PLAYMONSTER SWINGS INTO 2019 WITH NEW, WILD KIDS’ GAME

Orangutwang is as Fun as it Sounds, with a Goofy Ape Hangin’ Around, Holding Snacks and Waiting to Go Twaaaang!

BELOIT, Wis. (March 1, 2019) — Kids’ games featuring fun, colorful characters are always popular, but add the element of suspense and it’s sure to be a new favorite! Orangutwang™ delivers on both counts, and it’ll have kids jumping and laughing for more!

Just visually, Orangutwang is a super cool game with its two tall palm trees connected by a string, the colorful and quirky toucan lever, the bright playing pieces shaped like fruit or critters, and the giant, amused orangutan that hangs from the string! To play the game, simply roll the die to find out which play piece you get to hang on the orangutan (banana, pineapple, gecko, fruit bat or coconut). Be careful how you hang it…at some point it will be too much for the orangutan and he’ll leap and swing and go twaaaannng!

The player who makes the orangutan go flying and throw his fruit and friends technically loses the game, but do they really lose? It’s fun and hilarious to see him go twang, so really all the players are winners! Orangutwang is a fun, suspenseful game for two or more players, ages 4+. No batteries required. Available now for an SRP of $19.99 – $24.99.

PLAYMONSTER LAUNCHES TWO NEW GAMES FOR KIDS, BY KIDS

Young Inventor Challenge Winners with Great Game Concepts will See Their Hard Work Pay Off and Bring Fun to Other Kids and Families!

BELOIT, Wis. (January 28, 2019) — PlayMonster, a proud sponsor of the Chicago Toy & Game Week’s Young Inventor Challenge, is proud to be producing the fun and creative games of two of the recent years’ winners. The new games will be revealed during North American International Toy Fair in New York, February 16 – 19 at booth #435.

PlayMonster is a proud sponsor of the annual Young Inventor’s Challenge held in Chicago during Toy & Game Week. The Young Inventor Challenge provides an opportunity for children to showcase their own original toy and game inventions to toy industry professionals, members of media and the general public and ignite their imagination, creativity and presentation skills!

Because PlayMonster believes in the importance of play, and the importance of encouraging and nurturing play and creativity, they take part in the Young Inventor Challenge event, reviewing concepts and offering mentorship and advice to young inventors. With that, they have taken the opportunity to work with young people and produce their game ideas.

Goo on My Shoe™, a board game invented by 9-year-old Edie, is a fun pathway game with 3D shoe pawns that “walk” around the board, trying to avoid the little blobs of putty-like goo that could be things such as gum, poo, slime, etc. Players can also strategically leave piles of goo for other players to encounter. The goal is to make it to the fountain and “wash” the goo off your shoe! For 2 to 4 players ages 4 and up, this game will be available Fall 2019.

Draw Into Crime™, a “sketchy” game by 11-year-old Tiggy, is a mix or mystery, deduction and drawing! A crime has been committed, and one player has seen the suspect. Other players ask questions to try and figure out what the “perp” looked like and draw a sketch of the criminal. The player who gets closest to the actual picture of the suspect wins that round! You don’t necessarily have to be a good artist, just a good detective! Perfect fun for 3 or more players, ages 6 and up, Draw Into Crime will arrive on shelves in Fall 2019.

PLAYMONSTER GROWS INSANELY HOT RELATIVE INSANITY GAME

Jeff Foxworthy’s Successful Relative Insanity Game Gets a Follow up One Year Later

BELOIT, Wis. (January 28, 2019) — When PlayMonster launched comedian Jeff Foxworthy’s hilarious game Relative Insanity at last year’s Toy Fair, it was the beginning of a very successful game line. Because it’s such a hit, and fans and players are begging for more hilarious content, Foxworthy wrote more material about crazy families and PlayMonster developed a smaller stand-alone game that can also be added to the original. The game will be revealed during North American International Toy Fair in New York, February 16 – 19 at booth #435.

Game play is the same as the original game fans love, allowing player to mix and match bits of Foxworthy’s comedy that creates wacky situations about family. Everyone has a crazy friend or family member (or two or three…) and can totally relate to this game’s hilarious situations and humor!

In Relative Insanity, one player will read a setup card, such as “When the customs agent asked my mother if she had anything to declare, she blurted out…” and the other players will decide which of their punch line cards they want to play. So maybe you’d end up with these statements:

  1. Your face could stop a clock.
  2. I can’t button my britches!
  3. In my fantasy, I’m wearing a camouflage thong!
  4. I will pay you to scratch my chigger bites.
  5. I have a little condensation in my basement.
  6. Girrrrrlllll, please!

 

The reader then gets to choose their favorite punch line, and the owner of that card gets a point!

This peggable game features 30 all new setup cards and 150 all new punch lines. Foxworthy originally created the game with laughter in mind, inspired by the insanity of his own family and friends. And because the insanity never ends, he keeps on writing more cards! Relative Insanity Expansion/Travel Pack is a fun game on its own, or added to the original game, and is for 4 to 12 players, ages 14 to adult, and lands on shelves in Summer 2019.

Jeff Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country. He is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and best-selling author of 11 books. Widely known for his Blue Collar Comedy Tour and redneck jokes, his act goes well beyond that to explore the humor in everyday family interactions and human nature.

BELOIT, Wis. (January 28, 2019)  — PlayMonster has grown its Mirari® brand to meet the needs and desires of today’s parents, who are looking for premium toys made with different materials, such as wood. With that in mind, PlayMonster redesigned some of Mirari’s most popular toys, and created a new one, all with brand new closed packaging as well.

myStorymaker™ is an innovative new Mirari toy that has the familiar shape and size of a child’s tablet, but features stimulation for imagination! Pressing a colorful button from each section as it lights up allows children to create a story! As prompted, they choose a hero, adventure and happy ending that plays for them using adorable sounds and voices! Pressing the Mirari button activates a giggle and the narrator. Parents can also record the child’s name so that the story playback will announce who made the story! The front panel is made of sustainable wood. For ages 12 months and up.

myKeys™ feautures a smooth wood ring that holds three fun keys that look like a kitty, a piggy and a froggy! When children press the coordinating buttons on the wood-accented fob, they’ll hear sweet phrases that tell them what that animal says! Each key also has a different texture for a sensory experience. As with the other Mirari toys, the Mirari button activates the signature giggle. For ages 6 months and up.

Comeback Koala™ is a fun, rolling, tumbling toy for children! Play in two ways: roll the cylinder for babies to chase after, or press the Mirari button to activate the comeback feature so it rolls back when rolled! No matter how children play with it, the adorable koala stays upright inside and the contained balls roll and rumble inside! The sides are made with sustainable wood. No batteries required.
