These bobble headed monsters, set to release in March of this year, will feature the same nano technology, and customizable environments that HEXBUG boasts, but will also integrate the online community, and cute collectable Moshlings that makes Moshi Monsters so popular.
With an estimated 50 million users worldwide, Moshi Monsters is a kid safe (ages 6-12) online community, where users can adopt and customize one of six Moshlings, they can then solve puzzles and play games to earn the community’s currency; Rox, as they navigate Monstro City. Users are also allowed limited and filtered interaction with other users. The basic version is free, with the option to purchase a membership which offers additional bonuses, as usual.
Bobble Bots will have its own similar site, and their habitats will resemble those found in Monstro City – allowing users of the site some familiarity. Each Bobble Bot will also come with a code to unlock extra fun goodies on the website, ensuring interest in online play remains.
As of right now the Bobble Bots website is void of information (their Facebook page is the same, but still worth following to get updates when they happen) but they do offer an option to sign up for their newsletter and with launch just a few short months away, information is bound to start trickling down soon.
I, personally, can’t wait to check these out when they release!
