Toy Story Alien Fishing Game

The Disney Toy Story Alien Grab game is for children ages 4 and up. The object of the game is to grab the little green men as it spins around. Based on the popular Toy Story movies.

UFO Balance Catcher

The Ultimate Claw Machine Gift? How about your very own UFO Balance Catcher. Introduced at the 2010 AOU Amusement Expo. Instead of a joystick, the UFO Balance Catcher uses a balance board, similar to a wii balance board, to move the claw. You can move the board in 8 directions, like a D pad. And if you are skilled enough to grab a prize, you still have to use the balance board to move the claw to the bin to drop your prize. What a fun workout if you can afford it.

I wish I could find one for $20! I 've seen where people bought a used game on ebay but it was still a lot of money. That's why I like to search the web to find virtual claw games that are free, see my collection of those games at https://sites.google.com/site/valerienowcom/ also have you heard about thesantaclaw.com? Its where you could play a real claw machine for free from your own computer, and if you grabbed a prize they would mail it to you, so I'm hoping they will bring it back again this Christmas. Or in some places you can rent a claw machine for a day, see http://hubpages.com/games-hobbies/Rent-a-Claw-Mach...
