The three debut games for 2017 from KD Games are:
Don't let your balloon bot pop in Balloon Bot Battle! Two players go head-to-head trying to pop the other player's balloon before theirs is popped. When the balloons are outfitted with the punching arms, kids can move the levers back and forth to punch their opponent's balloon. When one balloon pops, the game is over. Ages 8 and up. Two players. MSRP $19.99.
Farty Franny is an interactive game that's silly and suspenseful. The game comes with an adorable Franny the cow figurine that sits in the center of the spinner. Each player takes turns spinning the spinner and following the command on which they land. If they land on the tail icon, the player must lift Franny's tail – she might just moo, but she might fart, too! If she farts, the player takes a fly. The player with the least number of flies at the end wins. Ages 4 and up. Two to four players. 15 minute game play. 2 AA batteries included. MSRP $19.99.
Copy Coco features Coco the parrot. Coco will make animal noises, and players have to repeat the noises back to him. Using voice recognition technology, Coco will decide if he likes the animal impression or if the player needs to try again. Copy Coco also comes with a deck of animal cards that can be used to play a speed-based game where players must collect the correct cards as fast as they can when Coco makes an animal noise. Ages 4 and up. One to four players. 15 minute game play. 3 AA batteries included. MSRP $24.99
