On February 15, 2009, at the New York Toy Fair, Kiz will unveil KizPal, the first of two initial product lines that access KizToys’ virtual Global Playground™.
KizPal is a line of action figures that features characters from KizPlanet, a new world where a special key unlocks an ever-evolving universe of excitement, education, adventure and games.
Each action figure is packaged with a USB key that accesses the KizPlanet virtual Global Playground and generates a digital avatar of the character. With their KizPals children can explore different areas of KizPlanet, safely interact with other kids, earn KizCash to “purchase” cool items and upgrades for their avatars, and play fun games.
All KizPal products are fully interactive with the KizPlanet Global Playground, and each individual product expands the world and the user’s experience as they become a part of the online KizPlanet story and play an active role in the continuously developing narrative.
The KizPlanet Global Playground is a virtual world ecosystem that connects children from around the globe in an exciting, safe 3D interactive environment. It is the place where all KizToys products come together to create a new, exciting virtual world that engages kids with thrilling adventures, awesome 3D graphics, educational experiences and interaction that can’t be found anywhere else.
KizPal characters have an MSRP of $24.99 (USD) and are intended for ages five and up.
