On February 15, 2009, at the New York Toy Fair, Kiz® will unveil its virtual Global Playground™ and the two initial product lines that access this digital world, KizPal and KizMoto.
The KizPlanet Global Playground is a virtual world ecosystem that connects children from around the globe in an exciting, safe 3D interactive environment. In this world all KizToys products come together to let kids explore different areas of KizPlanet, safely interact with other kids, embark on thrilling quests and play fun games.
When kids plug in to this new world they aren’t just accessing another static online destination, they are entering a dynamic, ongoing story. KizPlanet is filled with diverse, fully developed characters and adventures, and when kids join this world they become an active participant in the continuously developing online narrative.
The user’s connection to this story is KizPal, a full line of action figures featuring original characters from KizPlanet. Each character has his/her own personality, style and assets, and every KizPal unlocks new areas, games and points of interaction in the virtual world. Kids can personalize their experience by earning KizCash to “purchase” cool items and upgrades for their avatars.
KizMoto works in much the same way, but with vehicles instead of action figures. The KizMotos are all unique and can be customized with appearance and performance upgrades. KizMoto keys provide access to exciting racing action that is exclusive to each KizMoto, allowing kids to test their personalized vehicles against the best drivers KizPlanet has to offer. Both KizMoto and KizPal also provide educational experiences that are seamlessly integrated into the fun on KizPlanet.
KizMoto and KizPal both have an MSRP of $24.99 (USD) and are intended for ages five and up.
