The Bakugan game played by children has been popular for a few years now. The game is promoted by an animated TV show that features the Bakugan Battle Brawlers. It is very similar in concept to Pokemon. People control Bakugan and have them fight one another. The game played by children is actually somewhat educational so as a toy for kids is actually pretty good. It is aimed at children 7 years old and above. Perhaps 6 years old would be okay too. The reason for this age restriction is that there are small pieces that could easily be choked on by younger kids who still put things in their mouths. Also to play the game properly a degree of arithmetic ability is required. During battles children have to add numbers together.
If you are wondering where to buy cheap Bakugan then there are a range of places to compare prices. There are many different Bakugan toys to collect so it is a great merchandising scheme. To play the game however the minimum amount required are just three Bakugan balls, three gate cards and three ability cards. By buying a Bakugan Starter Pack you get all that is required for one player to play the game. Of course you will need someone else who has the same items to actually have a battle. The Bakugan Battle Pack contains enough cards and pieces for two players.
Once your child has started to play the game there are a load of other bits they may want to add to their collection including things like more core Bakugan, Bakugan traps, Bakugan Battle play mat, Bakugan shooters and so on. It is a game kids can get quite absorbed in. The educational aspects include learning about strategy and doing some elementary math. This makes the Bakugan Battle Brawlers a good game for children.
