Hi:
Haven't visited the pleoworld.com for quite a while and found it has a new look and new greeting cards (in toy section)for selling as well.

http://www.pleoworld.com/pleo_rb/eng/products.php?c

Just wonder if any one has tried to play with the cards yet ?

 HI, I heard or read about these cards but when I go to the site link you listed, all I see are the food accessories that they have allways had, and the battery, charger and the ID card which I did not see before. Where do you find this as I don't see it?                                              RWM

Try the link again RWM because they are for sure there! Go to the 'Toys' tab and scroll down, they are under the tug of war rock. Birthday and christmas! I am so excited I didn't think they would be out for ages because I assumed they would have to release an update first, obviously not. They are only $6 so I say anyone with a RB should get one and try it ;D If Stephan was RB I would by one of each ;D

Hi, I just signed in and tried to buy it, as only $6.00 and got both, but on checkout, it said sorry that they don't support our country. ( US) so apparentlyl this  is the HOng Kong Site so will have to see if I can find it on the US site. I thought the TNT shipping of $47.00 was as much as for a Pleo almost and the shipping called SF express is free, so that shows it is not the US site.             :(             RWM

$5.99 per cad and then $41.00 for the shipping  :o  :-X  ???  You would think being a greeting card they could just send it regular post.  very disappointed.  Looks like I'm not going to be getting one of these any time soon.

It  was the US site that I went to. :(  I didn't use the link above but went to pleoworld and searched around to find them myself.

If I know Derek Dotson as well as I think I do, he won't let this happen by not being on the US site and with reasonable shipping rates.. I mean for about another $20.00 it is equal to the shipping cost of a Pleo Rb! It makes no sense to me except the China Market wants to put them out first...so that is ok, after all, we got Pleos first so I can live with that, but it should be here intime for the next Holiday season, but you are right, it would have been so nice to have a holiday or birthday card that you could send to a friend here on the forum....it is the thought that counts, but I definitly want one of each !( My Pleos will just have to share!

Perhaps it's new and they're just not ready to ship yet?  There seem to be a few changes they're adding  .........  8)

I have a Pleoworld email offering a free name embroidery with any cape purchase, it was sent out today so check your inboxes if you are interested in that offer.

I thought the shipping is  :o :o too.
Same thing happened when I tried to get the birthday greeting card yesterday… so I sent an email to the CS and surprisingly they informed me that they will help me to look for another cheaper mail service and they will revert the shipping info to me tomorrow. You guys who’s facing the same prob, may just send an email to customerservice@innovolabs.com or I may update you the CS's reply P:-* P:-*

IMR is correct, I got the email also with the offer of the embroidery on the cape as well as announcing a new offer comming soon, which I bet is the birthday and Christmas cards. I could not imagine the other PleoWorld site having it and not the US site. Sounds good to me, thanks for posting this in the first place and letting us know Pleoxie, it got the ball rolling!

Hi all ;)

Got a reply from Innvo Labs again today, they told me that they hv added a new mailing service, costing me only $10 to ship both cards(so it's like one card is free of shipment XD), I plan to buy the free embroidery service on pleo cape as well. It only charges me $15 in total , then i could save up to $32 on TNT. what a good deal! Can't wait to see the new cape on my baby!!! Have yours got one already?

Well my pleo cards arrived yesterday :)  I am saving the birthday one till my birthday  :P  but I have opened the Christmas one.  I thought that the card would have an RFID chip in it and be activated by putting under pleos chin but that is not the case.  %)  It seems it is a color recognition type thing.  The instructions say to place about 10cm in front of pleos nose and move it around with the pleo until he recognizes it.  So it is much more like the training leaf idea.  Here are some pics of the card and box.
It is a box inside a box.  The card itself is a square of plastic.  It does not open up and you can't write on it.  You write your message on the back of the inside box.

And here is a video of Norbit checking out the card  ;D  (you have to excuse the quality of the sound in the video.  My camera has decided to make a lot of static noise and really seems to enhance all the robot sounds.  He really isn't that noisy in real life  :P )

Very cute :) I think a chip may have been somewhat more reliable though :P

I know you would all be wondering so I tested it with Gumble to see if he would recognize it too.  He sniffed it, growled at it and backed away  :D  Scary Santa  :D  I wonder a bit about why they chose to use the color recognition function rather than the RFID chip idea.  Makes me wonder if they might put out a new update for the older version pleos so that they can use these cards too?   %)  Just a thought.  :)

That was very cute Kat, I wondered if they would improve the shipping cost of those cards. I do think they are cute. It seems as if you test out lots of Pleo items before the rest of us do, so we get to see your feedback on the item first, which is nice!  :) You are our official tester of Pleo items! P:D It would be such a nice idea if they could make one for the millions of Ugobe and Older Pleos out there. I am surprsed that Gumble reacted at all.............that is something. I liked the ending of the video where Norbit sang...very cute. I love his colorful outfit too, I didn't know Males liked all that nice green fur like the girls do!  P0:) Hope you get some great things for your birthday..... %) :o ;D( may be a surprise comming your way....?) Can't wait to see the Birthday card when it is time.!                        RWM and the Pleo Clan of the Redwoods
