We had an absolute blast working with creative studio School of Humans on our Light Strike Arena series.

Here’s a snippet from their post on the exciting adventure with Light Strike:

“Check out our awesome new animated and interactive web series, Light Strike Arena, which we created around the newly-launched Light Strike Assault Strikers by WowWee. This is a multifaceted web adventure. Since the video is interactive, viewers are able to choose the direction of the story at the end of each segment. Plus, we’ve also created an entire transmedia experience around the story, which will be launching over the next couple of weeks. So keep following the story as it unfolds on Facebook.”

Don’t forget to check out the Light Strike Arena Vault, where you’ll find Connor’s diary entries, Magnificent’s voice portal and much, much more!

When kids are given Paper Jamz Drums and Guitars for Christmas, the only logical thing to expect is a full-blown house party with rockstars.

We found these two amazing videos that perfectly captured that fun spirit.

This particular rock show was filmed around the Christmas tree — with some pretty well-dressed kids at that.

This video features the emergence of Theo and Noah onto the rock scene. Well done boys!

Things get crazy around the 2 minute mark.

After filling up on scrumptious holiday meals, a great way to transform that energy into something totally awesome is to grab a few friends or family members and crank out an impromptu jam session.

That’s exactly what Sydney, Brandon and Chris did for their rendition of ‘Forget You’ by Cee Lo Green.

Each person downloaded the same song on to their Paper Jamz Pro instrument and started the song at the same time in order to be in sync.

Check it out and enjoy!
