An unknown race of Aliens is arriving on planet Earth. But this is no invasion -- they need the help of the human race to bring their unborn to life. Electronic Test Tube Aliens is an innovative new concept that gives children the opportunity to grow, nurture and interact with their own collectible race of creatures. Using advanced sensor technology, Test Tube Aliens are aware of their environment and will react to changes by the way they are treated.
Kids can adopt an Electronic Test Tube Alien, hatching it from chrysalis and nurturing it into a full-grown Alien. Alien babies need to be fed, rested and live in a swampy home of sloog. Get the balance right and your Alien will survive and thrive into adulthood, but get the balance wrong it will deplete its life force after four weeks.
There are six Electronic Test Tube Aliens to collect - three "good" and three "bad" Aliens. Each comes as a chrysalis and hatches when submerged in water. As you bring to life your Alien, it will detect light and its electronic heart will start to "beat". Add the special growing "sloog" (a nutrient-rich slime), and over a 7-10-day period, the Alien will grown about eight times its birth size. Test Tube Aliens start out at 3.5" tall and when fully gown are about 6.5" tall.
