UFO Catcher toys selling online, attracting older fan base

SINGAPORE: The "UFO Catcher" game is no alien to any arcade outlet, and recently it is not just the youngsters trying their luck at getting a toy.

On a normal day, the toy catcher stations attract students and executives. But lately, even retirees have been dropping by the machines.

Lam Yi Heng, owner, Prize Stage said: "Based on a week, they will probably come about four to five times. And they will come usually after night and play till we close. During the holidays, more teenagers will appear during the afternoon time."

With 500 types of soft toys for the picking at a dollar for each attempt, it is not hard to get addicted.

25-year-old Zhang Chee Chong got into the craze a year ago - spending up to S$400 weekly and playing till the arcade closes.

"The very first toy I got - I got it at a dollar. So I thought it was so easy. So I started to catch more and more, then it started to grow - the collection. And after that, my room got stuffed with a lot of toys," said Mr Zhang.

He is now selling them on a blog. There are over 40 such websites dealing in the UFO Catcher toys, which can't be found in retail stores. They are selling for between S$15 and S$60, depending on the item's rarity.
