I must admit that I have mixed feelings about the whole craziness around the new trend that the kids are following these days. Bands can be found everywhere and up until now they only thing you could do with them were to wear them and trade them.
But here comes a new twist to the “band” collection craze…. Battle Bands are now on the market and you can play with them!
The Battle Board is a fun way for the boys in your family to battle their bands against each other. Points are assigned depending on where the band has landed on the board as well as the type of band it is. There are four category of bands: water, earth, fire, and the rare “black band”.
My boys are all about battles so I am pretty sure that they will enjoy playing with the Battle Bands. I can see them competing in the living room during and afternoon. I am almost certain that their little sister will join the fun. My only concern would be the fact that we find that the bands might break easily. The other day, my husband was showing them how to stretch bands and let them go (like elastics) but in his demonstration he broke the ape band of our daughter. She wasn’t too happy about it. Kids tend not to realize how strong they can be and I suspect that some bands will find their way to garbage city… Nevertheless, I think they will have fun with the Battle Bands and fighting against each other.
The Battle Bands are available in three different sets. The starter packs include seven Battle Bands, seven Warrior Cards and one Battle Mat. Booster Packs are wonderful to enhance your collection and include five Battle Bands as well as five Warrior Cards. Finally the Rumble Packs include fifteen Battle Bands, fifteen cards and one deluxe Battle Board.
The packs can be found at Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target, Trans World Entertainment and Fry’s Stores throughout the US.
I think these could be a wonderful stocking gift for your boys…
