Game centers still reign supreme in Japan: in any city neighborhood or suburb mall, expect to find at least one shop where people of all ages feed coins to game machines of all designs and varieties. Among these machines, the UFO catchers (also known as "crane machines" or "claw cranes") are among gamers' favorites: the Japanese are always eager to take the challenge and win a toy-prize and they have developed whole strategies on how to do it. If you aren't in Japan but would like to try your hand at these deceptively difficult games, the Pokemon Crane Moncolle Catcher is for you!
Unpack it, put in batteries and fill the main area with your favorite Pokemon characters (there are three already included but you can add anything from the Moncolle series, or anything else for that matter!). Set it on a tabletop, insert a token (no real coins needed), and take it for a ride. It won't be long before you are hooked and engrossed in how to win the characters with the claw. Great fun and an easy way to build good eye and hand coordination for yourself or your children.
