Swinx $150 Game Console Review And Giveaway

I always try to find toys and games that keep my children active. I don't want them to be those kids that sit in front of the television all day.



I was thrilled when I heard about the Swinx Game Console. As the website states, Swinx is the first screen-free games console that can play games, talk, listen and keep you entertained for hours. The portable entertainment pod engages kids in physical, creative and educational play (including musical chairs, tag and relay ) by using its voice in combination with sounds and colors. Designed for ages four and above, Swinxs talks and explains games, recognizes players and even referees.

We were sent a Swinx to try out.


As soon as I read about Swinx, I knew it would be a hit with my family. It is portable and can be played both inside and out. We go to the beach a lot and this will be a great game to play when they aren't swimming.

We took it out as soon as it arrived. I was immediately impressed with how user friendly it is. I would normally have to sit there for 30 minutes and read instructions before we play. Not with Swinx! I simply plugged it in and selected English as our language. It tells you exactly what to do as you go. Here is Evan, my sister, and my dad listening to Swinx tell them what to do.

It includes 4 different color wristbands that Swinx uses to identify each player. You can purchase more wristbands separately so that up to 10 players can join in. There are 10 games that are already programed into the console and you can use the USB cord that is included to download more games.

Once you turn it on, Swinx will randomly choose a game to play, or you can choose one yourself. Each player swipes their wrist band over the console so Swinx knows who is playing. Our favorite game was charades. One player goes off and turns the volume down so no other players can hear. Swinx tells them what to act out and they go back to join the group. When someone guesses correctly, they swipe their wrist band over the console so Swinx knows who won.


We had a blast with Swinx. Evan's favorite game was the one similar to musical chairs. Music plays and you dance around the console. When the music stops, everyone runs to the console to swipe their wrist band. That was the easiest game for him to join in with.

We had players ranging in age from 2 to 46 and we all had a good time with it. Swinx gets the whole family involved. I think this would be the perfect game for children starting at about 5 years old. Visit Swinx to learn more about the game.
