Unleashes Waterball on the World!
SAN FRANCISCO Feb. 12, 2003--You've got
to see it to believe it! It's magical -- balls of water flying through the air! If you go
to one booth at Toy Fair this year, go to Wild Planet Toys to see Waterball(TM) -- the
ultimate water toy with one-of-a-kind technology that sends liquid marbles soaring. Be the
first to see what the world will rave about this summer!
Waterball(TM) is just one of the amazing new toys to be unveiled by award-winning Wild
Planet Toys at the International Toy Fair in New York. Renowned for its cutting-edge Spy
Gear(TM) line, Wild Planet will also first introduce Spy Stealth Communicators(TM), a
sleek, futuristic set of heads-up-display communicators that send text messages through
walls up to 300 feet.
"We are completely dedicated to
innovation," said Daniel Grossman, CEO of Wild Planet Toys. "Each of our six
brands includes products that are the first and only of their kind."
Here's a "sneak peek" at what
you'll find on the show floor, and at retail, this year:
Featuring one-of-a-kind newly patented
technology, Waterball(TM) Launchers give you the power to send water soaring 15 to 20 feet
in round, self-contained balls unlike anything you've ever seen. The sleek,
futuristically-designed Waterball Launcher comes in two versions: Waterball SL 175, a
single-ball launcher that projects 175 Waterballs per reservoir at a rate of up to 40
