The latest craze for boys ... handy pocket sized imagination battle toys perfect for any young boy (and big boys) age 3+
You know how it is, your darling small child asks for a Bakugan set for Christmas, apparently Santa knows all about them (he has had so many on the lists he has been sent that he has done a quick Google search) and now you have to go out and buy some too.
So what are they? To be truthfully honest - I think only small boys really know the answer ;)
as far as my Barbiefied brain can work out you play with them like a game.
You get a pop-out mat the play upon (saves loosing them under the sofa) and some cards, using the cards on the mat you then roll the plastic battle toys over the cards. Special 'Gate Cards' are magic and cause the plastic toys to pop up and transform into mighty warriors .... for endless hours of battlement and pleasure.
There ... see... simple.
Containing 3 Bakugan balls, 3 Gate Cards and 3 Ability Cards, the Starter Pack is the perfect way to start building your Bakugan collection and get brawling. These small spheres magnetically morph into powerful Bakugan warriors when they roll onto the cards. So you only need a few to start you off ... then if the craze continues your children can collect the rest of the set.

If you search online there are also beanbags, duvet sets, curtains etc... themed with Bakugan - so they must be pretty big in a boys world. They even have their own cartoon series on cartoon Network everyday at 4pm!
Unfortunately they were not met with much enthusiasm in our house as Emma is obviously a girl and into girly stuff.
Bakugan Battle Brawlers have been named in Toys R Us hot toy list for Christmas 2009. I can see why they are popular as they are pocket sized, require no batteries and are pretty inexpensive compared with other toys.
Definitely a great stocking filler for young children this Christmas -
Available from all good toy retailers.
