Combat Creatures- The Attacknid Robot. “The Greatest Toy in the Universe”

 

Behold. What you see before you is the ultimate Christmas 2012 toy. Yes, that’s right, a radio controlled 10” tall robot with 6 legs, a 360° rotating head and weapon firing abilities up to 30ft. Impressed yet?

 

Nicknamed ‘The Greatest Toy in the Universe’ the Attacknid robot is set to be the ultimate Christmas 2012 toy. Stuff Magazine reckon ‘they’re going to sell out faster than crackers at Christmas…’ And they’re a crackin’ deal at £69.99. (Excuse the pun)

Easily controllable via a wireless, radio control handset, the Attacknid comes with the cunning Bolt ‘n’ Battle Combat Armour that explodes on impact. Its Battle Brain disables itself when hit three times in a battle, leaving you with a good target to aim at. If that wasn’t enough, the robot has 3 different rapid repeat weapons which you can clip on and off in seconds, great in the heat of the battle.

The “greatest toy in the universe” can be played both indoor and out. You might want to think about creating your very own version of Robot Wars. You remember Robot Wars, right? Everyone remembers Robot Wars. The Attacknid combines fun with strategic play (yes Mum, strategic play- it really will enhance your brain power!) Hmmm, kind of/probably not.

We know you’re itching to know more so check out the Attacknids features here:

Features:

  • Six legged battling robot
  • Fires up to 30 feet
  • 360° rotating head for ultra-manoeuvrability
  • Easy to use wireless radio control handset, 2.4ghz chip allows for over 40 robots to battle at once
  • Three rapid repeat weapons: Snyper Dart, Destroyer Spheres and Dissector Discs
  • Weapons attach on and off quickly and easily
  • Requires 6x AA batteries (2 for handset, 4 for Attacknid) – batteries not included

Due for release on 12th November 2012, the Attacknid is available for pre-order on www.iwantoneofthose.com  Order TODAY to guarantee yours (and squeals of delight on Christmas morning!) With FREE UK delivery and six legs to travel with, it’ll be waiting on your doorstop as quick as a flash.

The new App Gear toys that interact with downloadable apps! Cool!? Yes, we know.

If you haven’t heard of these yet, where have you been? Gaming reality just got way more awesome with AppGear, a mobile app technology that will give you the ultimate gaming experience. Remember when we once all thought the ultimate gaming experience was a piece of string and a conker? How things change eh? We’re a million (maybe even a trillion) miles away from that now.

Recently toys and electronics have converged to create a fun and engaging way to utilise the newest technology such as smartphone and tablets. A couple of years ago we could have argued that toys would take a backseat to the influx of awesome gadgets and apps we had suddenly available to us – now they enhance it. Everyone loves a happy ending.

So what do they actually do? We hear you say. AppGear is an innovative line of apps that interact with collectible toys, which attach to your smartphone to enable gaming interaction. Take 3D cinema as a rather poor example, you’re watching the film yet you feel like you’re in the film, with App Gear you’re playing the game and you feel like you’re in the game- a beautiful mixture of fantasy and reality.

The range of AppGear games can be played on an iPhone, iTouch, iPad or Android device and is FREE (yes, free) to download. Waheey! App Gear brings gaming to reality and is anticipated to be the best new tech in 2012.

App Gear is recommended for ages 9+ but the games are definitely not restricted to kids. There’s plenty of scope for adult App Gear addicts too.  At IWOOT HQ, Josh (our resident Merchandiser) cannot be beaten at Zombie Burbz, we’ve bet our lunch money plenty of times and had to go hungry.

You can expect to see a lot more of this blending of real-world toys and digital apps in the years ahead, especially with more children having access to devices. Check out the stats below…

– 52% of children own their own app capable device (68% of 6-8s, 32% of 3-5s)

– 8% of children own their own iPhone (11% other app capable smart phones)

– 20% have an iPod Touch (12% of 3-5 year olds)

– 9% have their own iPad (6% of 3-5 year olds

We genuinely think App Gear is totally awesome but don’t just take our word for it…AppGear was first presented at The Toy Fair 2012 and received a fantastic reaction. Jason Bradbury, presenter on the Gadget Show took to Twitter to share his excitement tweeting “Wowwee getting into seriously fun app/toys with AppGear.” He’s not the only one, check out reviews from MSN online and Easier Technology below.

“Best tech toy for 2012” MSN online

“AppGear wows Toy Fair as best new tech” Easier Technology

Fancy a nosey? We now have Zombie Burbz and Foam Fighters in stock ranging from £9.99 to £12.99, they’re available here http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/gifts/toys/app-gear.list

Competition Time!!!

Don’t fret we have plenty more coming soon including Alien Jailbreak, Mysterious Raygun, Akodomon, Elite ComandAR and Doctor Who. Which one will you choose? For the chance to win ‘Zombie Burbz’ tell us what type of devices App Gear can be used on.

A With iPhone, iTouch, iPad or Android devices

B With a bat and ball

C With apiece of string and a conker

To enter this competition simply leave a comment below. Competition closes Friday 25th May, we will announce the winner on our blog and Facebook page.   http://www.facebook.com/iwantoneofthose
