Toy Fair 2010 a Resounding Success for Uncle Skunkle Toys

Rapid 4® More Named a Top Pick by TDmonthly Magazine's Toy Fair Retailer Panel; Gaunt-O-Lot(C) Recognized as One of TDmonthly's "Products of the Day"

BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwire - February 22, 2010) - Uncle Skunkle Toys, Inc. (UST), a developer of games that not only look good in your living room, but also bring fun and enjoyment to the entire family, is pleased to announce that its Rapid 4® More and Gaunt-O-Lot© games were recognized by TDmonthly Magazine during the Toy Industry Association's (TIA) Toy Fair '10, held last week in New York City.

TDmonthly Magazine's first-ever expert panel of specialty toy-story owners at Toy Fair chose Rapid 4 More as one of its "top picks" on Sunday, Feb. 14. Rapid 4 More is a next-generation game that enables more players to enjoy the game together, and puts a whole new dimension to connection games by adding a second board and playing tray. Player engagement reaches a whole new level when players must choose to block their opponents at the request of other players, establish a play of their own, or make a nothing move so that others cannot win.

On Wednesday, Feb. 17, TDmonthly Magazine recognized Gaunt-O-Lot as one of its "Products of the Day." Introduced this year at Toy Fair '10, Gaunt-O-Lot is a fast-paced Build 'em up - Knock 'em down game that harkens back to the medieval times, where battle was about honor and chivalry. Players take turns defending their castles while others attempt to knock their opponent's wrecking ball off the track. This action-packed game allows players to answer one question -- are they builders or destroyers?

"We are very pleased at the outcome of this year's Toy Fair, and honored that TDmonthly and its retail panel have recognized Rapid 4 More and Gaunt-O-Lot among their top products featured at the show," said David Schreiber, President, Uncle Skunkle Toys, Inc. "Uncle Skunkle Toys has worked very hard over the years to build a solid reputation as a developer of award-winning, socially responsible board games that bring fun, excitement and intrigue to any family game night, and our success at Toy Fair further validates these efforts."

At Toy Fair '10, Uncle Skunkle Toys also introduced Drawer Dropper, a fast-action discard game where Jack Pot! could mean trouble! This fast-paced, turn-style game combines strategy, luck and a good memory to create endless chaotic fun.
