EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The PJ Masks Bowlercade from Jakks Pacific is a PJ Masks-themed electronic bowling set with fun sound effects. The set comes with a red, plastic ball. A plastic mat featuring the three PJ Masks superheroes and other fun graphics rolls out for kids to roll the ball down. To get started, turn the switch on and you'll hear a snippet from the recognizable PJ Masks theme song. This also activates the sound effects that play during the game. The blue lever lowers and resets the six pins. Each colorful pin features a PJ Mask character - superheroes Gecko, Catboy, Owlette, and villains Romeo, Luna Girl, and Night Ninja. Like traditional bowling, kids roll the bowl down the alley in an attempt to knock down the pins. The pins are knocked up in this version. The set features an automatic ball return.

Is It Fun?

PJ Masks fans will enjoy seeing their favorite characters  featured on this set while engaging in classic bowling fun. The set features an automatic ball return thanks to gravity so kids do not have to retrieve the ball each time. The PJ Masks theme song plays when you turn the toy on, and realistic bowling sound effects play consistently, adding to the fun of the game.

Who It’s For

The PJ Masks Bowlercade is for kids ages 4 years old and up. It would be fun for a PJ Masks fan. 

What To Be Aware Of

Some assembly is required but we found it easy to do in just a few minutes. Two AA batteries are required but not included. The set comes with a red, plastic ball. A plastic mat featuring rolls out for kids to roll the ball down. The mat does not seem very durable so be careful when handling. To get started, turn the switch on. The blue lever lowers, and resets the pins.  The automatic ball return did not always work but it worked enough that we didn't find it too frustrating. We did find that often times when you hit one pin, some or all the pins go up but we don't think kids will mind.
