Don’t all budding musicians practice in the bath? That’s because bath time can provide a rich learning environment for children. Using water to tune the flute like a slide whistle allows them to see how the water volume affects the whistle’s tone. Plus, waterproof music sheets allow kids to play music by color. The award-winning line of Tub Tunes™ was expanded to include tunable Water Drums, Trumpet, and a Xylophone.
Gliders are fun, but they don’t stay airborne very long since they’re not meant to be launched at a high speed. To remedy that, we took aerodynamics to a higher level and developed the Jet Hawk with folding deployable wings and a compressed air launch gun. Simply fold back the wings, pump the launcher, and fire it into the sky. The wings deploy at the apex of flight for the longest flight possible.
The best part about water guns is soaking your friends. The worst part about water guns is filling and pumping them. So we created the Speed Loader. This bad boy rapidly refills using the filling attachment on a hose. While filling, it captures the pressure of the hose and inflates an internal bladder, allowing you to spray continuously without the need to pump it. Don’t just get ‘em wet, DRENCH ‘EM!
Wearing light toys in night clubs is super popular. But we knew we could pump up the experience by giving the devices the ability to flash to the music. So the Sonic Rainbow watch was born. The internal microphone listens for different sound frequencies and flashes to the music, providing a synchronized light show on your wrist. Red for bass, green for treble, yellow and orange for mid-range. What’s more, this colorful creation was featured in Wired Magazine.
Building on the popularity of light toys, the Neon Ghost™ takes the fun even further by using electro luminescent panels to create animated light shows around your wrist and around the dial of the watch. Licensed by Takara Japan, this product was also featured in Wired Magazine.
Handheld games sold in the millions before smartphones arrived. But with new technologies come new opportunities. We seized those opportunities and created games that were then licensed to Tiger Electronics.
Head2Head™ sports games used new high-capacity drivers to create pixelated replays to bring the action to life. Before, only static printed images were used.
Meteors™ was created when we learned that many kids played LCD games in the car, but the games could not be played in the dark. Our bright idea used LEDs to power the game so it could be played in the dark with brilliant LED light.
