Let the Battle begin with Battroborg

Toy Review

Undoubtedly these new Motion Controlled Battling Robots are set to become summer's hottest toy - coveted by everyone in the family.

A heroic battle awaits this September, with the launch of TOMY’s latest high performance toy

Battroborg are advanced, motion controlled battling robots.  My boys had awesome fun (so did my hubby and I). They appeal to kids big and small.

Now, I am quite happy for my boys to engage in physical combat fueled by their own fists ...albeit without any Blood & bruises blows or touching each other .

The Battroborg robots are motion equipped with a wireless remote that puts you in control of the action.

{Technically I am challenged when it comes to making videos - but check out the dance moves ...)
Launch your Battroborg in battle boot camp to master the art of rivalry, taking on training drones or switch into auto drone mode where you can battle against a self-activated Battroborg for up to two minutes. In addition to the one-on-one gauntlet battle, Battroborg’s advanced radio technology allows up to 20 robots to fight it out at the one time in a Battle Royal.

Battroborg Battle Arena comes with two 10cm robots, two nunchaku controllers, battle arena and training drones (RRP $99.95) or alternatively add to the Battroborg family and collect all 8 robots with single player packs (RRP$49.95).

If the kids are up for an extra challenge ? Battroborg’s Trainer app for iPhone and Android is also available for free download, allowing serious competitors to get in a few extra training hours on the go.

Send your robots to the app ‘Boot Camp’ where Borg trainers can learns strategic battle tips and tricks within a simulated arena and take on an opponent once prepared.

Battroborg is available at Toys R’ Us from September 2013, and in Big W, Target, Myer, Toyworld  from October 2013.
