NEW YORK, NY – September 15, 2006 – Packed with this year’s must-have tween electronics, the national Tiger Electronics Totally Tech Tour (T3) kicked off today at New York City’s South Street Seaport with the debut of the MASSIVELY MINI Media Player, a palm-size, portable and affordable digital multimedia player that allows tweens to listen to music, watch video and view photos anytime, anywhere.

T3 is sponsored by Tiger Electronics, a division of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS), which has earned a reputation over the years for identifying and bringing to market some of the hottest tech toys and lifestyle products for tweens.
“Technology is intuitive to today’s kids and they are accustomed to a variety of formats, including digital, for enjoying their favorite entertainment wherever they are,” said Sharon John, general manager, Tiger Electronics. “Our products put tweens’ favorite entertainment right in their hands whenever they want and wherever they go, for a price they can afford. We’re really excited about T3 because it will allow thousands of tweens to interact with our innovative line of electronic lifestyle products made just for them!”
“In today’s world, the definition of a ‘toy’ has evolved to include a wide range of lifestyle electronics,” says toy and children’s lifestyle industry expert Chris Byrne also known as The Toy Guy®. “Technology has erased the barriers between what is ‘adult’ and what is ‘for young people.’ Growing up in today’s technological world, tweens’ and teens’ facility with computers, gadgets and tech gear is a given. Hasbro inherently understands this and, through its Tiger line, has consistently delivered relevant products that provide entertainment and an exceptional price/value relationship.”
