Review and Giveaway: DaGeDar

I have 3 kids who were super excited to be the first to try the exciting new product from the CEPIA line of toys called DaGeDar. Thanks to MomSelect and DaGeDar for sending them to our house!

THEIR STORY
DaGeDar is brand new.  DaGeDar are spirit-like entities driven by their desire to race.  DaGeDar reside in Dmension 33, a place previously unknown to humans.  DaGeDar enter the Earth's dimension to race so that their spirit can break free, and each DaGeDar is fueled by a personal motivation whether they race for glory, fame, money, power, skill, knowledge, etc.-one thing is certain: They must race to accomplish their ultimate quest!

DaGeDar is unlike any toy you've ever seen before.  Each DaGeDar has a steel core center and a cool character graphic and code.  It is a game where "House Rules" rule.  Ballers, (kids) determine how to play and ultimately how to win.  The Baller will want to control the speed and velocity of the DaGeDar to propel the ball through the set's loops - coming up with their own stunts and tricks.  Options for game play are endless and up to the Ballers creativity and imagination.

All 3 of our kids were interested in the set.  The boys (ages 11 and 10) took the most interest and came up with tournaments, races, and different ways of playing within the first few minutes of set up.  Set up took about 20 minutes - which included opening all the packages and putting the track together. 

This is a close up of the different balls and their characters.

All of the items we received - Track Set, Basic Ball Set, Launcher, and Spinner.

As you can see, the boys had a blast playing with this.  They immediately came up with their own tournament and started racing all the balls.  The only downside is that it does have to be propped up against a couch, coffee table or something as the first downhill track for this set does not stand alone.  The set went together pretty quickly and easily.  Each of the balls also comes with a stand so they aren't rolling all over.

 

The DaGeDar website http://www.dagedar.com/ offers different ways to play and even a tournament sheet that can be printed out.  There you can also check out the different track options available and all the different DaGeDar ball sets.  Each ball also has a code to enter on the website to learn more about that ball's spirit within.  So far the DaGeDar sets are only available in Phoenix, AZ.  But, keep watching your local Toys R Us and Walmart for them to be appearing soon!  I'm sure these will be at the top of kids' Christmas lists.  You do know that Christmas is less than 5 months away, right?!
