Bakugan Battle Brawlers
Bakugan is this years Pokeman or Yu Gi Oh that most young boys seem to enjoy. Like Pokeman, you battle your opponent using a Bakugan figure and card. Below my 8 year old reviews Bakugan.
Bakugan are simply tranforming marbles that tranform when you put it on metal and the card contains metal. There are kinds of elements and to play you throw the Bakugan on the card and then they will pop out. You need only one card on the side that says "bakugan battle brawlers". You throw out the bakugan and you have the card of your bakugan. If you look at the left side it will show all the elements. You look at the Bakugan of the person your battling then look at left side of your card and the element of the person you're battling element will be on there next to it says the damage it does to the other bakugan. Some cards can be played to do special attacks or make your attacks more powerful. Each turn you can withdraw your bakugan or keep playing. The battle ends when you or the person you were battling with runs out of Bakugan.
That is how to battle with Bakugan. It will get simpler as you battle. This toy is great for kids eight to twelve.

Amazon is stocked with Bakugan toys. You might have an easier time finding Bakugan online. My last trip to Target and Walmart in search if Bakugan was fruitless. The sheleves were clear of all the larger Bakugan and only a few smaller figures were available.
