Shredz - Review and Giveaway

Shredz is the new line of snow-ready action figures that actually ride through winter terrain.  From Swimways' COOP brand, Shredz inspire kids' imaginations during snow-time play as they glide their snowboarder action figures through the snow and perform awesome tricks.  With the Shredz Track Maker, kids can carve out jumps and ramps to design ultimate snow parks for their Shredz figures, and then launch them off the Jump ramp to see their boarder soar into the air and perform sweet aerial tricks.  Each Shredz figure comes with an ID card that indicates which mountain they hail from, and there are seven characters to collect in all.



In Illinois, the weather is unpredictable.  We can have spring weather one day and blizzard conditions the next.  Surprisingly enough, we haven't had a lot of snow yet this year.  There was one day when snow covered the ground and that's when Logan and Adam took their Shredz outside for play.  They had fun playing with the snowboarders and trick sets, although the whole experience would have been elevated if there had been more snow. 

The action figures and sets are geared towards outside play in the snow, but Logan and Adam have also played with them indoors.  Rather than filling the bottom of the Shredz Track Maker with snow, they filled it with rocks and had the snowboarders battle it out on the kitchen floor.



Out of the seven snowboard action figures, the two my boys received were Brett and Brody.  According to the included ID cards, Brody is from Utah and is energized by massive gaps.  Brett hails from Colorado and his best trick is the Rodeo Flip.  Each action figure comes with a helmet and custom snowboard.  The arms of the figures are movable and the feet snap inside the snowboards so they stay attached during play. 


The Shredz Track Maker is a tool used for constructing smooth trails and gravity-defying tricks for Shredz snowboarder action figures.  Kids use the scoop to carve mountains and create courses.  With the Shredz Jump, kids can create awesome aerial tricks for their Shredz snowboarder using the Jump alone or using it to create sculpted snow jumps.  With the Jump's textured finish, the snowboarders are sure to get wicked air time. 

As I mentioned earlier, there hasn't been much snow on the ground lately so the boys didn't get the full experience of Shredz.  With that said, they still spent several minutes outdoors playing with the action figures and trick sets.  They competed against each other to see which snowboarder could get the most air time and which one could come up with the best tricks.  Logan and Adam are excited for the next big snow so they can take Shredz back outside and get the full effect by creating deep snow courses. 

I've created a couple of short videos of each boy playing with the Shredz figures and sets.
