WowWee unleashes Untamed by Fingerlings
Fingerlings maker teams with Jazwares on UK early launch for spin-off of the hit toy
WowWee today unleashes the newest phenomenon in interactive robotic toys with the introduction of Untamed by Fingerlings, a new line of interactive predators that kids can can control, from friend...to foe!
With Fingerlings capturing the excitement of millions of fans worldwide, Jazwares and WowWee are proud to announce the UK as an official early launch market for the Untamed brand and anticipate similar success to follow suite of the Fingerlings craze. The first of the Untamed creatures, the Untamed Raptors, launch online and in-stores in the UK, Canada and Australia this week for their debut launch, with a scheduled release in the US for May.
“We have great retail support for Untamed with a healthy marketing campaign to compliment,” said Jonny Taylor, Managing Director at Jazwares. “We believe kids are going to love these Untamed Raptors and I have no doubt that they will be a hit!”
The newest spinoff from WowWee’s wildly successful Fingerlings family, the Untamed Raptors are lifelike creatures that are fierce and unpredictable - unlike their silly and cute distant Fingerlings cousins. It's up to kids whether the Untamed Raptors are friend or foe, as they unleash their new pets' ferocious side with a shake or poke to make them roar, hiss, and chomp. Or kids can tame their beasts by petting their noses to see them hum, coo, and purr.
“WowWee is all about delivering on-trend toys that take fun experiences to the next level with unmatched innovation and creativity,” said Andrew Yanofsky, Brand Manager at WowWee. “The Untamed line truly embodies that - packing amazing personality, features, and entertainment into a collectible interactive toy that’s both fierce and fun!”
There are four different Untamed Raptors characters, each with its own unique name and personality: Stealth, Blaze, Fury, and Razor. Complete with snapping jaws and gripping claws, these interactive creatures react to touch, motion, and sound with over 40 different sounds and Animations.
Untamed Raptors can be pre-ordered from toy retailers from today, 19 March, and will be available in-store at major retailers across the UK over the following weeks.
