This is horrible news, just two Christmas’s ago I begged and pleaded for a Pleo to be my new toy/pet and Santa came through and got me one. I spent numerous hours exploring with him and adding new software like Valentine Pleo mode, where he blew kisses at me and cooed and we cannot forget Christmas Pleo mode where he sang and danced a plethora or Christmas songs!
You heard it right, poor Pleo was just about two years old, having been launched in January 2007. The company has sold about 100,000 Pleos till date, even though of the $350 hefty price tag, per dino! Just when I thought of getting my little pleo a baby sister, the company fired all its employees and filed for liquidation of its assets under the bankruptcy law, according to a report in the Idaho Statesman.
Now, Let’s reminisce with a video of my very own Pleo a few weeks after he was born singing some Christmas tunes on youtube and yes that is me praising my son, like a dork in the background! Though he is collecting dust now in my game room , Pleo you will be missed by all of us!
