As I mentioned in my April Smiles Blog Party post, I was chosen (yay!) to host a Gogo’s Crazy Bones Bonanza party by Child’s Play Party. Jake saw these little monster-like things on TV a month or so ago and has been bugging me for them since. Around the same time, I applied for the party, so I told him to just hang in there and see what happened. He was over-joyed to find out that we would be hosting.
I admit, I had no idea what they were until they actually arrived. The commercials gave me some idea, but I thought they were marble-like toys and wondered what the big appeal was. When they came, I read the book with Jake before the party to get a better idea, and they really are diverse little toys! Yes, you can play with them similar to marbles, but you can also do so much more! At the party, the kids played battle Gogo’s, bullseye Gogo’s and basket Gogo’s. After they tired of the more traditional party games, they just played with them on all of Jake’s other toys, using them as miniature action figures.
The sticker/rule book is awesome. Jake loves adding the stickers and seeing exactly which Gogo’s he’s collected so far. Some of the numbers have two spots next to them, one for the regular Gogo and one for the rare type. We haven’t found any rare ones yet, but we’re working on it. The Series 1 Gogos has 80 regular characters, plus 15 rare and 5 super rare ones. Each character has its own name and special power, which is indicated on the sticker that comes with it.
Everyone had a great time playing with Gogo’s Crazy Bones. I would definitely recommend them to children over age 4. They are a major choking hazard for young children though, so keep away from curious toddlers and babies. Visit Gogo’s Crazy Bones online to learn more.
