As a blogger I get to review some pretty cool products, a lot of time those products are for my kiddos, and occasionally we receive a product that instantly makes me “the coolest mom ever” (according to them anyway). When we had the opportunity to review the hot new toy DaGeDar I had no idea that it would quickly become one of my kids all time favorite toys, but it SO did!
When I first heard of DaGeDar (which I have no idea how to pronounce by the way) I knew little about the product, but I did know that they were made by Cepia, the makers of one of my children’s favorite toys, Zhu Zhu Pets so I instantly knew they would be a hit! Before I tell you our opinion of DaGeDar, let me tell you a little more about the toys!
From the moment you pick up a DaGeDar ball, you know it's something different. Drop the ball down the track and swoosh - you are hooked. This simple game of speed and skill is like no other. Innovative, thrilling, and addicting, all you want is more DaGeDar!
In Dimension 33, there live characters called DaGeDar™.
Powered through their emotional charge, DaGeDar™ break the veil from Dimension 33, which captures the DaGeDar™ spirits into a supercharged ball form.
Each character has a distinct personality trait; different motivations drive their races. They might use elemental powers of strength, cunning or their trader’s wit in their drive for victory.
When MomSelect offered me the chance to review some of the new DaGeDar toys I couldn’t resist and when they arrived here it only took a few minutes for me to see how HUGE these toys are going to be this holiday season! We received a DaGeDar basic ball set, track set, launcher,a spinner and carrying case to review and it didn’t take long before we had the track set up, the launcher attached, and 4 kiddos ready to have some fun! And while I could sit here all day and tell you how much my kiddos love these toys (and they do) I think seeing is truly believing so I’ll let you judge for yourself!
In addition to the DaGeDar ball sets there are lots of very cool accessories to make playing with the DaGeDar balls so much more fun! The Dual Top Speed Start Gate allows players to launch two balls at once with this dual launcher! Fire speeding balls at your opponent, or send them racing down the tracks for a wicked stunt. The High Speed Stunt Jump Track lets you send your balls into high gear with the looping High Speed Stunt Jump Track! Aim the starting slope to control your speed, then launch through the hoop and over the gap into the score funnel. This track is not for the faint of heart! And you definitely need to check out the Two Lane Battle Jump Raceway that can balls hurtling down a near-vertical drop and into a high-speed loop! Launch over the gap and knock away your opponent on the way to the finish gate. Serious Ballers only! With so many cool DaGeDar ball sets and accessories your child (or even you) will spend hours racing, jumping, and doing wicked awesome tricks!
I think my oldest daughter said it best when she described DaGeDar as “kinda like cars on a racetrack, but SO much cooler”. I was amazed at how well all of the kids seemed to like DaGeDar and how long the toys kept their attention. I should probably admit that I loved playing with the DaGeDar balls as much as my kiddos, I found myself becoming strangely competitive with my children as we were all playing, I mean, reviewing the toys. It’s not that often that I get so excited about my children reviewing a toy, but DaGeDar is just awesome and they agree! As a matter of fact, this is one of the few toys I can remember (besides Zhu Zhu Pets because they LOVE them) that has kept my children’s attention for more than a few days and that is NOT an easy thing to do. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Cepia hit a home run with DaGeDar!!!
I have a feeling that DaGeDar will be at the top of lots of little boys (and little girls) holiday wish list!
You can purchase DaGeDar ball sets and accessories at Toys R Us and Walmart stores in Phoenix, AZ right now, but you can check the DaGeDar website to find out when DaGeDar will be hitting the toy store shelves in your area!
