Funkeys are set to be the new craze to sweep the nation. Funkeys are collectable figurines that plug into your computer via USB and unlock a world of games, fun and excitment.
In this review I will cover such subjects as:
Ease of use
As most parents know packaging is a major part in buying something- it attracts you to a product or pushes you away. Funkeys are encased in a plastic 'box' which is unaccessable without the use of scissors which as many people know is a pain. The colours are bold and alluring while the character also adds extra temptation to the product. Other aspects such as no information about that specific Funkey lets the packaging down. If a child asks someone to buy him Xener, there is no information such as a name on the front.
The most important part in a game is the fun factor and durability. Funkeys is extremely fun, its a new style of toy which opens the possibility to a new market. Children can share the game with there siblings or all own seperate accounts. This game never gets boring as you can consantly unlock new worlds and quests. There is no end to the world of Funkeys as new characters can be bought to add to the game.
Ease of use:
Funkeys are very easy to use and there is not much need for a manual. Setting up Funkeys is fairly easy- CD, install, plug and play. Although with my Funkeys a patch was needed to install the Mega Funkey. Children can easily set the game up on there own but it is best to have parental supervision. Funkeys are easy to control and to move a simple click is needed and not a whole manner of keys. Funkeys have fairly good graphics but there is alot more potential. Worlds are very colourful and cartoonish but it could reach alot further.
Funkeys are fairly good priced for the contents you receive and the 'ever lasting' (dont hold me to that) fun. Starter packs can range from £15-25 depending on the funkeys you receive and the single packs range from £2.50-7.50.
In my opinion Funkeys will be a massive hit in the UK and America. They have the opportunity to expand the product line and the ability to keep kids entertained for an increased length of time. Funkeys are... guess what... very fun to play with and have an everlasting WOW factor. They are very easy to use and set up but they also are low in the price range which might bring a smile to parents faces. There is only one bad point, in my opinion, about Funkeys- the packaging. This still isn't very big but it was an annoyance.
