Ready to flick, stack, spin and attack? Then you need some Bonkazonks.

Whoa. I had no idea these little things could do so much. In fact, I think they are kind of silly. Not the most eco-friendly toy either, I am thinking, unless they are made out of recycled plastic or something…

Still. My Kids like these things. Go figure. I asked to do a review of Bonkazonks because I was curious about them and my kids are into anything with The Avengers right now.

So what are they? Well, Bonkazonks are little (like 1.5 inches tall) collectible stunt toys from Hasbro that feature marvel super hero designs. Kids can play live stunt games (flicking them and building with them and spinning them) or online with them at and they come with cards that feature extra stunt things to do. There are over 100 to choose from and are sold in various sets.

We got a face case starter set, with 4 characters

My kids thought they were hilarious and had plenty of fun with them. Note: for ages 5 and up (they are small).

Bottom line? If you have collectible loving kids these are fun for them!

Surprisingly Fun!!

This game is so fun! All of us like it. I like that it has a soft sound level and it can be played with another or solo. The actual toy seems very sturdy and the voice giving the commands is just amusing.

For those who haven’t tried the orginal Bop-It, this game is hysterical. The game gives you commands to Bop it, Twist it, Pull it, Spin it, Flick it and Shake it! And each time you get a command correct, you get another command and the game goes even faster. The music is catchy as well!

This seems so simple and yet it is so fun.

I recommend for ages 6 and up, although the box says 8, Em loves this!

Approximate retail price: $24.99. (Includes 3 “AAA” batteries). See more on Hasbro Games.

Available on Amazon right now for $18!  Bop It XT

I get to give one away! Some little (or big) child will love this game!

Quick and Fun, Ratuki!

Heather —  February 1, 2011

With my crew, I am always on the lookout for games that might be fun and also don’t make the kids fight. When my family humors me and plays a game or two, we have a great time.

And Ratuki is fun! The game play is fast and simple, a good game to pull out in a small group and just play a few rounds. No big board to pull out and serious game to interrupt…The kids enjoyed it, and even put up with their baby sister who obviously got it that when you win, you shout RATUKI!

The game includes 170 cards, 5 reminder cards and instructions.

Ages 8 and up, for 2 to 5 players. Game retails at approximately $9.99
