2008 U.B. Funkeys Review

2008 U.B. Funkeys Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Nov 24, 2008
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

What exactly are U.B. Funkeys? Check out Kidzworld's review of these cute, collectible virtual friends.

What exactly are U.B. Funkeys? Well, it’s a series of collectible figurines that, when connected to your computer through a USB port, unlock an online world filled with games and interactive activities.

Funkeys, made by Mattel, can be bought as a starter-up kit that includes a USB reader, a larger six (6) inch Funkey that connects to your computer using the USB cable and has a special docking platform on its back, and two regular three (3) inch Funkeys. All you have to do is place the smaller, three inch Funkeys onto the larger Funkey’s back to read their codes and access new area of the Funkey’s online world, which is called Terrapina, and is a virtual theme park made up of different towns, each with their own interactive stations, secret clubs, virtual shops and fun video games you can play to collect coins that you can use to buy things for your very own Terrapina home (called a “crib”). But, to enter restricted areas of Terrapina, you’ll need to collect more Funkeys that have access to those areas. There are 42 different Funkey designs and each one gives you access to a different part of the Funkey world.
