By leveraging HEXBUG’s robotics expertise, HEXBUG entered the toy industry in 2007 with the launch of the HEXBUG Micro Robotic Creatures product line. HEXBUG was designed to give children a positive experience with robotics at a young age. HEXBUG’s passion for robotics, as demonstrated by our VEX Robotics program, was the main catalyst fueling HEXBUG’s inception. Hence, the brand was born! People are drawn to the HEXBUG brand for the products’ fascinating behavior, intelligent bug-like attributes and eye-catching packaging. Some of the products are so animated, they even fool cats, dogs and some humans into thinking they are alive!

WowWee®, a leading manufacturer of innovative consumer robotic and entertainment products, today unleashes the newest phenomenon in interactive robotic toys. Introducing UNTAMED™ by Fingerlings® – putting Ferocious at your Fingertips™ with a line of interactive predators that you can control from friend…to foe! The first of the UNTAMED creatures – the UNTAMED Raptors – roar online and in-stores in Canada, Australia, and the UK this week for their debut launch.
The newest spinoff from WowWee’s wildly successful Fingerlings family, the UNTAMED Raptors are lifelike creatures that are fierce and unpredictable! The UNTAMED Raptors are four different characters, each with its own unique name and personality: Stealth, Blaze, Fury, and Razor. Complete with snapping jaws and gripping claws, these fierce and friendly interactive pets react to touch, motion, and sound with over 40 different sounds and animations. Collect them all to unleash their full ferocity at your fingertips – these pets are yours to tame, and the control is in your hands!
WowWee continues to pride itself in delivering on phenomenal play patterns with meaningful innovation that allows for extraordinary prices, following on the success of its Fingerlings line of monkeys, unicorns, sloths and more this past holiday season.
“We’ve struck a chord by delivering a truly interactive experience at an affordable price,” said Andrew Yanofsky, Brand Manager at WowWee. “And, it’s also about delivering great characters that truly feel alive!”
“We’re empowering kids by putting them in control. They get to decide, based on how they play, how their UNTAMED creature interacts with them…whether that’s angry, calm, tamed, or untamed. This was an important focus for us in our development.” adds Davin Sufer, Chief Tech Officer at WowWee.
The adventure unleashes in Canada, Australia, and the UK for pre-order beginning this week and will be available at all international major retailers in-store in the coming weeks. The UNTAMED Raptors will hit stores in May and be priced at $14.99 each USD.

I believe there’s no kid would say they don’t like Peek A Boo. All the parents admit this point. But parents can’t play this game with their kids all the time. The reason is very simple, because we are adults and we always forget. There is a genius idea to make your kids feel happy all the time with their favorite games. Just bringing them a lovely toy which can play Peek A Boo with them. I will say Mickey mouse or Minnie probably will be the best choice.
How cute it is! It will be your kids’ best friend!

Say Hello To Mochi Music Makers, Teethers, Blocks And More!
Developmental Toys Made With Rice That’s 100% Green And 100% Fun
Babies and rice have always had a healthy relationship since the first spoonful of rice cereal passed their lips. And let’s face it; everything a baby touches eventually meets their mouth!
Thanks to an ingenious Japanese technology, babies can now teeth and drool over marvelous Mochi Teething Ring ($19.99) or Mochi Maraca ($24.99) from People Toy Company (www. peopletoy.co).
The Mochi toy seriesis created with rice harvested from Japan! Mochi, the Japanese word for rice cake, is a rice-plastic technology that’s 51% rice. This first toy given to baby — such as the Mochi Teething Plate ($14.99) — allows parents piece of mind as it is 100% green with no toxic paints or adhesives. In fact, open the package and smell the rice! “This developmental toy collection prides itself on earth-to-home craftsmanship,” proudly explains Rudy Valenta, President of the U.S. branch of Japan’s People Toy Company, makers of Mochi.
“In fact, you can even smell the aromatic notes of fresh rice grains as soon as you open up the packaging!”
Toot toot for the Mochi Trumpet ($24.99). At age 3 months, this is the perfect toy to nurture baby’s cognitive reasoning skills through play. The two-way trumpet uses an infant’s natural sucking and teething motions to create sound when they breathe in or out. Created for play from newborn to 2-years-old, the 28-piece Mochi Blocks Premium Set ($79.99) is wonderfully safe and hand-assembled to exact specifications in Japan.
This ultimate baby shower gift will be cherished as baby crosses each milestone from grasping the blocks to stacking, sorting and solving puzzles through play! American mom bloggers who have gotten their hands on these yummy toys gush at their design features.
“A safe, great option for teething babies,” writes ttmp.com, “the ring doubles as a fun, easy-to-hold toy and promote hand dexterity as well as helping the baby’s first set of teeth come in with less hassle. The teething plate on the other hand sports a unique design that allows infants to hold the plate while chomping on its ridges and bumps to help soothe cutting gums.”
As their website, www.PeopleToy.co, describes, all toys are created with rice that’s harvested in Japan and then transported to People’s state-of-the-art facilities. Next, the rice is mixed with a unique blend of special ingredients to create 100% safe and sustainable Mochi rice-plastic.
People’s engineers hand-assemble each piece to precise specifications, free of any harmful adhesives and paints. The pieces are then packed with love and care, before they make their trip to the U.S. and ultimately baby’s home!
