5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun and good value 18 May 2009
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When my 10 year old son got this for Christmas, he loved it and wouldn't go to bed in case a beast came when he was asleep. Also he would jump out of bed in a trice if a beast appeared. The graphics are pretty basic, but that doesn't seem to spoil the fun. There are always some elusive beasts you haven't caught yet, and you can compare notes with your pals. This toy has been dropped a lot and suffered no damage. It is great fun and good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun running around looking for Invisble Beast. 7 April 2010
By I. Mcintosh VINE VOICE
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My little boy loved this. As son as he opened it we went running round the house looking for all sorts of invisible beasts. The Catcha Beast lets off a beep when it senses and there are over a 100 Beasts to collect .. all around your house ! Plus once you catch your beasts you can trade them with other kids who have a Catch Beast too. Greta fun for 5 - 10yr olds. Can't beat a good imagination toy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Scannerz remake. Nice idea, so-so execution. 24 Jun 2009
By Frank
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This product is basically a re-launch of the (ingenious) Scannerz concept where you had to collect monsters that were "hiding" in bar-codes like tho ones you find on cereal boxes etc. Scannerz was totally new & fun to play.

Catcha Beast dumps the barcode reader and uses a magnetic field sensor instead (yes, you can confuse this thingy with a strong magnet). The result is a cool concept. In theory. The gameplay is over-complicated and the handset poorly executed: Buttons with 0 funktion = FAKE buttons, a reset switch that doesn't reset the unit and a moody on/off switch... lame.

Mine stopped working after one evening of "play" ... I won't even bother trying to return it: I'll salvage the sensors and display and dump the rest...
