Regal Elite to Showcase Glove Force Vehicles and Prehistoric 3-D Remote Activated Creatures at 2012 TOY FAIR®

Dinosaurs, Helicopters and Race Cars...OH MY!

PLAIN CITY, Ohio, Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a Force Flyer!

The air space within the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center will buzz with excitement when Regal Elite's Glove Force Technology Force Flyer line takes to the skies at the American International TOY FAIR® in New York City.

Making their fourth appearance at the world's largest international trade show for the toy industry, Regal Elite will unveil Force Flyers, their new, highly unique line of remote controlled-aircraft. But these creations are far from your run-of-the-mill flying helicopters. Operated via Glove Force Technology (GFT), the Force Flyer is patented by former NASA engineers and unique to Regal Elite, offering multi-dimensional flight through a motion controlled glove.

"Force flyers were inspired by the desire to take the Wii generation offline and bring them back to the physical world of play," said Regal Elite's vice president Jeff Hartman. "When they experience this product in action, show visitors will see that moving a physical object with the mere twist of the wrist remains just as magical as an image on a video screen ... perhaps even more so."

With the living room now a personal launch pad, Force Flyers remote-controlled helicopters arrive to dominate the skies. GFT aptly describes the hand-powered glove-like remote control that operates the company's life-like toys, allowing the controller full 3-D flight control. The four-channel advantage allows the helicopters to fly up, down, left and right, spin on its axis and laterally hover left and right. Super stable gyro-controlled flight mechanisms make the craft easy to manipulate in any direction. Safe for indoor flight use, Force Flyers also contain LED lights and a USB charger.

If earth bound vehicles are more to one's liking, Regal Elite will also showcase Force Racers, the company's GFT- controlled line of race cars and a motorcycles for the NASCAR or motocross wannabe in every child.

Additionally, Regal Elite will showcase their most recent line of Robotime products. The only thing more exciting than building your own dinosaur is watching one come to life. Selected Toy of the Year in both 2010 and 2011 by Creative Child Magazine, Regal Elite's Robotime Dinosaur is a 3-D wooden puzzle that comes to life when constructed. Once excavated from their containers, T-Rex, Stegosaurus, Apatosaurus and Triceratops can turn a playroom into a real-life Jurassic Park. Robotime toys can be assembled without glue or tools making children's paleontology easier than ever. Using the remote control, children become masters of their prehistoric pets. In "demo" mode, dino is motion-activated, warding off intruders with a terrifying roar. In "free range" mode, the creature will roar, snap and move freely around its habitat. If the Cenozoic era is more to your liking, Robotime puzzles can also be found in sabre tooth tiger and woolly mammoth models for Ice Age time travel.

Through Force Flyers and Robotime, Regal Elite continues the legacy they established back in 2010. "Two years ago, we introduced Howlers and Roffle Mates, two lines of interactive stuffed animals that weave and bob, sing and roll on the floor," said Hartman. "The Roffles were so popular when they launched, that Jay Leno introduced them on his Christmas product show."

Can remote controlled helicopters and roaring giant dinosaur puzzles be far behind? Stay tuned!
