Holiday Gifts: Games and outdoor toys from YULu #ThinkChristmas

From games to outdoor toys, YULU has everything you need for a wish list. Check out these options for Christmas this year!  I shop early every year, to beat the crowds and get the items I want for my friends and family.   These are sure to be a hit this year, so make sure you are on the watch for YULU toys and games this year!

 Spy Code Hackathon
Your identity has been stolen by a group of villains and is saved inside a super-advanced console. You are in possession of the console and your Spy Code Squad has instruction to hack and retrieve the secret information. However, only one person can look at and work on the console at a time. That player can only hear the directions from the other players or advisors. Hackathon is a game that challenges players to work together, keep talking and start decoding the console. Players have a limited amount of time and there is no room for mistakes. What are you waiting for? Get hacking, quick!
With the success of the Spy Code games of 2017, YULU expands this spy line with the introduction of Hackathon. One player, the operator, is trapped in a virtual room trying to hack into a top secret government hard drive. The other players are the ‘Experts’ who must give the hacking instructions to break through the 8 different modules by deciphering the information found in the instruction manuals. But there is a catch: the experts can’t see the hard drive and the operator can’t see the manuals. So everyone will need to talk it out – fast.

This is fun and a great way to work together to solve problems. Using game cards and the console, you work to solve clues!

For ages 8+. Available August 2018. US: $29.99. CA: $44.99. US Retailers: Target Exclusive. CA Retailer: Toys R Us.

Cut the Wire
Put your skills to the test with Cut the Wire, new from YULU! A device is ticking and it’s about to go off! Players compete to see who cuts the right wire, defuses the device, and saves the day. Use secret clues for hints to help figure out how to avoid cutting the wrong wire and losing the game. It’s the ultimate race to see who can defuse or lose...before it’s too late!

 In this nerve-wracking family game, you  take turns using secret clues to figure out what wires to avoid while they try to cut the right wire, diffuse the device and save the day.  Kind of reminds me of the old operation game, you are on a time crunch to save the day!

For ages 6+. Available August 2018. US: $24.99. CA: $29.99. US Retailers: Target Exclusive. CA Retailers: Walmart Canada Exclusive.

Pacemaker Extreme 
Get ready to race the pace or face the shock with Pacemaker Extreme, new from YULU! In this adult party game, players try to outwit their opponents by thinking quick and keeping the pace. Players need to pay close attention to how many times the other players are tapping their paddles since that will set the pace of the pulse. Tap your paddle once and the pulse moves to the next player, tap twice to reverse the pulse and tap 3 times to skip the next player! Be careful – if you tap when it’s not your turn, you get shocked and you’re out!

This game is so much fun!   Even thought it states for adults (14+), my teen and tween loved it.  I think the age on it is due to the shock factor.  The faster it gets, the more challenging it gets, and you must keep up and follow the direction and the skipping.   It is a competitive game and fun for game night!

For ages 14+. Available August 2018. US: $24.99. Retailer: Target Exclusive.

Helix Power Swing
Pull it, swing it and fling it like a pro with the Helix Power Swing, new from YULU. Thanks to its unique “hyper spin,” the football-shaped Power Swing can launch over 350 feet! Take it to the max! Helix Power Swing is designed to help kids unleash their ultimate throwing power. PLUS, it features a unique rollback plastic string that helps generate maximum velocity and enables the ball to be thrown farther than ever! Defy new challenges like the Apollo Shot, Helix Ring Shot, Power Catch Challenge and others. Grab your friends and take on this newest Helix challenge!

My son had a similar style ball from another retailer that lost its sound and launch power.  This one did not disappoint and flew high!  Swing in a circle to wind up then release to launch this football up to 350 feet!  You don't have to worry about the wire either as it automatically roll back after it is released.  This is the perfect football shaped outdoor toy for under the tree this year. 

For ages 6+. Available September 2018. US: $9.99. CA: $14.99. US Retailers: Target. CA Retailers: Walmart, Indigo, Mastermind, Toys R Us.
