ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL - NAMCO Prize America has been enjoying an extremely successful first year. NAMCO's iconic Pac-Man character is still going strong and is now being introduced to a new generation with the success of the Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures TV series on Disney XD. Both the classic Pac-Man plush figures and the new Ghostly Adventures line-up of plush are filling up cranes and redemption counters across the country. "Our retail quality truly stands out among the other plush that is available. It's clear that the crane players are collecting all the characters because we've had so many customers request the plush assortments contain more ghosts characters," says Jim Wulfers, Sales Manager of Merchandise for NAMCO Prize America. "We listened to your feedback and have created a new Jumbo plush assortment that contains more ghosts," added Wulfers.

As NAMCO Prize America continues to work on new plush line-ups for 2014 and beyond, they are also creating new electronics and strengthening their NAM-GEAR brand. The new wireless NAM-GEAR Bluetooth headphones feature a touch-sensitive panel to adjust the volume or play/pause a song while a built-in microphone allows users to answer phone calls hands free. If your portable media device ever starts to run low on battery power, the people at NAMCO Prize America have an answer for that as well. They will unveil the new NAM-GEAR Power Bank at the upcoming Amusement Expo in Las Vegas. The NAM-GEAR Power Bank is a high capacity lipstick-sized portable charger that is extremely useful in situations where a wall outlet is not available to recharge a mobile device. Equipped with the latest micro-USB and lightening cable connections, the NAM-GEAR Power Bank is the perfect companion to keep your mobile device fully charged all day.

Last year NAMCO Prize America introduced their Pac-Man headphones and it quickly became their best selling item. This year they hope to top that with the introduction of the "Ghost Bluetooth Speakers." This exciting product is a 5" plush, Pac-Man Ghost character with a Bluetooth speaker tucked inside the hook and loop enclosure in the back. Users can easily sync the rechargeable speaker and clip the ghost on to a backpack or set it on a table and enjoy music anywhere, anytime. The beautiful packaging is perfect for displaying in any high end merchandiser or redemption center.

"We sincerely appreciate all of your support and we look forward to working with you as we continue to deliver a wide range of high quality, high profit products for the amusement market. We wish everybody a successful and prosperous 2014," stated Wulfers. You can see all these new products and more in the NAMCO booth #127 at Amusement Expo in Las Vegas on March 26-27.
