Uno Fraggles, Por Favor!


Some more news coming from the New York Toy Fair. This time it is not Sesame related (as we reported earlier this week), nor is it about The Muppets - this time it is Fraggle Rock!

Sababa Toys has created some excellent Fraggle products in the past, and this year they plan to do it again. Sababa plans to create some more dolls of Fraggles - Mokey and Uncle Traveling Matt plush dolls are getting ready to ship (to go with the already existing Gobo, Wembly, Boober, and Red plushes Sababa created). They also have created a new two-pack of "Beanie-baby" type Fraggles coming that will include a bonus DVD with one Fraggle Rock episode.

But one of the more unique and exciting Fraggle products is a Fraggle Rock UNO game. The game, which is a variant of the classic card game UNO, features Fraggle fun on every card! The set comes in a special collectors tin, and a full deck of specialty Fraggle UNO cards. The Fraggle Rock version even features a new special "Travel" card which is new to the UNO game-play experience. There is no set release date for the UNO game announced, but it is coming, probally this spring/summer sources say.

There are also a rumor buzzing around the Sababa booth of a Fraggle Rock DVD Box Set coming real soon (like this spring), but still no official confirmation of these claims. We'll keep you posted on this one. But it is great to see the Fraggles coming back into the spot light on some great products this year.

Gelfling,
I sent another email to HIT Entertainment concerning the DVD Season Box Sets. I'll let you know if I hear anything from them.
