"We have been watching the momentum build for Battroborg ever since it debuted at Toy Fair in February," states Greg Kilrea, President and CEO of TOMY International. "Beginning in early summer, we've focused a considerable amount of our resources on getting the product into kids' hands and providing them with a chance to try Battroborg before it was available in stores. The brand awareness is really starting to build and now with the added international awards and recognition, Battroborg is poised to be one of this year's holiday must-haves, not only here in the US, but in markets around the world. It has been an exciting global launch for our organization."

With three different and fun competitive game modes, Battroborg invites kids ages six and up to settle the score at home this holiday season.
