Xeno is a loveable baby monster who really interacts and plays with his owner. He has real emotions, eye expressions and movements that really bring him to life. Combine this with his extremely tactile unique 'skin' and the fact that he talks and he becomes more lifelike than you can imagine and is totally appealing to children. Xeno also plays games, talks to his friends, loves to dance and has a free app for additional play. Priced at £79.99 he has already been tipped as a top choice for Christmas by retailers such as Argos, The Entertainer and Hamleys.

Without a doubt Xeno was a big hit on the day, totally enthralling parents and children of all ages. Rhyan Palmer aged 11 commented: "It's a cool toy for all kids' age groups. I think it's a family toy rather than just for kids. It's really advanced unlike other toys. You can never get bored of it. You don't miss playing with a friend when you own a Xeno!" Rhyan is a junior reporter for the children's newspaper First News and was at the event with his mum Neeti, both in a professional and potential consumer capacity.

In addition to families and mummy bloggers, journalists and children's media researchers were also at the event. Nigel Clarke, Director of Content for ToyTesters.tv commented: "It was lovely to meet Xeno, he's very cool! Interactive toys are moving so fast, and it's fantastic to see all the new innovations. I know the ToyTesters.tv viewers are really excited about testing him out!" 

Xeno is distributed and manufactured by GP Flair, a Surrey based leading UK toy company. Holly Lackey, Marketing Manager, commented: "We were delighted to host a special launch party for Xeno. We already know from retailers that the potential of this unique toy is huge, but to see how the children reacted when they first met him was amazing. "
