They are collectable, you can race them, you can battle them, they come in cool designs ("radical racers")...what more could a kid want??!
The just-launched DaGeDar Supercharged Battle Balls (http://www.dagedar.com ) will be coming to stores this summer. It has the excitement of racing tracks (we have many of those in our house- K'Nex, Hot Wheels and we even have a cool marble track but you can't race them) combined with the fun of social collection and competition (like Pokemon). Awesome!
With 3 young boys (and a girl) in my house we are always looking for exciting and challenging new toys that don't involve the television. This is definitely a toy to keep the boys busy!!
Check out this neat commercial about DeGeDar Battle Balls. It had my 9 year old son oohing and aaaahing, jumping up and down and pleading for them for his summer birthday! He was especially interested in the variety of racers. He loves to trade with his friends and these BEG to be traded. It's a unique twist on cards. I was a pog and slap-band kid so I recall the lure!
*I blogged about this product not only for a chance to WIN them from MomSelect but because the idea is fantastic! It's already been added to my son's 10th birthday wish list!!
