I receive the products free of charge... All I have to do is go to their website HERE and when there are survey's available, I just fill them out honestly. They use those surveys and figure out which products would be best for my family and I to try out. They send me an e-mail and suggest that I try this Campaign or that Campaign. If I'd like to try that particular product out, then I accept. Some of the times they'll send you the products in the mail, and other times they don't need to. For Example... I accepted their Campaign about Redbox Instant By Verizon (check out my blog post HERE). They didn't need to send me anything in the mail. I just went to their website through the link that BzzAgent sent me. This time, they sent me my product in the mail...
So, have you guys heard of Magic Jinn? Yeah, me neither. It is a relatively NEW toy by Hasbro. It is for ages 6+ and for only 1 player (although, my girls and I have done it together as a family) You think of any animal... Yes... ANY ANIMAL and then Magic Jinn asks you questions to try and guess which animal you are thinking of. You'll answer his questions with: Yes, No, I Don't Know, or It Depends. There are a few times that you'll need to say: Ok, Say It Again, and Go Back. I do have to say that it takes 3AAA Batteries that weren't included in the box.
I had no idea what it was or what it did. I didn't see any Magic Jinn's in my local stores, but I did Google it... Found a few stores online that sold it. (Wal-Mart apparently does... still haven't seen Magic Jinn in My local Wal-Mart!!) I decided that my girls (ages 6 and 3 1/2) would probably enjoy it, as well as myself. :) If not, then my 14 month old would probably get a kick out of a toy just talking!
The blue one, (which I've found is the only one that you can seem to purchase anywhere online) tries to guess which animal you are thinking of. After Googling images of Magic Jinn, I've noticed that there seem to be two other colors Purple (Food and Drinks) and Yellow (couldn't find what this one guesses)
Hasbro Toy Shop $19.99 each
Amazon $19.99 each
Toys R Us $19.99 each
Kmart $21.99 each
Target $19.99 each
I am sure that they are available at several other stores; however, these are just the more popular stores that I can think of.
He's not very big... I couldn't find a ruler (No idea why I couldn't find one... I have bought several in the past, and have kids that use them... Think I could find one when I needed it??? NOPE) So instead I used a sharpie... We have all used them, so why not. It's a great frame of reference I think.
My 6 year old tried this product. It could understand her, and after several attempts at guessing her animal (Giraffe) Magic Jinn guessed it. A few of the animals that it thought it was were animals that I had no idea of what the animals were. For example... a Dromedary.. HU?!?!?! I had to look it up online... It's a Camel. LOL So guess if you try and find an unknown animal, research it a bit, and see if Magic Jinn can think of it... Try it out. After learning what a Dromedary was, I wonder if it knows several animals. :)
