– Hi. – We’re Rainy Day Dreamers. – And we’re gonna be
trying out a game today, called Sick Bricks, ever heard of that? It’s a brand new game, and
they say once you try it, you’ll get sucked in. ♫ Rainy Day Dreamers ♫ Rainy Day Dreamers ♫ The nice people at Spin
Master Toys sent us some of these Sick Brick blind bags to try out. You actually get an app on your phone. You buy these, they’re about
two and a half dollars a piece, and you can beam the character into the phone to play in the game. Have you two ever heard of a Vlog hop? – [Ximena] No.
– [Roxanna] No. – Well, it’s where you actually
collect pieces of a puzzle, sort of like a scavenger hunt, and in the end you end
up with all the pieces, and something good can happen. So, we’re actually participating in that. – Yay! – [Ximena] Yay!
– [Parris] Congratulations. Yes, so we’re in a Vlog Hop
with a total of 10 channels. – Yay. And what people need to do
is, they need to watch all of the videos to collect the key words. Make a note of that, and when
you have all the keywords, you’ll have a chance to win
some Sick Bricks of your own. Down below this video, we’ll put all the information
you need to participate in this Vlog Hop and have a chance to win some of these on Sunday. Should we take a look at them ourselves? – [Ximena] Yes.
– [Roxanna] Yes. – Let’s get opening them and see. Now, they’re like blind bags, except there’s a window in the back, and if you put the little
character up there, you can sorta see what it is. So you can either do it as a
blind bag and be surprised, or if you really want a particular one, you can go in the store and
pop them off in the corner and take a look at ’em, I guess. – Can I have some help? – Sure. Why don’t you go
ahead and take that one. See what’s in there. Ready, let’s take a look. One, two, three. So, does this come apart? It looks like it’s built. Oh, I either broke it or it comes apart. I guess it comes apart. – I think it’s used to
take the head apart, ’cause then this part, it shows like the mixtures,
– [Parris] Oh yeah, they come apart too.
– [Ximena] of the different– – So it’s sorta like a rebuildable
character then, isn’t it? You can, like what if I
take the head off this one? So, that leaves the little
brick with a little body, with an arm with an axe on it, and we take the head off yours, which has a some kind of thingy. And we just created something brand new. Here you have a close-up of some of the characters that you can take apart. And you can put different heads. Now, see the body comes with an arm, with I guess a weapon and then the base. So you can switch these together and create some new things, and then beam those into your game. Here’s the paper inset that comes with it, with the advertisement and
some of the other characters. I’ve heard that when they
have them all out for people to buy, there will be 70
different characters you can get. – [Roxanna] Wow.
– [Ximena] Wow. – So you were reading the
names of these characters, and you think they’re actually based on real characters, heroes,
monsters, that sort of thing? – Yes. – OK, I have one that looks
kind of like the mummy. And you’ve got a
werewolf, holding a steak. – That’s not eaten yet. – Right, what’s the other one, a ninja? – Yeah. – And you’ve got– – [Roxanna] A zombie.
