Largest UFO Catcher

For a recent project by Toyota to promote their car called the Ractis, they built a giant UFO Catcher. The "claw" grabber was shaped like an actual Ractis. If you were lucky enough to be there in October 2011 you could have a chance to see the giant claw machine in action and watch families who tried to win a giant teddy bear. At the end of this hub is a video if you want to see more or go to link: http://youtu.be/ZMt8ek3-FcA

If you missed it in real life...you can play the virtual version: a free demo game they put online called RACTIS UFO CATCHER.

Here's some tips on how to play.

I've been tracking down free claw machine games on the web for years and the Ractis UFO Catcher demo is short but its definitely fun to play. It has cute graphics, really fun music and I just wish I had been there to play the giant game in real life. This game is a fun way to save your quarters and still enjoy the thrill of the claw game. You should check out the game demo if you're a fan of
