New Monsuno Core Sets! Review & Give Away!




There is a new favorite toy in our house....Monsuno Core Sets!  Have you heard of these super fun toys?  Their slogan is "Monster Fun In Your Hands" and they are based on a popular Nicktoons TV show....
The Monsuno series is an epic boys action adventure where kids discover, command and battle creatures with destructive potential.  A race to harness the power of Monsuno ensues between a group of heroic kids and the evil forces focused on destroying the planet.  Built around powerful, action-driven animation, dynamic characters and a deeply woven original story mythology, Monsuno is anticipated to develop into a powerful force in the boys action arena for years to come.

My boys have not yet seen the television show but this did not stop them from lighting up when a box of Monsuno toys turned up on our doorstep.  The Jakks Pacific toy line  will be releasing more than 100 Monsuno figures for children aged 4+.  What I really enjoy about the Monsuno toy line is the various ways they can be played with.  There are the figures themselves, trading cards in which you can play a role playing game and accessories like battle arenas to expand play.  My boys (aged 5) are not yet ready for the gaming aspect of the toys but they will be very soon. What does this mean?  A toys with STAYING power and don't I just love that!  Here are the details on the  sets we were given to try out....

2 pack core: $14.99; Monsuno
These toys are currently flying off the shelves at all major retailers! Spin into action and transform into battle with the all-new Monsuno Core™ and Transforming Action Figures. Featuring hundreds of favorite characters from the Monsuno Animated TV Series, the toy line offers an amazing transformation reveal and controllable, fast-action battle play. Players simply load their Monsuno monsters into their cores and spin them into battle against another core; upon impact the Monsuno figures are launched from their cores ready for battle. The Monsuno Core Combat 2-Packs equip you with double the Monsuno action. Increase your collection or ‘Spin-Impact-Battle’ it out with friends! Each 2-pack comes with 2 collectible Monsunocores, 2 transforming action figures and 6 collector game cards. (SRP $14.99) Ages 4+. For more info www.jakks.com .

Now onto these fabulous toys in action.  Here is my crew tearing into them with excitement....


There is something very important I need to say here....my children tend to play with toys in bits and spurts.  15 minutes here.  10 minutes a little later.  They are busy!  These Monsuno toys keep them occupied for much longer stretches of time.  The first day we played it was more than an  hour straight.  This is a record for us!  What is the draw?  The fun figures which can be folded up, put in a core and spun around to "battle".  The figure who stays in the longest is the winner.  I have to say, this toy is fun for me too!  We spun those animals round and round over and over again and we giggled and laughed and oohed and ahhed in anticipation of who would win.

I had some worry that the kids would have trouble folding up the figures but hey had no issue and my almost 3 year old could often do it on her own as well.  I wanted to take some of my own action video of us playing but, quite frankly, I was too busy playing too so here is the video taken from the Monsuno website...



If you are looking for a sure hit toy, the Monsuno toys are the way to go. My children love them AND they are headed to a birthday party this week armed with Monsuno's as a gift (THE ultimate seal of approval when it comes to A&W). Find Monsuno toys at major retailers and stay up to date by following Jakks Pacific on Twitter and Facebook.

I am so excited to tell you that Jakks Pacific is giving one lucky RBM reader a 2 pack of Monsuno Core Action Figures!  Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter...
