We were super excited to be chosen for a Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters debut party kit. The new show premiered Saturday, June 2 on The Hub TV network
Here’s the scoop about the show from the website:
Ray, a 14-year-old who lives with his mom and granddad, has been recruited by the Duel Masters to study Kaijudo: The Way of the Creature. They chose Ray for his natural talent as a creature tamer and duelist. Along with pals Allie and Gabe, Ray learns to work with the magical creatures … in their world. Each duel he fights yields new experience and allies in both worlds. The Veil, which has divided the two worlds for a thousand years, is crumbling. Hope lies with those who can master the art of Kaijudo.
Here’s what the kids thought:
The kids loved the show. They really liked the characters and the humor. The battles were exciting. They were glued to the show the entire time. The boys loved the creatures, while the girls seem to like the friends best and loved Allison. It has interesting creatures and some great characters. They are looking forward to watching future episodes.
This normally isn’t my type of show, but I did watch with the kids, and I have to admit I liked it. The show has some great messages about dealing with bullies and about doing what you need to do in order to overcome things that are in your way. The friends show loyalty to and support each other in tough situations. There are some excellent messages in the show for kids and it entertained them throughout. There are some very interesting characters and I have to admit I even laughed outloud – twice. We got a chance to watch the first three episodes and they get better and better as you get to know the characters. I plan on watching this show with the kids.
If your kids want to find out more, you can see about the heros, villains, and all about the show here: http://www.hubworld.com/kaijudo/shows/rise-of-the-duel-masters and you can view the show on the Hub.
Here are a couple of ideas if you would like to host your own Kaijudo party:
Rusalka’s Sea Blue Punch
-1/2 gallon blue punch drink
-1 liter carbonated lemon-lime soda
-1/2 pint pineapple sherbet
-6 ounces applie juice, frozen into ice cubes
1. Place punch and soda in punch bowl.
2. Scoop sherbet on top and add ice cubes.
3. Serve immediately.
Allie’s Garden Salad (my daughter’s favorite character)
– 8 to 10 cups salad greens
– 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
– 1 cup grated carrot
– 2 or 3 tomatoes, cut into wedges
– 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (we use Monteray Jack since my daughter doesn’t like cheddar)
– salad dressing of choice
1. In large serving bowl, toss together all ingredients (except salad dressing)
2. Just before serving lightly pour dressing over salad mixture and toss to coat.
Bob and Weave Relay (Sons’ Favorite creature from the show)
Tatsurion the Unchained gets his nickname when Ray instructs him to “bob and weave” during battle.
Two serving trays or lightweight books
1. Form two equal teams and have each team line up single file with about three feet between each player.
2. Give a player on each team the serving tray or book and have the balance it on the top of their head.
3. Players must weave in and out of their teammates while bobbing their head, without droping the tray or book.
4. Players who drop the item off their head must start over.
5. The first team whose members ALL successfully complete the obstacle course wins!
Aqua Seneschal’s Ice Duel
– one ice cube per team; same size
1. Form two equal teams and have each team stand in a line
2. Hand the first person in line an ice cube.
3. The first person holds and rubs the ice cube until their hands get too cold.
4. Then, they pass it to the next person and so on until the ice cube melts.
5. The team to melt their ice cube first wins!
You may want to make a hands only (no putting the ice cube in your mouth) rule to prevent choking and germs
If you and your kids have watched Kaijudo:Rise of the Duel Masters, we’d love to hear what you think of the show.
