KidzPLAY new gaming accessories for kids

kidzplay

KidzPLAY is set to shake the gaming world up this Christmas as it launches with an innovative new range of gaming accessories for kids age six and upwards.  It’s the brand behind some new PlayStation 3 gaming accessories and is designed especially for small hands. It is the official kids gaming accessories partner for PS3.

The controllers have also been injected with a special microbial additive which protects against a number of harmful bacteria including MRSA and E-coli. This should strike a chord with parents. They are actually the first gaming controllers made to contain this germ fighting additive.

The new controllers are quite unique as they have been ergonomically designed with small hands in mind. To ensure they got the design just right, Sony did extensive research which included rigorous focus group testing where adults played with giant controllers to decipher where the pressure points are in gaming controllers that are too large for small hands.

The Wireless Adventure Game Pad will head up the launch of the new KidzPLAY range, and is fully compatible with the numerous Playstation 3 games currently on the market and suitable for families.

KidzPLAY will be available from Game, Very, Littlewoods, Amazon and other gaming and toy retailers from October 2013.

Price  – The Wireless Adventure Game Pad retails at £29.99
