    About Bakugan

    The ultimate action toy-meets-trading card game, Bakugan are small
colorful balls that spring into powerful monsters when rolled over Bakugan
game cards. The perfect combination of collectability, skill, strategy, action
and competitive play, Bakugan has become a highly successful global franchise
driven by the success of the toy; its hit animated TV series on the Cartoon
Network in the U.S. and Teletoon in Canada; a robust licensing and
merchandising program; a video game from Activision which will be released in
October across multiple gaming platforms; and a movie deal with Universal
Pictures that will bring Bakugan to the big screen in a live-action feature
slated for 2011.
