Ever wondered what can you get for your daughter if she has already been pampered with a slew of high tech gizmos such as an iPhone, a Nintendo DS Lite (in Coral Pink, no less), and a PS3 at home? For starters, the UBFunkeys look pretty cool and will definitely be a hit with those who want have a penchant for collecting items in the entirety. Each of these tiny vinyl dolls do not only look cute and pretty on their own, but are connectable as well. When hooked up to a computer, the UBFunkey will load its very own virtual world known as Funkeytown, letting you explore the nuances of their virtual world.
The UBFunkey Starter Set consists of two UBFunkeys and a UBFunkey hub that acts as the portal to Funkeytown. Connecting a new UBFunkey to this hub will unlock new games and puzzles, so the more the merrier in this case. UBFunkeys start from £4.95 a pop. Sounds pretty interesting in theory, but like any other toy these days, it will probably keep your kid hooked for a couple of weeks before something new comes and capture his/her attention. Give me my Animal Crossing anytime 🙂
