We were invited by the Hot Wheels Epic Race organizers to join Boom Co’s Blast Better Summer Explosion at Mall Of Asia last April 23. I was encouraged to attend this event because I know this will be something new and exciting for my little boy.
My son doesn’t own a toy gun except for the 10-peso water gun we play with during bath time. So when the organizers described the product they were launching, I knew my son would be delighted to play with a more complex toy gun weapon!
I was also excited to see how my little boy would behave and react playing with a group of boys. We go out on playdates with our homeschooling friends but we haven’t tried team games. This “action-packed battle” would be a new experience for Rio.
Let the games begin!
We arrived at the Music Hall just as the games were about to start. Rio was the last player to complete the blue team. One of the short and basic Boom Co guns was issued to him. As expected, it took several minutes for our little boy to familiarize himself with the toy gun. During the actual battle, Rio had some successful shots but these were not enough to reach the opponent’s base. He was eliminated and had to stay in the home base with one of his teammates.
Fortunately, the other members of the blue team were more daring to attack the opponent’s home base. In the end, the blue team won and advanced to the final round. The boys were so happy and excited to play again in the next round.
Kita-kita tayo sa finals!
The organizers had to review the composition of the teams before the final round. They had to balance the members to make the game more fair and exciting. Rio became part of the red team and we were glad to give him some pointers before the game started. We explained the game’s rules and objectives and our Boom Co shooter survived the game without being eliminated. He also tried his best to reach the opponent’s home base.
Their team lost but we are sure Rio had a great time. He was so happy to receive a special gift from the organizers. He never let go of his new Boom Co gun and held it close to him even during our merienda.
Target shooting and homeschooling!
While waiting for the next team battle, we plan to use our Boom Co gun in our homeschooling lessons. We could review our lessons about numbers through target shooting! Rio will surely enjoy his math and target shooting lessons!
