Unleash Ferocious at Your Fingertips™! Fingerlings® maker WowWee® Introduces UNTAMED™

Montreal, March 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WowWee®, a leading manufacturer of innovative consumer robotic and entertainment products, today unleashes the newest phenomenon in interactive robotic toys. Introducing UNTAMED™ by Fingerlings® – putting Ferocious at your Fingertips™ with a line of interactive predators that you can control from friend…to foe! The first of the UNTAMED creatures – the UNTAMED Raptors – roar online and in-stores in Canada, Australia, and the UK this week for their debut launch.

The newest spinoff from WowWee’s wildly successful Fingerlings family, the UNTAMED Raptors are lifelike creatures that are fierce and unpredictable! The UNTAMED Raptors are four different characters, each with its own unique name and personality: Stealth, Blaze, Fury, and Razor. Complete with snapping jaws and gripping claws, these fierce and friendly interactive pets react to touch, motion, and sound with over 40 different sounds and animations. Collect them all to unleash their full ferocity at your fingertips – these pets are yours to tame, and the control is in your hands!

WowWee continues to pride itself in delivering on phenomenal play patterns with meaningful innovation that allows for extraordinary prices, following on the success of its Fingerlings line of monkeys, unicorns, sloths and more this past holiday season.

“We’ve struck a chord by delivering a truly interactive experience at an affordable price,” said Andrew Yanofsky, Brand Manager at WowWee. “And, it’s also about delivering great characters that truly feel alive!”

“We’re empowering kids by putting them in control. They get to decide, based on how they play, how their UNTAMED creature interacts with them…whether that’s angry, calm, tamed, or untamed. This was an important focus for us in our development.” adds Davin Sufer, Chief Tech Officer at WowWee.

The adventure unleashes in Canada, Australia, and the UK for pre-order beginning this week and will be available at all international major retailers in-store in the coming weeks. The UNTAMED Raptors will hit stores in May and be priced at $14.99 each USD.
