Move over marbles…
Marbles have been around for 5,000 years, but the brand new DaGeDar from toy maker Cepia will be giving the ancient play toys a totally new spin. These are supercharged ball bearings which feel cool to touch. DaGeDar is all about speed, skill and collectability. Each ball has a different character and each design has its own collector number so kids can register them online. Racing the DaGeDar balls on their tracks requires agility and finesse. Once placed on their tracks, players have to use the right amount of force – and the first one to the end of the track wins. Players can also spin the balls and try to knock over the competition. The balls are packed two to a pack at under $5 so kids can collect and trade them. Really fun and addictive!
Cute & quirky….
