Tosy, a Vietnamese company with marketing budget the size of the GDP of a small country, managed to get the boy wonder to promote their dancing humanoid toy robot / mp3 player .

I saw them at the Nuremberg toy fair couple of years ago with a huge ping-pong playing mechatronics humanoid. They had a big budget stand populated by many company employees and they also showed a small KHR1 like plastic bracketted unnamed humanoid. and some unrelated flying toys.

They've been at a few of the IREX 2007 & 2009 shows with huge booth space, but never had the ping pong humanoid operating for more than a minute or two at a time. They didn't show up for IREX 2011.

Their small robots were prototypes with planned release dates six months or so in the future. As far as I can tell the robots didn't make it to market yet. The only commercial TOSY product I'm aware of is their toy flying saucer that was selected by Good Housekeeping magazine as one of the best toys of 2011.
