Senario takes rubber band bracelets to the boys with its introduction of Battle Bands, a series of flexible, collectible, and tradable bands that double as game pieces. Boys ages 6 and older can collect hundreds of different bands in various shapes including dragons, sharks, and monsters, each including a matching trading card.

Boys battle their bands against each other on the battle mat gaming piece. Each player takes turns launching their bands at the battle mat. The winner of each battle is based on where the bands land, as well as the band’s individual “strength,” which gives it a particular advantage.

Battle Bands packs include elastic Battle Bands, Warrior Cards, and a Battle Mat for game play. With several colors and shapes, each band represents a different level and “power,” making it a game that balances familiarity with strategy.

Available for purchase in three different sets, Battle Bands will hit retail stores in the third quarter of 2010. Starter Packs (MSRP $6.99) include seven Battle Bands, seven Warrior Cards, and one Battle Mat. Booster Packs (MSRP $3.99) include five Battle Bands and five Warrior Cards. Rumble Packs (MSRP $9.99) include 15 Battle Bands, 15 cards, and one deluxe Battle Board. To learn more about Battle Bands, visit
