If you have never seen an enthusiastic pile of junk before, then it is time you met the TinkaSaurus.
This guy is made from a plastic bag, egg carton, butter and cream cheese containers, a toilet roll, plastic teaspoons and forks, lids, buttons, candy wrappers, a plastic coat hanger, tape, glue and paint – and looks pretty darn happy about it.
He was put together to be one of the new activity stars in Tinkatolli, which like the TinkaBot, means that he will be appearing regularly mid-game for the kids to move and dance along with, ensuring that is fun to get physically active while playing online.
When kids play on Tinkatolli, it is important to us that they are not just sitting still in front of the computer. So they are encouraged to move and receive “move points” for their efforts, helping them progress in the online gameplay.
TinkaSaurus’s job is also to inspire kids to create more TinkaSaurs, as well as just generally getting people excited about what can be made from everyday trash.
I am rubbish hear me ROAR!
