Radica Sept 2007 Funkeys at Limited Too

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.—Radica USA is offering an exclusive version of its new U.B. Funkeys game at tween specialty retailer Limited Too.

Radica’s U.B. Funkeys features a line of 42 collectible vinyl toy figures—some more collectible than others—each of which unlocks areas of a branded website where fans can explore a virtual world full of “games, stores, quests and surprises,” according to the company. By playing games on the site, visitors earn virtual coins by which they can customize the ‘cribs’ in the Funkeys world.

<b>Radica</b>Limited Too’s exclusive pink version of U.B. Funkeys, which arrived in stores this month, includes a special pink hub, unique unlock code and special packaging. This version of the game’s code gives kids access to virtual Limited Too items that they can place in their cribs.

“We’re excited to partner with Limited Too to bring a special edition Funkeys character to tween girls across the country,” said Jim Wagner, senior vice president of Radica, Mattel Brands. “Limited Too has proven to be a leading tween retailer over the years and this partnership provides a fantastic opportunity to deliver a fun version of our new game that will appeal directly to tween girls.”

Radica’s U.B. Funkeys Starter Kit ($19.99) includes a U.B. Funkeys hub—a reader that allows a computer to know which Funkey vinyl a child is using—along with two vinyl character figures and PC software. Additional Funkeys characters are sold individually for $4.99.

Mattel & Radica May 2007 New 20Q Harry Potter Game! - Harry Potter's Page


New 20Q Harry Potter Game!
Harry Potter's Page, FL -

BURBANK, Calif., May 11, 2007 - Warner Bros. Consumer Products has teamed up with 20Q.net, Inc. and Radica USA Ltd., a subsidiary of Mattel, to introduce the newest version of the popular 20Q™ handheld game – 20Q™ Harry Potter, based on the popular movie and book series.

20Q™ is an artificial intelligence engine, website, company and phenomenon. Originally available only online, the game had players simply think of an animal, vegetable, mineral or other item, and 20Q™ attempted to guess what they were thinking of in twenty questions or less. Each time the online training game is played, 20Q™ “learns.”

20Q™ Harry Potter is the most recent edition to the popular handheld game that has been described as “spooky” and “deceptively addictive.” Based on the original 20Q™ game that won over millions of players from around the world, 20Q™ Harry Potter asks fans to think of people, places, and things from the books and films. The goal? Try to stump the game’s remarkably clever and precise artificial intelligence with knowledge of Harry’s wizarding world

In an effort to develop the game and help “teach” 20Q™ about the world of Harry Potter, Warner Bros. Consumer Products, 20Q.net and Radica are encouraging Harry Potter fans to visit http://20Q.net and “train” this timeless game of Twenty Questions. Radica will manufacture and distribute the new 20Q™ Harry Potter game later this year.
