TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
Torx is a new line of action games geared toward boys from Wild Planet. Each Torx game is designed to focus on aim, energy, strategy, and skill. One of the first games in this new line is Turbo Freeze Tag. It comes with one six-sided foam ball and six different-colored rubber wrist cuffs. The gameplay combines the classic games of freeze tag and dodge ball. Each player gets one of the wrist cuffs, then one player throws the ball into the air. When the ball lands, if the color facing up matches the color of your wrist cuff, run to grab the ball, while everyone else runs away. Once you've grabbed the ball, yell "Freeze!" and everyone has to stop where they are. Then throw the ball at another player. If the ball hits them and they don't catch it (Remember, they can't move.), then you get their wrist cuff. If they catch the ball, they get your wrist cuff. The first player to capture all the wrist cuffs wins.
Why It’s Fun
This game offers classic, active gameplay that gets kids moving and having fun. It has a great combination of luck, skill, and competition that will appeal to kids of a variety of ages.
Who It’s For
Torx Turbo Freeze Tag is for ages 8 and up. This is great classic fun that boys and girls—and even adults—will enjoy. One of the nice things about this game is that kids of different ages will be able to play together.
What to Be Aware of
Even though the ball is made of soft foam, don't aim it at people's faces.
