We tested a couple of products from Zume and we really liked them a lot. Here are our reviews:

We stayed after school with our teacher and some friends to test Zume's new portable badminton set. The game was very easy to put together; it only took 5 minutes. We played with four kids. Players of all skill levels, from beginners to advanced, can enjoy this game.

It doesn't take up a lot of space, but the only bad part is that you can't tell what is out of bounds. It's fun and you can play with family and friends outside or inside. If you are going somewhere you can take it with you, because it is easy to carry and all the pieces fit in the carrying case.

The second game we played was Zume Bottle Battle. This is a fun game you can play with your friends and family at any age.

It requires partners working together and lots of laughter. It takes only 5 to 10 minutes to build Bottle Battle in three easy steps.

First, you want to find a flat surface and place the poles 20, 30 or 40 feet apart, depending on the age and skill level of the players.

After that, you place the bottles on top of the poles and divide into teams (two or four kids can play at a time). Then you pick a pole with your team.

Last but not least, you aim the disk at your opponent's bottle and keep trying until you knock it down.

This game can test your strength and your skills. You will have plenty of laughs with your friends and family.
