored squares on this 3-inch by 3-inch puzzle cube. Then, twist, turn, and rotate to match up the colors again on all nine sides! There are billions of potential combinations, but only one solution! Can you master the mysteries of the Rubik’s Cube? Thoughts? And old classic, but they kids love it! What I like about this toy is that it works for all age groups … everyone enjoys fiddling with it. Great price point too!
Captain America Mask and Shield: Built especially for the Allies’ own super soldier, this indestructible shield became a symbol of strength for people around the world. In the hands of Captain America, it is a powerful weapon. Now you’ve got the chance to wield the shield of the most skilled fighter in the world! Thoughts? What a neat toy for your little budding super hero! This is so well made (not flimsy) and I could just see the super hero come alive when my son was “fighting off bad guys” with this thing! (I even had some fun fighting off bad guys myself, lol…this toy rocks!)
Mechtech Ultimate Optimus Prime:Over the years, OPTIMUS PRIME has proved himself to be not only a great leader, but also one of the most powerful warriors in the universe. He is trained in the use of almost any weapon, incorporating them into his combat tactics without effort. He is a walking arsenal with unstoppable combat capabilities. Thoughts? This is one tough dude… and I cannot tell you why, but my son is so drawn to these things…he instantly knows how they work and can literally play with these for hours! Hands down…one super cool toy here!!
