Saw it on Regis and Kelly Oct 07, 2005
By Dad in the Northeast
"Dad 2 two wild lil ones"
While watching morning television I happened upon the Live with Regis and Kelly show about a week before my daughter's 5th birthday. It just so happened that it was the Top 10 Toys show - thank goodness for me because this child can go the rest of her life without ever receiving another toy and still have a different toy to play with each and every day - I kid you not!!! In any event, we purchased this toy and much to my delight it arrived by the UPS truck the morning of her birthday - yeah!!! We took it out of the box and had it set up and working within 15 minutes (we are definately not a mechanically inclined family - very ver easy set up). We have played all the games, but our favorite is balloon juggle - I think the adults like it better than the kids!!! There is a camera that sits on top of your television or on a shelf near by - you may have to do some tweaking until it is the proper height to see your child's head and body, and then play away. Your child appears on the television screen, and if that is not the cool part, balloons start falling all around and they need to "pop" them. Entertained my 2 children for a couple of hours and is the first game that is pulled out when friends arrive. I would definately recommend this toy. It helps a child build motor skills (hitting the moles in Whac-a-Mole, popping the balloons) and is a fun indoor activity. Definately a favorite in our house.

An excellent toy provided you understand what it is! Dec 06, 2006
By David A. Bayliss
I believe this is an excellent toy; however it does have a high 'cost of ownership' and you need to understand what you are commiting too or you will be sorely disappointed.
Firstly this has one brilliant innovative feature as a game machine. It puts the player INTO the video game via a camera that is installed on the box. However to get a camera that is cheap enough for the price point they had to sacrifice quality; and what they sacrificed was the ability to operate in low light. Here are a few examples of what does an doesn't work to help you measure if it will work for you:
a) If the background that the camera will be be pointing at (ie what you see when you stand at the TV and face AWAY) is WHITE or another light solid color then it works. If the background is dark or very busy then the camera does not work.
b) The place where we stand to play is 10ft away from a west facing french window; the camera works from dawn to dusk with the blinds pulled back. Drawing the blinds or trying to use the system after dark does not work.
c) The system can work under intense flourescent light and -might- work in a heavily lit room; but it will not work under normal 'nighttime' lighting.
The next thing to note is that there are not many games available. We have the four in the original box and the add on 'whac a mole' and 'dodgeball'. I'll comment on each of the four included games as the quality of each effects the value of the product:
a) Baloon juggle - This game works very well with the camera. Essentially the player has to dance around the floor catching imaginary baloons. The game can be made easier or harder by standing nearer or further from the camera. At 15ft away the game was hard enough to seriously tire an adult. At 8ft it can amuse a 5year old and 3 year old for hours.
b) Number fishing - This is an educational game that requires the player to perform 1 digit arithmetic and then catch the correctly numbered bubble. The precise nature of the difficultly narrows the appeal to a 1-2 year age band (generally 6-7)
c) Penguin maze - The idea here is very cool. It is similar to a packman game except it is the player that is running rather than pressing a joystick. However the controls are sufficently hard to use (involving waving your hands over parts of the screen) that adults have difficultly getting beyond the first level.
d) Breakout - This is the classic 'kill the bricks with the ball' game played in arcades, except you have dive around to bounce the ball back. Like the baloon juggle this is challenging for an adult standing a long way back and yet doable for young children up close.
In summary this is a relatively unique idea that beautifully bridges the gap between exercise and video games. However you have to have a room that can handle the lighting and you have to accept that you are paying $50 for two relatively simple games. (Although I am also going to write reviews on the other two games we have).

Some things look better on tv Nov 12, 2005
By Maria Navarra-ancona
I bought this game for my son after seeing it on Live with Regis and Kelly. It looked great on tv and I thought my son would like to have a game he could interacted with but he became bored 10 minutes after he used it. The graphic of the game are not very good. The room must be well lit for the image to appear on the tv. After being introduced to all the games my son walked away to play with another toy never to touch it again.

Not hours of fun, but still a neat toy Nov 13, 2005
By Amy G
I thought this game was a brilliant idea. My kids seemed to love it but only played it about 15 minutes before getting bored. The picture quality is pretty poor and you'll need ALOT of light in the room. Two of the games are difficult and for older children (over 8 years). Maybe thats why my kids (ages 4 and 6) got bored so quickly. I will definetly purchase additional games in hopes they continue using the game unit.
