4Kids Entertainment and Playmates Toys will be presenting the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Training Event on Saturday, October 25, 2003 at Wal-Mart stores across the U.S., giving kids the opportunity to role-play one of their favorite heroes. Kids will be able to train with motion-activated toys that resemble Leonardo's sword, Michelangelo's nunchaku, Donatello's bo staff or Raphael's sai. Upon completing their training, students will be declared an "official" Ninja Warrior and the first 250 participants at each store will receive a certificate proclaiming them a member of Team Green.
Jill Will, svp of marketing for Playmates Toys, said, "We are delighted to join Wal-Mart and 4Kids Entertainment to launch this exciting one-day promotional event supporting our TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES line. This event is certain to be a big hit with kids."
