Attacknids win 'TNPC Seal of Approval'

undefined

It’s a happy day at Combat Creatures HQ! Our Attacknids have picked up yet another award! Already this year they’ve won the Popular Science Best at Show award at New York Toy Fair and Best Boys Toy of the Year in Australia. Now they’ve gone and been awarded the National Parenting Center seal of approval.

The National Parenting Center seal means so much to us because we believe so strongly in awards that are endorsed and tested by the most important people of all – the kids, and perhaps the second most important people, their parents! So this is a proud day for us all and we couldn’t wait to share the news with you all.

The National Parenting Center also put an awesome review on their website…

"Watching this spider-like robot come to life and start crawling around your home is quite a sight. We've seen lots of remote controlled vehicles but nothing that moves quite like this. Using the remote control takes only minutes to master and in no time you will be antagonizing the dog while firing soft foam disks. 

The real fun comes when you introduce a second Attacknid and the battle ensues. The objective here is to knock off the armor of your opponent with those disks that fly a lot further than you might think. Granted at nearly $100 many parents won't be buying two, but you can bet your kids or Dad will be begging for another one or at least scouring the neighborhood for an opponent. 

Testers thought the build quality was superb as it survived numerous drops onto hard floors. The instruction manual is very thorough and will get even the most novice of R/C operators maneuvering their combat creature in short order. Testers also felt good about the softness of the disks and their inability to inflict any damage, other than to other Attacknids."
