Techno Source Sudoku Named To Toy Wishes Holiday 2006 Still Sizzling List
Six Other Techno Source Products Honored As Holiday Favorites
New York, NY – October 4, 2006 – Techno Source, a leader in electronic toys and games, announced that its Sudoku handheld game has been chosen by Toy Wishes Magazine as a Toy Wishes Holiday 2006 Still Sizzling item. The Still Sizzling honorees were introduced during the fifth annual Toy Wishes Holiday Preview at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. Hosted by Toy Wishes Magazine, the event is recognized as the ‘official’ family entertainment industry kick-off to the holiday shopping season.
Selected by the Toy Wishes editorial board, items on the Still Sizzling list are toys that were featured in the Spring issue of Toy Wishes that are still hot with kids and as great for the holiday season as they were earlier this year.
“The Still Sizzling items were so hot earlier this year that they’ve barely cooled off,” said Jim Silver, editor-in-chief of Toy Wishes. “These products are sure to be on wish lists everywhere this season.”
Sudoku is the addictive daily logic puzzle that currently appears in leading newspapers across the nation. Techno Source’s handheld Sudoku games feature beginner and advanced modes, each with four difficulty levels, and a touch screen panel. Sudoku Mega Touch Screen, the next generation of Techno Source’s best-selling original handheld game, includes over two million puzzles – twice as many as the original – and an extra large screen with illumination for easy viewing. This version also offers users the ability to input puzzles from their favorite books and newspapers. For Sudoku gamers looking for a new challenge, Techno Source also is launching the new Circular Sudoku, a unique variation based on circular grids. Sudoku games from Techno Source retail for less than $20.
“We are excited that our Sudoku game has been named to the Toy Wishes Still Sizzling list,” said Eric Levin, EVP of Techno Source. “Sudoku puzzles have become a global phenomenon and this honor reinforces the fact that our electronic touch-screen Sudoku is THE ‘must have’ Sudoku product. If anyone on your holiday gift list is into Sudoku—this is the Sudoku gift that is sure to delight.”
