ROBIN'S TOY RECOMMENDATION: LOOPZ(tm) FROM MATTEL
It's a really original new electronic, interactive game from Mattel, and my 7 year old son is loving it. I must admit, I'm intrigued as well.
LOOPZ(tm) is "The Memory Game that gets you Moving!"
Combining music, memory and motion, LOOPZ(tm) challenges your rhythm and reflexes, as you try to repeat its changing patterns of light and music. You can make your own music, match the lights, keep a song going, etc. There are many fun and creative possibilities.
Accommodating up to 4 players and with 7 different game modes, LOOPZ(tm) is fun for both kids and adults! Each time you play, it can be an entirely different experience. You can make LOOPZ(tm) your own.
Kids can tell their friends, and launch a LOOPZ(tm) band! (No lessons required.)
For a little taste of what LOOPZ(tm) can do, check out the LOOPZ(tm) Band. Five guys got together to produce one-of-a-kind songs using nothing but the LOOPZ(tm) music and memory game.
