A few WowWee employees were lucky enough to be on the set of LMFAO’s “Sorry for Party Rocking” video earlier this month. Why were they there? Because Foam Fighters, one of the titles in our new AppGear line of app toys, had a small role in the intro. It was a crazy scene, but we managed to snap some photos and take some video of our own during the LMFAO crew’s downtime.

Laptopmag.com has published the first video of AppGear at Toy Fair 2012 in New York City.

Here’s what they’re saying about our new product line that merges collectible toys and app games:

“WowWee’s AppGear is looking to make a name for itself in the appcessory games category, and it certainly looks like the company is off to a good start. AppGear took home Toy Fair 2012′s Best New App Toy award, and its various games use augmented reality and physical toys to create a unique gameplay experience.”
