Odyssey Fields Both Kinetic & Stationary Intros at NYC Toy Fair
Odyssey Toys took the occasion of the 2020 NYC-held Toy Fair in late February to introduce a host of new products to capture kids’ imagination. Among them was the Roller Car ($49.95; May availability), which is a remote-controlled racing vehicle one minute – and with the push of a button, instantaneously changes shape, curling up into a ball that rolls and tumbles across the floor.
Also on view, in the company’s Tech line, was the Odyssey Bluetooth Neck Fan ($39.99; July availability), which serves as a shoulder-resting cooling device until the wearer deploys the set of retractable Bluetooth earphones nestled within the fan housing, transforming the fan into a music-listening device.
The company further showed its Walkie-Talkie Robot ($29.95; May availability), which is receptive to a child’s commands via its built-in speaker, in addition to being controllable with a handheld remote.
Also at the show was a crowd favorite in the Creepy Critters Collection; the Slithering Snake ($19.99) – and it was joined in that line this show by the Angry Anaconda, which is about double its size. Both reptiles are kept under tight reins via their remote controls.
