Since my kids are sort of spread out in age (14, 10 & 5), sometimes the youngest wants to do things his older brother (14) gets to do but just can’t. For instance, when we went to my grandparents a couple months ago, my oldest son had a GREAT time playing darts with my 91 year old Grandpa (I mean, how adorable is that visual?). Ryan wanted to play so badly but the thought of him, throwing a real dart…well, let’s just say I wasn’t comfortable with that!
So, when we were given the chance to review Doink-it™ Darts from Marky Sparky Toys, I knew it would be something Ryan would really love. I decided to give them to him for his birthday and funny enough, we actually saw the Doink-it™ Darts in a specialty store not long before that and he fell in love with them. When we received the box from Marky Sparky Toys, I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were located not too far from us in San Diego County. I am always thrilled to help out a local company!
Ryan’s 5th birthday came and he quickly opened up the Doink-it™ Darts. He was so excited and immediately realized they were the same darts he had played with at the toy store the week before. Before he even saw what else was in the rest of the gift bag, he started opening up the box to the Doink-it™ Darts because he wanted to play with them again!
What makes the Doink-it™ Darts so cool, is that they are safe…no sharp points like a regular dart set. Kids ages 3 & up can enjoy playing darts and it’s still fun for adults to play too! The goal in making the darts was to make the best playing magnetic dart set on the planet. Each of the darts uses N-35 Neodymium rare earth magnets™, which are the strongest type of permanent magnet currently made. The ends of the darts are made with space age Doinkit™ material, making the dart lightweight, durable and keeps the dart flying straight, to make the game more fun and accurate!
Marky Sparky Toys makes a lot of other fun toys as well. Their award winning Fauxbow lets you shoot a bow and arrow without having to worry about hurting anyone, the California Chariot™ is like riding a bike & 2 skateboards all at once (or the Skoooch™ for ages 3-6) and award winning Blast Pad®, which is a missile launch system (and Blast Pad® Jr. for kids 5 & up)