– [Parris] A zombie. – And I have here, Tiberius Warpspeed, which is a Star Trek trivia. What was Captain James
T. Kirk’s middle name? What did “T” stand for? Tiberius. Didn’t know that? – No. – Learned something new about Star Trek. Here is the app, we’ve
downloaded it onto an iPhone 4s. It still has the small screen. Might be more fun if
you have a bigger iPhone or if you have an iPad, a big tablet. So they will tell you
the story of Sick City and what’s happened there. What’s the name of the bad guy in this? Do you remember? – [Roxanna] Overlord Omega or something? – [Parris] Omega, I think
that might be him right there. OK, we are in the game. Go ahead here. We’ve seen just a tiny bit
about moving the person around. – [Ximena] Just tap to
where you want to go. I think you want to collect the bricks. – [Parris] OK. – [Ximena] “Take all the
bricks you can, hehehe.” – [Parris] This is at
the start of the game, you get little informational
screens that pop up. – [Ximena] “Hey goons, you’re not going,” oh yeah, I don’t need to read it. “Avoid the fire.” – [Parris] Oh, whoa! Did you lose us already? – [Ximena] No, no, it’s a thumbs up. – [Parris] So you’re going
through different areas, trying to complete the goal in each room, or each part of the city, maybe. Do you have to get to a certain point, before we can do some beaming? I wanna bring in Tiberius Warpspeed. – [Ximena] I think this
is like the training. – [Parris] Oh, OK. So, you’ve been playing this and you just got into a hideout, where you can swap out the characters? And these are characters that
were already in the game. Who was the one you just brought in? – Katie Kantmiss. – And who’s it supposed to be? – Katniss Everdeen. – What did she say when
she jumped into the game? – I volunteer. – OK, so we’re trying to
get to this energy thing, or power brick, that will
allow us to beam these in. Seems like we have to
play a little bit more before we can do that, is that right? K, Roxanna has played through the game, to where we get to the point
that we can beam things in. Roxanna, what does it
say that we can do here? – [Roxanna] “Any place
you see this button, “feel free to press it, “and then I’ll beam in a new hero. “Let’s give it a try.” – [Parris] OK, let’s see if we can beam in one of our first characters. – [Roxanna] Oh, yes. – [Parris] OK, we got our person ready. – [Roxanna] “Sick Brick in the real world, “line it up with the outline, “and I’ll do the rest.” – [Parris] OK, I have
not ended the game yet. I think it’s not going to
accept me as a character. Have you got one? Now, take a look at this outline. And we may have to put it on a table. I don’t know if it can do it up in the air. There, ooh, it found it. “Beam complete.” So it pulls it in to, ooh, it’s like it’s
recreating it, digitally. “New hero.” – [Voiceover] Silent
shadow, master of stealth. Ready. – [Parris] Is that the
one you’re playing with? – [Ximena] Mmhmm. – [Parris] Cool. Now, what happened to the
guy who was in there before? Are they working together, or you replaced one with the other? – [Ximena] Replaced one with the other. – [Parris] Alright. Ooh, there’s cars out there. – [Ximena] Well, this is a street. – [Parris] That’s true. – [Ximena] It’s supposed to be cleaning. – [Parris] Wow. – [Roxanna] I think you can be anywhere. – [Parris] And this is a collection of everyone you can play with. That first one is the
one we beamed in, right? – [Ximena] Uh huh.
– [Roxanna] Yup. – [Parris] So, let’s beam in another one. Now, he really should be able to beam in. – [Roxanna] (chuckles) – [Parris] That was pretty quick, once you know what you’re doing. – [Ximena] (giggles) – [Voiceover] Let’s go, kick butt, boldly. (laughter) – [Parris] Butt, boldly, with
the William Shatner accent, as he’s doing Captain Kirk. That’s funny. So, they’ve put some of the personality of the characters, too. I wonder what the mummy sounds like. And the werewolf. – [Voiceover] I don’t
believe in a no-win scenario. – [Parris] Oh, I don’t
believe in a no-win scenario. That was with the Kobayashi Maru. That’s how he was able to defeat it. That funny, all the little
things they include. – [Roxanna] Yeah. – [Parris] For grownups,
as well as the kids. I wanna hear what he says. – [Voiceover] (squeals) (laughter) – [Parris] So, they
each have a special way of attacking, right? – [Roxanna] Right. – [Parris] That’s interesting, too. – [Ximena] I just don’t
wanna get run over by a car. – [Parris] Oh, can that happen, too? Won’t let you go out
in the street, will it? – [Ximena] No, I don’t
think so, where there’s no– – [Parris] Can you get in the police car? – [Voiceover] I’m totally hanging my head out the window and drooling. – [Parris] (chuckes) That’s funny. – [Roxanna] (chuckles) – [Parris] Nice, I like this. Roxanna, what did you do here? – [Roxanna] I joined the head of a zombie with the body of a werewolf. – [Parris] That sounds good to me. Alright, Ximena, see if
that thing will beam in. Well, oh, what? – [Roxanna] (gasps) It got it. – [Parris] It understood
what was going on, wow. – [Roxanna] Oh my gosh. – [Parris] “New combo.” Wonder what it’s gonna say. – [Voiceover] (growls) – [Ximena] (laughs) – [Parris] The zombie head
with the werewolf body, but here in the game, it
looks like a werewolf head with ears on top. – [Roxanna] It is. It’s a zombie head, but it has werewolf ears.
