What It Is
A cross between a yo-yo and juggling, Astrojax MX is a game that's all about action, rhythm, and your own personal style. Three balls with special metal weights inside are connected with a string, allowing kids to perform amazing tricks from the basic vertical orbit to more advanced juggling tricks. Videos of the tricks can be seen at www.ap-club.net. And, of course, kids can create their own tricks as they become more comfortable playing with their Astrojax MX.
With Astrojax MX's modular system, kids can also create their own combinations of balls and colors. There are two different Astrojax MX versions available, Pop and Sport, and each is available in four different color combinations. All parts are compatible, so just switch out parts and click the pieces back together.
Is It Fun?
Kids and adults who like playing with yo-yos but are looking for a new challenge will like the Astrojax MX. This toy works your hand/eye coordination as you swing the three balls to perform different tricks. There is a learning curve, and it will take some practice and patience to advance from the beginner tricks to more advanced tricks. But learning how to do the tricks is part of the fun and play.
