These guys are kinda bazaar! My kids received these for christmas from their auntie. I hadn't really heard of them until the kids recieved them.
You have to purchase the starter kit which is about $30 at target, and you can find a pink starter kit at the Limited too! Also, the same price. But once you have prurchased these then you hook them up to your computer through an USB cord very simple and plan forward. Once you do this your kids can start exploring Terrapinia the home of the UB fubnkeys. There are some weird characters but I think the weirder they are the more the kids like them. You start by creating a player and giving it a name. Then you can set up your own crib but you have to earn points through the game in order to buy the furniture and what not that they need for their crib. There are sound options to choose from, coins that they can collect. It is really your typical onlne gaming toy.
Like I said both of my kids received this for christmas and my daughter is 12 years old and then my son is 11 years old. I think that it must be a boy thing because I think my son likes playing it better than my daughter does.
All together I think that this is just another game that the kids can get and then you just keep spending more on it because in order to discover new worlds you have to purchase additonal funkey guys which are about $5 a piece which isn't all that bad but there is alot of them.
Overall I think that this is ok for the money and it's nothing special as far as the game itself goes unless we have yet to come across sme amazing thing or new world. Just for thought the starter kit comes with 2 funkeys and my kids recieved an additional one with theirs so they have 3 guys al together now.
I hope this review helps all you parents out there!
