U.B. Funkeys is a new toy made by Mattel my son got one for his Birthday and I have to admit at first I was a bit skeptical with the toy. It only took about 5 minutes to install and was very easy to set up for each player. There not very expensive either.
You need a personal computer and you can play it online or offline.
You start off with a Starter pack which comes with one big U.B. Funkey hub which plugs into your USB drive. Then it comes with two small characters that you place one at a time on the hub. You can also purchase other characters for a very cheap price. Each character unlocks a new portal in the U.B. Funkeys world. Once in the U.B. Funkeys world which is called Terrapinia you can play games and earn money to buy items to decorate your house referred to "your crib". This mom gives this new toy two thumbs up! This is a great toy for all ages. My six and eight year old sons love it, but so does my two year old daughter. And even mom enjoys playing.
