Spin Master Redakai Review/Giveaway

I was never much into trading cards when I was younger but, my hubby was into them a lot. He was really into the Magic Cards. I mean when I was younger I didn't give trading cards a second thought, but once I married my hubby he got me to play Magic Cards, and well my whole idea on trading cards took a huge change. I mean the idea of collecting cards is one thing but when you can trade them and there is a really cool game to go along with the trading cards it is completely worth it. I was sent a Redakai X-Reader Starter Pack by Spin Master to review and it has taken trading cards to the next level. Redakai offers 3-D graphics and animated effects which is totally different then just playing with trading cards. Plus, Redakai was named #1 toy to watch in 2011.


About the company and the product: A you ready for the next big thing in collectible gaming.? This past summer, Spin Master introduced Redakai, a ground-breaking innovation in gaming, with the support of a full entertainment franchise that takes trading cards to the next level. Redakai features fresh new strategic game play and amazing Blast3D technology. If you thing you can achieve the ultimate level of Kairu mastery and become a Redakai then try this out.
This is a new stack to battle gaming advancement which automatically tracks your progress and allows you to see the damaging effects of your attacks. So, this makes it where you don't have to use dice or a piece of paper. So, basically the cards do all the work for you and all you have to do is have fun and make sure you lay the right card down. I really love how they have made the video concept into the trading cards. Because, as you play your health can be restored. Which is actually similar to playing video games.

Redakai is great for younger ones since there is less reading then most trading cards. As they get older they are able to play the game in a different way for the more advanced players or readers.
Plus, with the new television series on Cartoon Network at 9:30am E/P, this allows your kids to also be more familiar with the characters and the game.

Redakai offers a really nice selection of products for those that are really into trading cards, and the next level. They offer Power Packs, Starter Packs, Structure Decks, Championship Tin, Kairu Tin, Action Figures, Deluxe Figures, and also the Microglyph Animation Unit. All the prices vary depending on what you purchase from $5.99-$29.99. Great prices for the upcoming holidays plus these are great for kids ages 6+.
I was sent the Redakai X-Reader Starter Pack with 22 Blast 3D cards, everything you need to have a fun battle. I knew right away that this would be a hit in our home with my little boy and plus with his daddy playing with him. I made the men in my home very happy. Not only that but my little girl has played magic cards with us enough to be really excited about the Redakai Cards as well. It didn't take long for them to get into the package and want to start playing. My little boy is only 4 so daddy and him was on a team and Dominique my little girl who is 7 was at the perfect age to play against them. I would say these are more that these aren't the traditional trading cards due to the fact they are plastic. Plus, with the 3-D capabilities, they are truly a one of a kind trading cards.

These are most like the traditional Japanese animation. So, if your little ones are into Pokemon then I am sure your kids will love these. My little girl has so many Pokemon cards that these was right there for her. Plus, it is pretty cool to watch when you lay down a clean plastic card and see the character change due to the damage they are receiving. 

This game was great for my little 4 year with the help of hubby, but my daughter whom is 7 was able to play by herself. This is a fun and fast game great for the younger crowd. But, I do feel that this is better for 9+ unless your kid is really good at playing games and reading, your kid would be fine. 


If you are looking for holiday ideas and stocking stuffers these would be great for those little ones that are really into trading cards. 

Where to purchase: You can go to Amazon and order plus there are several retailers that carry these products.
