Want to challenge friends or family to a normal game of soccer? No problem! Just remove the sensor and screw the bung into the ball. A million sporty possibilities!

Watch out! Incoming!
Sometimes it’s good to have a physical, energy-burning activity that kids can do indoors. Dodgetag is a fantastic choice, as the balls are soft and the rules are simple. Players throw the balls at their opponents’ velcro vests, aiming for the circular target. If the ball doesn’t stick to the vest, it’s all still to play for. Perfect for rainy days. Let the Dodgetag battle begin!

Looking to unwind after a long day of homeschooling? How about a game of Magno Darts? This safer version of the traditional game features magnetic darts — no sharp, pointy ends in sight! The dartboard can be mounted to a wall or simply propped up on a chair, so you can play this game anywhere in the house. Bullseye!
