HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WOWWEE 2019 LINE INCLUDE:
Pixie Belles are cute creatures that bring you love, light, and LOTS of fun movements. Empowering a true heart-to-heart connection, you and your Pixie Belles will be inseparable! Bond with your Belles - they let you know their mood based on the color of their horn - or have a dance party - with 6 different dances your Pixie Belles will never miss a beat! To activate spin time, talk out loud or clap your hands and watch your Belles spin on demand. They react to touch, motion, and sound, and include unique interchangeable tails that double as bracelets, keychains, and scrunchies, so you can bring a part of them with you wherever you go!

UNTAMED® Legends Dragon
The UNTAMED Legends Dragon is the newest, biggest and baddest species from the UNTAMED world. This intelligent creature scares off anything in its way, with its large, wide-spanning motorized wings. With an ability to be aware of itself in space, its wings flap when you hold and guide it through the air, and spring open when launched forward to attack. This Dragon reacts to touch and motion, and expresses how it feels through sound and light; you’ll hear its ferocious growls, screeches, and roars, and see its LED mood light change color on its chest depending on how you play. Time to get fired up; it’s going to be legendary!
