New Pirate-Themed Toys for Birthday Parties, Warm Weather and Uncharted Expeditions

(SAN FRANCISCO, Toy Fair 2007) – Ahoy Matey! It’s that time of year - pirates are hoisting their flags, assembling their crews and getting ready to set sail for springtime adventures. Fans of the ever-popular pirate play pattern can equip themselves with new products from A Pirate’s Life, Wild Planet’s brand of advanced role-play toys for kids ages 4 to 8.

Starting in spring 2007, kids can incorporate the Pirate Bomb Blast, Waterball Pirate Cannon and Pirate Pocket Watch into their favorite imaginative pirate scenarios.

    Pirate Bomb Blast™: electronic hot-potato-style game with sound effects, lights and vibrations Age: 4+ / SRP: $9.99 / Available: February 2007 at online and specialty stores such as The Official Wild Planet Toy Store

    There’s a mutiny on the ship and a rogue pirate lit the Pirate Bomb Blast in an effort to secure the treasure for himself. To stay safe, you’ve got to pass the Bomb Blast along as quickly as possible without having it blow while it’s in your hands.

    When will the bomb blast? Not even the captain knows. The suspense is heightened by the bomb’s vibrations, pirate voice prompts and the increasing intensity of the hissing sound from the flashing red fuse. Because the fuse glows, this game can be played in daylight or darkness.

    If the bomb is in your possession during its audio explosion – you’re out and the rogue pirate is one step closer to securing the treasure for himself. The electronic light, sound and vibration features of the Pirate Bomb Blast outperform anything a hot potato can offer. Sure to replace the warm spud at birthday parties, this unpredictable game of chance is fun with teams of two and with large groups alike.

    Waterball™ Pirate Cannon: water launcher propels 100 mini cannonballs of water per tank, up to 40 balls per minute Age: 4+ / SRP: $16.99 / Available: February 2007 at online and specialty stores such as The Official Wild Planet Toy Store

    The Waterball Pirate Cannon is perfect for pirate escapades in the warm summer sun. Pirates can launch surprise showers on unsuspecting civilians by sending waterballs soaring from behind their hideout up to 20 feet away. Forget streaming squirt guns and sputtering sprinklers – this is the way to play with water!

    This battery-free launcher fires 100 water cannons per tank, up to 40 per minute. Each cannon is approximately an inch in diameter – an ideal size for target-based games and for the ultimate water cannon challenge – catching waterballs in you mouth!

    Pirate Pocket Watch™: compass and secret message revealer contained in a compact pocket watch

    Age: 4+ / SRP: $9.99 / Available: February 2007 at online and specialty stores such as The Official Wild Planet Toy Store

    A Pirate’s most prized possession is his pocket watch (well, maybe next to his sword). The Pirate Pocket Watch has three key features – a digital watch, a compass and a secret message revealer. Keep track of time and direction while the message revealer keeps your pirate maps and notes safe from enemy eyes. Attach the cord on the compact unit to a belt and slip the watch into a pocket for easy access. A spectacular ruby encrusted button releases a pop-out red lens for reading secret messages on the toy’s package and for revealing treasure maps available for download at www.apiratelife.com.
