Wild Planet to Release Woody’s Run-Around Roundup RFID Educational Game in May

Woody’s Run-Around Roundup, featuring the gang from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story, follows Wild Planet’s successful listen-think-move format and promotes physical and mental exercise.  It can be played indoors or out, solo or in teams, and does not require the use of a computer or television.

Woody (atop his horse Bullseye) is the electronic hand-held tagger in the game and his Toy Story co-stars Buzz Lightyear, Jesse, Hamm and Rex are targets.  Players listen for Woody to call out clues about different characters, then run to and tag the corresponding targets.
