I’ll just apologize in advance

If you have a small boy in your house, you doubtless already know the joy of certain small plastic and metal magnetic creature… ball… things. I find my son’s Bakugan stuck to the lamps, littering the kitchen counters, and all over the floor. And he wants to tell me about them, endlessly. Their names. Their hit points. Their special spells. It’s… fascinating, really.


Anyway, remember when Bakugan were impossible to find, around Christmastime? Although they’re easier to locate, now, the prices haven’t exactly been bargains. Until now! Through May 4th, 2009, Amazon is offering the Bakugan booster pack for just $2.99 and the Bakugan Starter Pack for just $6.99. Free shipping eligible, too. (Having a Bakugan birthday party? Party favors!)

But if this gets your kid started with Bakugan, well, I apologize for bringing it up. It’s just that misery loves company….


  1. My son is obsessed with the cartoon, but we haven’t shelled out for any of the toys yet. So, thanks?

  2. Well, I guess I’ll be plunking some cash down there later. I have not one, but two bakugan fanatics in my house. Thanks… I think. 😀

  3. We moved right from Pokemon cards into Bakugan balls. My son LOVES these things. And how a kid can remember all the names of assorted Pokemon and Bakugan and NOT remember where he took his shoes off is beyond me.

  4. Can you say stock up on boy birthday presents?! Check!

    Thanks for the link.

  5. I totally stocked up on birthday presents! My boys just told me yesterday how much they wanted these….whatever they are.. Thanks!

  6. oooh! perfect! my son loves Bakugans. maybe I can bribe him into good behavior with these!

  7. OK, on a similar subject. Where in the heck can you get CHEAP pokemon cards? A friend gave BugMan a whole pile of old used Pokemon cards and he LOVES them. I refuse to pay $5 for a pack of new cards when he is just going to scatter them to the wind. I’ve tried ebay but, they seem to only have “collectors” and the prices are crazy. I’d just like a nice big stack of used cards he can play with. Any ideas??

  8. Bakugan are the bane of my existence.

    Beth: try Craigslist, I picked up a bunch of Pokemon (over 200 cards total) for about $20 mailed to my house.

  9. Aack, you should apologize. I’ve made vague hints about letting them get these things someday, after we’ve completely organized the playroom and purged all the other toys, which will never happen. And now this, I’m very very tempted.

    For pokemon, i have had luck with eBay, craigslist is a great idea, and if you have a fleamarket nearby that’s a great place. The really cheap ones are usually fake though, which of course my son had to tell me.
