While the company is not exactly known for making licensed video game accessories, Nyko Technologies is currently working on various gaming items inspired by the Nick Junior television show 'Yo-Gabba-Gabba'.
Nyko exhibited a pair of 'Yo-Gabba-Gabba' items -- both for the Nintendo DS family of handheld gaming systems -- and each featured a different character from the show.
The furry green monster Brobee is being made into a fanny-pack designed to hold any DS as large as a DSi XL. Of course, it could technically hold anything up to that size including smartphones or a deck of playing cards. The pack has a couple of pockets and a screen cleaning cloth featuring Brobee himself.
The red cyclops Muno is the featured character on Nyko's other shown 'Yo-Gabba-Gabba' item. The Muno Time is an AM/FM alarm clock/radio and docking station. In addition to being able to charge a DS, the device also has 'Yo-Gabba-Gabba' character buttons with three songs each from the show. If using the alarm, users can choose to wake up with either the radio or a random song from the kids show -- meaning that there's a chance you or your child could wake up to a chorus of "Don't bite your friends".
These items and others in Nyko's 'Yo-Gabba-Gabba' lineup are expected to come out over the course of the year.
