GIFT IDEA – FUNDEX GAMES ELECTRONIC DREAM PHONE
About Fundex Games Electronic Dream Phone
Now a new generation of girls can enjoy Fundex Games’ Electronic Dream Phone™ and find out, “Who, who, who, has a crush on YOU!” The updated tween slumber party game introduces a state-of-the-art phone, a stylish new look, and cell phone standard features (such as text messaging) that tween girls have come to expect! Originally introduced in the early 90’s by Hasbro, the original Dream Phone was a staple in many teen households.
The fun begins with the ring of the phone as girls make calls to a dream team of 24 teen boys, hoping to find their secret admirer through a process of elimination. Using the hand-held phone, a girl will choose a boy’s picture card from her hand, and call his number. The selected boy, a friend of the “secret admirer”, will drop hints about where the girl’s admirer does NOT hang out, what he does NOT like to eat, and even what he would NOT be wearing. Players must pick up clues from the boys and search the game board to find out who the secret admirer is NOT in order to ultimately determine who he actually IS! When a girl thinks she has found the “dream guy,” she calls him up. If he says, “You’re right!” the player has found her true crush – at least until the start of a new game. The game changes each time it is played, with new clues and a different admirer to identify.
Fundex has updated the classic Dream Phone Game. Now it is an electronic cell phone complete with text messaging. What normal eight to fourteen year old girl doesn’t want one for her very own? Every young woman dreams of having a secret admirer so with 24 possibilities she will have a lot to think over. Here is where clues and deductive reasoning will help her figure out the identity of the young man who has the crush on her.
Play solo or against the competition. Surprise calls, call forwarding, hangups, jealousy, and bummer responses either slow things up or keep everything moving along. As information on clothing, sports, food likes, and favorite hangouts become known, guys get eliminated. Finally it is time to guess. Guess correctly and it’s a win; guess wrong and the game goes on.
My opinion: Can’t beat the $24.99 pricetag. If a major manufacturer had his name on this game, it would be the top tween girl pick of the 2009 holiday season. Dream Phone’s are being sold exclusively at all Justice Stores (formerly Limited, too!) for the holidays.
One winner will receive the Electronic Dream Phone.
