Besides Star Wars merchandise UT now makes Doctor Who, Hello Kitty, Lalaloopsy, Sonic the Hedgehog, and many more titles.
UT has also sold in excess of 3 million of its In Your Pocket and Soundblaster keychains featuring universally recognizable sound phrases from popular movies and TV shows that transform an otherwise mundane item into an easily transportable talking mini-entertainment center.
