I recently received a set of "Mighty Beanz" from Spinmaster to review. Spinmaster has several products you may recognize, such as Aquadoodle, Flick Trix, Liv Dolls, How to Train Your Dragon toys, and even Yo Gabba Gabba for the little ones. Right now, "Mighty Beanz" are back and ready for more action.
Mighty Beanz are small, weighted "bean" characters that can be played with (instructions for different games are included in packages) and even collected. Each bean belongs to a "Bean Team" and each team has a "rarity level". They can be common, rare, or ultra-rare. Some of the teams themes are zoo, prehistoric, fast-food, sport, and many more (20 different teams in all). Right now, the hunt is on for the ultra-rare "Moose" bean!Mighty beans are very reasonably priced at SRP of $4.99 for a 6-pack. You can even buy a collectors case and a flip track for them! They are best for children over the age of 5 because they are pretty small (about an inch tall, I think).
The kids in our family are too young to play with these, so I had to review these myself. Some of the games seemed a little complicated for the younger kids playing with these, but they did have racing games that I think all of the ages would enjoy, especially with the flick track. Some of the bean characters were a little too gross for my taste (the sick beans especially), but they mostly just looked a little odd. I think they would be something that boys ages 7-10 would probably enjoy.
Spinmaster has offered one lucky ready a 6 pack of Mighty Beanz!
