A complete new concept for remote controlled toys.Coplay ® will be to the toy industry what Intel ® is to the computer industry ;-) What is Coplay?
Traditional remote controlled toys can’t easily be used in cooperative playing.They have few control features.There is no such thing as compatibility! RC toys today:
The Coplay ® system allows up to 16 remote control handsets to be operated in the same area – on the same radio frequency! No changing of crystals or setting of addresses,...just turn it on and Coplay! The Coplay ® RC Concept:
Coplay® toys and -handsets are categorized into classes, according to type of toy. Within a class, any handset can be connected to any toy – by simply pressing a button! You don’t have to buy more than one handset! Dynamic connection:

1Coplay® handsets will not interfere with each other, regardless of class. 2Within a class, any handset can control any toy. Two levels of compatibility:
The Coplay® system will cover present- and future control needs, as new classes can be defined when new needs arises. For instance, the class XO-2500 will cover full proportional steering and –speed, ignition, gear, brakes, lights and sounds, - plus control of auxillary motors for excavation arms etc. Full flexibility:
A wealth of sophisticated, feature-packed, compatible toys. They can buy one handset – and connect it to any toy. They can play together! Kids just won’t accept incompatible systems! What’s in it for the kids?
