Moving & Grooving Snake Speakers - 50% Off RRP

Everyone remembers the popular Movin' & Groovin' Flowers by Commonwealth toys. Ninties-esque flower speakers which moved and grooved to your tunes. Just like real flowers, they had sunglasses and little handbags...
Not as many people have heard of the Movin' & Groovin' Snake Speakers also by Commonwealth. While they weren't as well known, we think that on the whole they are better made and much, much less girly... Perfect for any snake lovers or anyone who needs to overcome their fear...
This groovy snake speaker comes with its own 3.5 mm jack connector for any of your multimedia devices. It doesn't require pluging in as it is battery powered. This makes it more portable and means it can be used outside. Just crank up the volume and enjoy the snake grooving to the beat. It can also be used as a stand alone speaker. For a portable speaker of its size, the sound quality is very clear and will liven up any desk space.

The Snake Speaker Retails at £29.99 but is sold at the Electronic Pet Shop, from just £14.99. As with all of the pets adopted you can add all the details about the new owner and personality of the pet to receive a Free personalised adoption package.

Hasbro, Inc. Launches PROJECT ZAMBI for Children Orphaned by AIDS in Africa - Press Release

PAWTUCKET, RI, February 10, 2009 – Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE:HAS) announces the launch of PROJECT ZAMBI, a global cause initiative dedicated to raising awareness and supporting programs that help care for the estimated 15 million children who have been orphaned as a result of the AIDS epidemic in Africa.

This latest initiative, which was employee driven, complements the work Hasbro conducts in the U.S. and around the world in helping children in need through the Hasbro Children’s Fund and product donations. In 2008, Hasbro impacted approximately six million children through its charitable programs and product donations.
To bring PROJECT ZAMBI to life, Hasbro will introduce ZAMBI THE BABY ELEPHANT, a special edition FURREAL FRIENDS plush toy. ZAMBI THE BABY ELEPHANT will be available this fall in Australia; Canada; Germany; France; Spain; the United Kingdom; and the United States.

“Hasbro has long understood the important role our company, and our employees can play in helping to address critical children’s issues in the United States and around the world,” said Brian Goldner, Hasbro’s President & CEO. “PROJECT ZAMBI will raise awareness and funding for this important initiative, providing hope for children in need in Africa while reinforcing Hasbro’s ongoing commitment to children and families everywhere.

ZAMBI THE BABY ELEPHANT (Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $49.99/Available Fall 09) features soft and cuddly ears and feet that are covered in a special fabric pattern designed by boys and girls from Zambia in one of the communities dedicated to caring for children orphaned by AIDS. Like the other animals in the FURREAL FRIENDS line of “come to life” plush pets, when you play with ZAMBI THE BABY ELEPHANT, he will play, blow kisses, raise his trunk, and trumpet his elephant call. He’ll also have a sensor on his trunk, so he can hold onto your finger and “shake” your hand.

Hasbro has committed to donate a minimum of $500,000 (in U.S. dollars) to the PROJECT ZAMBI Fund, part of the Hasbro Children’s Fund, in 2009. This fund will benefit programs that help make life better for children orphaned by AIDS in Africa. The company hopes to expand this global campaign to include additional Hasbro products and brands in the years to come.

Hasbro employees developed the PROJECT ZAMBI concept after being inspired by the Chikumbuso Women’s and Orphans’ Project in Zambia. For a number of years the Hasbro Children’s Fund has supported programs in Zambia that assist children in need.

WowWee Alive Animals

In 2008 WowWee Robotics released 'Alive pets,' a new range of electronic animals. There are four Alive pets in the range; a Lion, Polar Bear, Panda and White Tiger.

The WowWee Alive pets are quite similar to the FurReal Luv Cubs and Jungle Cats but are more interactive and highly realistic. The pets all make different sounds and respond to motion and touch.
You can't ignore the similarities between the two ranges. Even the tag lines 'If it's not FurReal, it's not For Real' and 'So Real it's Unreal' seem to hold a clear resemblence. The WowWee animals are slightly more expensive than the equivilant FurReal Friends but well worth the extra. They retail at £49.99 but will undoubtably go up in price when the range gets discontinued. Hopefully the new competition for Hasbro will encourage new ranges of realistic pets with more features.

The Alive Panda and White Tiger were Exclusives but have now been released for general distribution. Electronic Pet Shop are currently the only place where you can choose from all four Alive Pets. To celebrate, for a short time we have reduced the price of the WowWee Lion and Polar Bear to £39.99. As always, this will include a free adoption package if you select the details.

New Teksta Robotic Pets!

Electronic Pet Shop now stocks Teksta Newborn Monkey! Teksta Newborn Monkey is the latest in the Teksta line and is available at the same price as the Teksta Newborn Dalmatian.

The Teksta Newborns come in at £24.99 which is quite a difference from the Teksta Playful Pup. The newborns are perfect for a younger child who wants a Teksta but probably lacks the attention needed for the larger dog.

Unlike the playful pup, the newborns only move in one direction and cannot avoid objects. However, do not let this put you off. The newborns have most of the same features as the larger Teksta including the ability to 'sense' your hand when it is near. In a similar way to the playful pup, it can also be controlled with the included remote control.

Children will also appreciate the mood changes of the monkey. Most of all, the newborn is perfect for someone who loves robots but doesn't want a dog. If only it was legal to keep a real monkey...
