Loopz

Do you remember playing the Simon or Bop-It games? Loopz uses new technology that takes games of action and memory to a brand new level.

Loopz gets kids (and the whole family!) moving, testing the ability to remember and duplicate a sequence of lights and sounds. This interactive device has 4 semi-circular loops that flash with patterns of light and music. Players must which players must imitate the pattern by waving their hands through the appropriate loops. Motion sensors in each loop read the action to ensure each sequence was repeated correctly. The action gets faster as the game continue so pay attention—three mistakes and you are out!

So how does the game work? Set Loopz on a flat surface, turn it on, then choose a level. Loopz will create a pattern of lights and music that must mimic by waving their hands through the hoops. The hoops are equipped with motion sensors to record players’ movements.

Loopz has seven different game modes that can be played alone or in a group of up to four. The seven modes are:
* Repeat the Beat: Repeat an ever-longer pattern of lights.
* Reflex Master: Tag as many lights as you can before time runs out.
* Rhythm and Flow: Keep the song playing by tagging the random light sequences before they turn off.
* Musicology: Build songs one instrument at a time by mimicking sequences of light.
* Freestyle DJ: Turn tracks off and on to remix the Loopz music.
* Music Studio: Play Loopz like a musical instrument. You can play 10 distinct notes with each sound.
* Versus Mode: Test your ability to remember and repeat a sequence until one player makes three mistakes.

Some of the seven games feature up to three levels to challenge players of all ages and skill levels. Loopz is recommended for kids age 5 and up. This is a game that the whole family will have a blast playing together.Even younger kids may have fun with the non-competitive modes where they can make Loopz play sound and light patterns. Loopz requires 4 AA batteries (included).

Help your kids enhance their memories, improve hand and eye coordination and increase flexibility while having loads of fun.

5 Hot Toys for Children Ages 5-7

Children between the ages of 5 and 7 are going through multiple changes. They’re starting school, socializing more, and developing their own set of hobbies and interests. Even still, it’s not hard to find great toys to keep them busy and this holiday season will present you with an opportunity to give your child something totally ‘cool.’

Bakugan 7 in 1 Maxus Dragonoid

The Bakugan toys are magnetic balls that pop open when exposed to their individualized metal cards. Based off of the popular anime TV show, this particular set includes 6 Bakugan balls that when combined make up the frightening Maxus Dragonoid monster. When playing the Bakugan game the Bakugans from this set can be used individually or together as a fearsome team. Your opponents will be shivering with fear.

Razor A Kick Scooter

The Razor A Kick Scooter is quickly becoming a favorite amongst both children and teens alike. Kids love zipping from point A to point B at what feels like warp speeds. The sturdy aluminum frame will last for years and the folding features make it easy to store or carry wherever you’re traveling. The scooter is great for children ages 5 and up and can hold weights up to 143 pounds.

Transformers Movie 2 Combiner – Construction Devastator

The Construction Devastator from the Transformers movie is perhaps one of the scariest robots on earth. The Construction Devastator is made up of 6 individual vehicles and works with both voice and motion activation sensors. Your little ones will love recreating their favorite Transformers scenes.

Bananagrams

Bananagrams are quickly becoming one of the most entertaining word games ever created. Designed in crossword-style fashion, the goal is to split up the tiles, create words, and use up all of your tiles before everyone else. Generally recommended for children ages 7 and older, this game is great for children just learning to spell as well.

Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden

Do you have a budding scientist on your holiday shopping list this year? If so, consider the Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden. Your child will receive butterfly larvae and butterfly food in the mail. After placing the larvae in the habitat, he’ll have the chance to watch his larvae evolve into caterpillars and then into butterflies. Once they’re grown, he can release them into the wild and start the process all over again.

Children between the ages of 5 and 7 tend to be imaginative and explorative. Cater to their whims with some exciting and at least partially educational games and toys. You’ll be glad you made the investment!
