“Whether your music is jumpin’, pumpin’ or thumpin’, this turtle can handle it! Meet I-TURTLE – the performing reptile! This electronic friend that loves to groove. Connect your portable music player (not included) to I-TURTLE and he plays your music through his built-in speaker. Or, just put I-TURTLE wherever music is play and watch him tap his foot along, bob his head and raise his shell with synchronized lights that flash to the rhythm! I-TURTLE communicates his moods through musical riffs, movement and tons of blinking light patterns on his shell! He even whines when he’s hungry for more music or attention! I-TURTLE loves to move and groove to your music, but watch out – flick its tail, and it won’t be happy! He may have a little shell, but he has a big sound! “

The i-Turtle is available from the Hasbro Toy Shop for $19.99.

SteamBot – A Robot Powered by Steam

Steambot is a robot that powered by steam.. no electricity is needed. What you need to make this thing move, to put water inside the robot by taking it’s head off, then slide in a tiny Esbit fire in to it’s belly which warms the water up. When steam is eventually created you spin the red wheel on it’s back which then sets the robot walking.