– [Parris] Oh, I see. It took features and combined them. That’s really clever. So, that’s a brief look at the game. You found a few extra features and things you could do. What was that last one with the suitcase? – Oh, there was some suitcase that you needed the right combination of two category characters, in order to be able to unlock it. – So, you would take the head off of one and the body of another,
put them together, and if you had that combination, – The right one. – You would get the magic thing from inside the suitcase. And then, you actually
killed the character, right? – [Ximena] Yeah, he just kept
– [Parris] What happened? – getting zapped, and then I ran him through a couple of
blazers, and you know– – [Parris] That’ll do it. Well, so what happened to it? – He just broke into pieces. – So, it’s like all the
pieces of this came apart. And then, is that gone forever, if you don’t have this, you
can’t play with it anymore? – Um, no, you just have to wait
for five minutes, and then– – So it’s five minutes, and
then it comes back in the game, and you can choose it again, OK. So, what did you think
of Sick Bricks, the game? – Honestly, love it. – [Parris] Good.
– [Ximena] It would be really fun for anybody my age. – For your age, OK, and that’s 11. What about for older kids? – Well, I’ve seen the kinda apps and games and stuff that kids my age play, and I think this would totally fit in to their category, too. – That’s good, 14-year-olds as well. On the package, it says
for ages six and up. I don’t think the little kids
are gonna get the references about the way that the Tiberius speaks, with the Captain Kirk accent. But if you do know that, it
does make it a lot more fun. And you get those cute little things they included in the game. Lots of detail, didn’t you
think the graphics were good? – Yeah. – So good, yes. – And you liked the game play? – Yes. – And of course, it’s perfect
for playing on a phone or a tablet, ’cause
it’s all tapping-based. I think we’re at that point in the video where we’re going to give the secret word from our channel, to
help solve that puzzle. And, uh oh, who has the
secret word, did you have it? Did you have the secret word? Where did we put the secret word? Now, I remember it was real simple. It was real short. And I think we’ve said it about 25 times in the video, already. I think it’s the word: is. I-S, the word is is the secret word that we’re contributing to this Vlog hop. Make a note of it. And at the end of this video, we’ll put a picture up. You can click on that
to go to the next video in the series, so you
can get the next word that you’ll need. Down below this video, in the description, we’ll also have all the
other channels doing this. If you just watch this video, and you say, “What in the world are you talking about? “Where’s the first word?” Well, that’s Mommy and Gracie’s video. That’s linked down below, as well. You can go back there, start with theirs, work your way through,
and get all the words. So that on Sunday, you’ll be able to enter the secret phrase,
and you’ll have a chance to win some of these Sick Bricks for yourself. Lucky winner, don’t you think? – [Ximena] (laughs) Yeah.
– [Roxanna] Yeah. – We recommend you give it a try. So, we’ve got our Sick Bricks. You guys can discuss
who’s gonna get which ones to add to your collection. But, where’d the phone go,
that we were playing on? Did the phone fall down there? Ximena, don’t put your foot on it! Oh no, you activated it! It’s pulling us into the game! Don’t forget to join the Dream Team, bye! – [Ximena] Bye.
– [Roxanna] Bye. ♫ It’s raining at our house ♫ Is it raining where you are? ♫ Kind of day to stay in and play ♫ Or eat a big chocolate bar ♫ Hang out with friends ♫ Til the weather ends ♫ And you don’t have to go too far ♫ Rainy Day Dreamers ♫ We’re always where you are ♫ – I’m stuck.
(laughter) I’m severely stuck. (laughter) – [Ximena] Here, I’ll pull the chair back.
