Fortnite is an online video game developed by Epic Games and released in 2017. It is available in three distinct game mode versions that otherwise share the same general gameplay and game engine: Fortnite: Save the World, a cooperative shooter– survival game for up to four players to fight off zombie-like creatures and defend objects with fortifications they can build; Fortnite Battle Royale, a free-to-play battle royale game in which up to 100 players fight to be the last person standing; and Fortnite Creative, in which players are given complete freedom to create worlds and battle arenas. Save the World and Battle Royale were released in 2017 as early access titles, while Creative was released on December 6, 2018. Save the World is available only for Windows, macOS, [b] PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, while Battle Royale and Creative released for all those platforms, and also for Nintendo Switch, iOS, [b] and Android devices. [b] The game is expected to also launch with the release of the next-generation PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles.
While the Save the World and Creative versions have been successful for Epic Games, Fortnite Battle Royale in particular became a resounding success – drawing in more than 125 million players in less than a year, earning hundreds of millions of dollars per month, and becoming a cultural phenomenon.
LOL dolls are little baby dolls that come wrapped inside a surprise toy ball. Each ball has layers that contain stickers, secret messages, mix and match accessories–and finally–a doll . You don’t know which doll you are going to get until you get to the last layer. The doll on the ball is almost never the doll inside.
Enter L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls (the L.O.L is short for “Little Outrageous Littles”, in case you’re wondering), which are shaping up to be the breakout toy of 2017. They’re exciting children – and proving the bane of parents, with low stocks and rising second-hand prices suggesting the collectible toys are picking up where last year’s Hatchimals craze left off.
Lol Dolls, as they’re informally known, are three-inch tall figurines that come covered in seven layers of paper and wrapping. Children must delve through this extensive packaging to discover the surprise, small doll within.
The toys follow the “unboxing” trend that has seen thousands of videos uploaded to YouTube, in which children unpackage their toys to great delight.
PAW Patrol is a Canadian CGI–animated children’s television series created by Keith Chapman. It is produced by Spin Master Entertainment, with animation provided by Guru Studio. In Canada, the series is primarily broadcast on TVOKids, which first ran previews of the show in August 2013. The series premiered on Nickelodeon in the United States on August 12, 2013.
The series focuses on a young boy named Ryder who leads a crew of search and rescue dogs that call themselves the PAW Patrol. They work together on missions to protect the shoreside community of Adventure Bay. Each dog has a specific set of skills based on emergency services professions, such as a firefighter, a police officer, and an aviation pilot. They all reside in doghouses that transform into customized vehicles for their missions. They are also equipped with backpacks called “pup packs” that contain tools that relate to the pups’ jobs.
