(54)ASSEMBLY WITH OBJECT IN HOUSING AND MECHANISM TO OPEN HOUSING


(57) In an aspect, a toy assembly (10) is provided, and includes a housing (12), an inner object (14), at least one sensor and a controller (28). The inner object (14) is positioned inside the housing (12) and includes a breakout mechanism (22) that is operable to break the housing (12) to expose the inner object (14). The at least one sensor detects interaction with a user. The controller (28) is configured to determine whether a selected condition has been met based on at least one interaction with the user, and to operate the breakout mechanism (22) to break the housing (12) to expose the inner object (14) if the condition is met. Optionally, the condition is met based upon having a selected number of interactions with the user.
