Flea Circus & Super Magnetel games

One thing about our games: if you play with your kids, you’ll probably lose.

In Flea Circus, it takes split-second timing and coordination to make tiny magnetic fleas perform daring circus tricks. In Super Magnetel®, it takes a steady hand to aim and shoot the magnetic discs in any of ten different games. (Our third new game is Sprint. It’s the game that brings the excitement of the drag strip to the game board.) These are all games of skill, action and fun. That’s why they can keep youngsters busy for hours.
