NETCONG, N.J., June 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Breaking Toys and Fearless Toys has officially broken the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the longest-running mechanical spinning top, with a non-stop total of 27 hours, 9 minutes and 24 seconds. The previous GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holder achieved a time of 24 hours, 35 minutes and 15 seconds; LIMBO broke that record by more than two hours. As part of the “over-the-top” record, Fearless Toys launched its LIMBO Kickstarter today to bring the world’s longest-mechanical spinning top to the masses. The campaign runs until September 19, 2018.

“It sounds crazy but there’s something about watching a top spin that creates a mini-mental getaway,” said Yosi Ganot, CEO of Fearless Toys. “LIMBO is mesmerizing and calming, while also a technological fete with its accelerometer and hidden gyro. It’s the perfect escape when you can’t take a yoga break in the middle of a meeting.”

ABOUT LIMBO:
LIMBO is Fearless Toys’ smart, internal-powered electric-spinning top. It is being produced and manufactured by Breaking Toys, the toy arm of the award-winning tabletop manufacturer and producer, Breaking Games.

How It Works: LIMBO spins for more than four hours at a time via a smart, self-balancing electric gyro. It utilizes a PID algorithm, a silent motor and the most advanced battery of its kind. The external top is made of sturdy aluminum or titanium while the newest autonomous technology allows the top to not only spin but also spin on many different kinds of surfaces. The motor of this self-perpetuating top regulates power based on surface friction. In fact, the technology is so highly proficient that it automatically corrects LIMBO’s spin.

Estimated Launch and Pricing: LIMBO’s Kickstarter runs until September 19, 2018. Its goal is to raise $40,000 for a November 2018 launch (just in time for the holidays) with an MSRP of $79.00. Kickstarter backers will get 20-30 percent off, starting at $49.00, and can choose between two materials – titanium or aluminum. Both models will be available in multiple colors: Titanium in original and Aluminum in original, black matte and black shiny.

“I launched Breaking Games in 2015 at Toy Fair and in just a few short years, our award-winning games could be found all over the world,” said Shari Spiro, CEO and President of Breaking Games and Breaking Toys. “When I saw LIMBO spinning for the first time, it immediately reduced my stress and ignited a feeling of relaxation and calm. I have so much faith in it that I launched a Breaking Games toy division – that’s how strongly I think today’s society, where so much is in limbo, needs a toy like LIMBO.”

Breaking Toys will distribute LIMBO worldwide.
