Ugobe Delays PLEO Again

Ugobe Delays PLEO Again
 
 

Two days ago, we reported that Ugobe will announce pre-order details for their dino baby robot tomorrow. Now apparently they changed plans and sent out an email yesterday announcing that PLEO is delayed until Summer.

If I hear Summer it translates immediately into next holiday shopping season. No toy like that should be released in Summer. You need the TMX Elmo effect or forget about it. Mattel introduced TMX Elmo end of September 2006.

The reasons for the delay are improvements that Ugobe learned from beta testing the PLEO with consumers. Sound is getting improved; another sensor is added under the chin and lots of tiny cosmetic things are supposed to be tweaked.

Wild prediction: PLEO will evolve into Elmo, when Mattel is buying Ugobe and will release Tickle Me Life-form Elmo (T.M.L. Elmo) this holiday season.
Apparently pre-order will start in Spring. The pricing quoted when Ugobe announced the PLEO of $199 will not hold. At the Toy Fair in Germany the quoted price was already 400 Euros.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
