Hasbro: Finding Nemo


When Walt Disney Pictures presents the underwater adventure FINDING NEMO, a Pixar Animation Studios Film, on May 30, 2003, Hasbro will celebrate the magical new fish tale with a full line of FINDING NEMO plush, play sets, figures, games, puzzles, bath toys and candy novelties. The Hasbro items will swim into stores just in time for the theatrical release to help recreate the fantastic scenes of FINDING NEMO.

FINDING NEMO follows the comedic and eventful journeys of two fish -- MARLIN and his son NEMO -- who become separated in the Great Barrier Reef when NEMO is unexpectedly taken far from home and thrust into a fish tank in a dentist's office overlooking Sydney Harbor. Buoyed by the companionship of a friendly-but-forgetful fish named DORY, the overly cautious father embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic journey to rescue his son -- who hatches a few daring plans of his own to return safely home.

Hasbro's FINDING NEMO line is sure to be a "splash" hit. Following are highlights of the line, which is recommended for ages 3 and up:


NITE BRITE NEMO (Approximate retail price: $29.99) This 16-inch plush Disney/Pixar's NEMO is not only a cute, cuddly and adorable fish that helps kids feel safe at night, but he does so with incredible voice recognition interactive play. "Hi, I'm NEMO," he responds when kids first squeeze his lucky fin, NEMO will also respond to kids when they speak three phrases: Say to NEMO ... "row, row, row your boat," and NEMO giggles and hums a little song; Say to NEMO "I love you Nemo", and he reacts with a variety of phrases like "I love you too", or "I'm a fish out of water without you!"; even more heart-warming, tell NEMO "nite nite," and NEMO's eyes light up, he yawns and begins to snore himself to sleep as he responds, "Nite nite, sleep tight, don't let the sharks bite," while his eyes slowly fade. Requires 3 "AA" batteries, included. Recommended for ages 3 & up.
