WowWee FlyTech(TM) Brings Disney’s Tinker Bell to Life
Disney's timeless fairy, Tinker Bell, is taking the fantasy of Never Land to the actual skies with the help of WowWee's award-winning FlyTech(TM) technology. WowWee, an Optimal Group company (NASDAQ: OPMR) and leading developer of innovative hi-tech consumer robotic and entertainment products, and Disney Consumer Products have brought the sassy and spirited Tinker Bell character to life, as a magical flying toy. Disney Fairies fans will get big thrills as the Tinker Bell flyer flutters to store shelves this month in anticipation of Walt Disney Pictures Tinker Bell releasing on Disney DVD and Blu-Ray October 28th.
Perfect for indoor flight, the Tinker Bell flyer powered with FlyTech technology features graceful flight patterns and enchanting wing design and is an elegant, easy-to-use vertical flyer. She is equipped with a flower wand remote controller designed specifically for children's hands and a decorative stand for storage when she needs to rest her wings. With the wand, users control the height and speed of the Tinker Bell flyer with ease, allowing her to soar, dive and glide. The wand also serves as a power source with an LED charge indicator – 18 minutes of charging gives Tinker Bell a magical power boost allowing for up to 4 minutes of flight.
The Tinker Bell flyer is constructed of light-weight, crash-resistant materials that prevent her from getting into mischief. As an ideal introduction to flight, she will entertain and delight children by allowing them to interact with a "real" Disney character. Dual-band infrared controls also allow users to fly up to two Tinker Bell flyers together in one room.
WowWee's award-winning FlyTech line of aeronautical products launched in 2007 with FlyTech Dragonfly(TM), the world's first commercially available radio-controlled ornithopter and one of TIME Magazine's "Best Inventions of the Year" (2007). Featuring the same dual wing design to provide lift and propulsion, the Tinker Bell flyer from FlyTech brings the magic of flight to a young generation of girls. The FlyTech line includes FlyTech Bladestar(TM), the first flying toy with sensor-based navigation, and other vertical indoor flyers including the FlyTech Bat(TM) and FlyTech Dragon(TM). The line also includes the FlyTech Butterfly(TM), FlyTech Mosquito(TM) and FlyTech Moth(TM) – flyers that feature a simple launching dock instead of a remote controller.
The Tinker Bell flyer from FlyTech is available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 at major retailers nationwide including Toys"R"Us, Wal-Mart, Radio Shack, Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and DisneyShopping.com. The Tinker Bell flyer is appropriate for ages 6 years and up and requires 4 "AA" batteries (not included).
