Revell GmbH (Hall 12.2/P-13) is expanding its target group to include the baby and infants sector. Remote-controlled soft toy-crossovers which are distributed under the Revellino brand are the result of a co-operation with the German soft toy maker, Heunec. Furniture- and floor-friendly, they leave no marks on surfaces and are perfect for cuddling. Their machine-washable soft plush cover can even be removed for washing to restore their original fluffiness.
Infrared technology and sensors manoeuvre the squirrel on a scooter made by Winfat Industrial Company Limited from Hong Kong (Hall 4/F-13) around. Children are meant to pinch pine cones from a container attached to the scooter.
Smartphones and tablets have made into the world of babies. The Baby Chilling Box by Sterntaler GmbH (Hall 1/A-15, B-16) from Germany is a Bluetooth loudspeaker that replays input from smartphones and tablets from inside a soft toy. The toy animal becomes an entertainment and communication centre with a special touch.
