Yulu at Toy Fair 2020: Fun at reasonable prices

by Sean P. Aune | February 29, 2020February 29, 2020 12:30 pm EST

Yulu is a fairly new company in the marketplace which has made a name for itself with its games and a promise: Its products are always under $20. In a world of climbing prices, that’s notable to be sure.

At Toy Fair 2020 Yulu was showing off a lot of new games that will be coming out over the year. First up was Break the Board which will hit stores in the fall.

BREAK THE BOARD™ is the action-packed electronic game that takes a popular activity with kids – karate – and delivers the most iconic moment in the sport: breaking the wooden board! Listen to the commands and master the moves to make it through increasingly challenging levels. If you’re fast and accurate, you get to Break the Board and become the ultimate martial arts master!

Diamond Heist will have you racing against the police to escape with a stolen diamond. Just in our little demo time with the prototype, it was making me tense!

DIAMOND HEIST™ is the ultimate cooperative game where you work together to win . . . or you’ll get caught! An evil organization has stolen a precious diamond and has hidden it deep within their vault. It’s up to you and your fellow spies to rappel into the vault, eliminate the alarms, retrieve the diamond and escape before the Security guards arrive. It takes teamwork, communication, and steady hands to succeed!

  • The guards are alerted when the vault is opened.
  • Retrieve the diamond and get away before the Guards arrive, or you’ll be trapped!

Ideal for 2 to 4 players

Follow the instructions, pass the popcorn, and make sure you aren’t the last one holding it when the timer goes off or you will be covered in the colorful popcorn.

Don’t be left holding the Popcorn when it Pops! POPCORN POPPIN’™ is the fast and funny game where players must pass the popcorn bucket before the popcorn pops. While the timer counts down, players follow the instructions from the pop-up die and pass the popcorn as quickly as they can, trying not to be the one holding the bucket when the popcorn pops!
