Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

1 large funkey;2 additional funkeys;1 Software pack

Product Description

If someone were to come up to those of us deep underground in the testing lab here at gadgetshop HQ and invite us to get funky, we may well have to take a while to consider our decision. But when the offer comes attached to these delightful little PC-connectable collectibles, the decision pretty much makes itself. UBFunkeys are a set of 24 highly collectible (and highly addictive) characters that build into a complete population, with three members of 8 tribes to collect. And, although it would be fine and dandy if that was all to report, there's so much more besides. For, on connecting a UBFunkey to its hub, and the hub to your PC, each UBFunkey opens-up a whole immersive universe to discover and explore. But Funkeytown needs your assistance if it's to avoid a descent into chaos. Your task is to re-establish order and decency by completing tasks, avoiding nasties and collecting crystals right across the virtual town. But here's the trick. The more you collect, the more you can explore, particularly if you've got one of the rarer UBFunkeys out there, which grant you access to some rather fine and exclusive content by unlocking important new zones. Truly spiffing. And, dare I say it, truly funky.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic toy! 4 Mar 2009
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The kids (6 and 9yr old boys) told me they HAD to have this, and gave me their Christmas money, so what could I say?. I am very impressed...it is so clever. It gives you access to a virtual Funkey world where you can play all sorts of games and create your own home....but keep away from the bad guys or they steal your money. Each Funkey allows access to different parts of the world, so it does become a bit of a money drain, but very impressed with the technology of it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Product support is appalling 13 Sep 2009
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
My children love the game, but support is appalling when something goes wrong, which often does. Installation can be very difficult and re-installation a nightmare. Searching "UB Funkeys problems" returns lots of parents expressing frustration on many sites/blogs etc except sites owner my Mattel/Radica family of companies.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointed with the characters 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase
My daughter was disappointed with the characters as she had hoped it would be the ones on the picture and she now has 3 of the starter packs with the same characters.
