DaGeDar is a new, collectable ball game with many accessories. It is from the makers of Zhu Zhu pets, and is designed to appeal to kids who love to collect things.Â The balls come in sets and are designed to be traded with friends.Â Â I received a huge collection of DaGeDar toys to have my 12 year old son review.
It included a two lane battle jump raceway, a basic ball set,Â launcher, and a spinner.Â My son had fun building the raceway, and setting it all up.Â Then you use it to play games like â€œBattle Jump Challenge Matchâ€ where each player chooses a ball and drops it down the track at the same time. The ball that successfully reaches the end of the track first wins the round.Â The company has other suggested game play ideas on their website.Â Here is a video of my son racing two balls down the track.
As the video shows the balls race very fast, and speed is always a hit with young boys.Â Each DaGeDar is made from a weighted ball bearing, and has a character face and code.Â The idea of the game is for the players to set their own rules for game-play based on the playerâ€™s own creativity and imagination.
Overall my son thought DaGeDar was fun, but it didnâ€™t hold his interest very long.Â I think he is at the older age range for this toy, and younger children would probably get more out of it.Â Also the open ended design your own rules aspect of the game would make it more fun with a group or in a party situation.Â When you are looking for creativity a group to brainstorm ideas is the way to go.Â The DaGeDar website has tournament ideas and competition brackets you can print out, and playing up the competitive aspect would make it exciting.
Thanks to Mom Select I have a DaGeDar basic ball set and a spinner or carrying case to give away.
