Hydroshield Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Now the winner of The Toy Box season 2 can come into your toy box at home thanks to Mattel. Hydroshield took top honors on the show because the kid judges had a blast playing with it. 

Hydroshield comes with two foam shields, one in blue and one in orange. Each one has a handle and a mesh pouch for holding an Aqua Ammo ball. There is one matching Aqua Ammo ball for each shield. These balls are made of a soft foam and will absorb water, so when you throw them at someone, that someone is bound to get splashed. Unless that someone is able to block the ball with their Hydroshield.

Is It Fun?

This is a toy that is going to get kids running around in the backyard and having all sorts of active fun this summer. The water aspect to it will really be enticing on a hot day. But you don't have to wait until summertime to play with it. The shields could also be used during a snowball fight in the winter.

Who It’s For

Hydroshield is for ages 5 and up. It will be fun for kids who like playing outdoors no matter the weather.

What To Be Aware Of

Hydroshield comes with two shields and two balls.
