Earlier today I posted a press preview for SuperheroStuff.com which is a company that delivers quite a bunch of uhm “super hero stuff” 🙂 This was part of a Toy Fair 2016 Press Preview event that I attended with Skeleton Pete at a big warehouse/office space on the West Side called Domain. The other part of the preview was this awesome device called “Sphero”. It’s a robotic ball that is controlled by an app on your mobile device of choice. We would also be meeting his brother “Ollie” today which worked in the same fashion but was a different looking device for sure.
“Ollie” looked like something that would be fun as well and seemed a tad more rugged than the ball only design of “Sphero”. I loved that he had treads. Media present at the event were welcome to give both of these robot thingies a try. I had to say that I enjoyed the idea of it.
They even had some playsets for Sphero to be challenged on. These looked like a lot of fun.
Here I am with a box containing “Ollie” the other remote controlled device that you saw up in this post. They were kind enough to send us all home with a “Sphero” but not this newest one. Oh well, I’m not complaining.
Skeleton Pete and I will be hitting Toy Fair 2015 in the coming days and that means you are going to see a lot more posts like this so please stay tuned. Thanks again to the Domain NY Marketing folks for inviting us out to this fun afternoon. They had quite a spread set up as well. Take a look at the eats and drinks below.
