Critical Pooka Pets update for iTouch 4th Gen users

Fan X - Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks to everyone who came out and made Fan X such a fantastic event! We here at Pokey Toad were blown away by all the great comments and feedback everyone had–not to mention the awesome costumes and fancy footwork.  Pooka Pets and Zoodle Pad were both a hit, and we had so much fun with the Dance Offs on Thursday and Friday we had to shut things down to keep things safe from overcrowding (next…

Salt Lake Comic Con: Fan X is coming up fast at six days and counting. So why should you swing by the Pokey Toad Booth? Well, aside from picking up some free swag, did you know you’ll be able to design your own Pooka and take home a printed picture of it?  You’ll be able to do the same with ZoodlePad too, so come by, bring the kids, and have a blast making some art! And don’t forget to color up…

Check out our new look and more at Fan X!  We’ll be there with demos, freebies, and even a guest appearance from Obert Skye himself to promote one of our newest apps, the World of Obert Skye, which is currently in development. Fan X is April 17-19 this year at the Salt Palace Convention center in Salt Lake City, UT so with the event less than three weeks away we’ve been keeping busy. At the booth you’ll be able to play a demo of Pooka Pets, check out the progress on Obert Skye, and even do a bit of doodling at the ZoodlePad display.
We’ll have bookmarks, postcards, and a few lucky winners might even walk away with signed copies of some of Obert Skye’s books by entering the raffle on all three days.



Be sure to stop by and say hi while you’re there, and don’t forget to pick up some swag!
