A good spot indeed!
Great to hear that they're finding ways of keeping the platform fresh
Yes, sadly I just spent another £70 on assorted tails (and they are pretty cheap individually).
Looks like they have a whole ecosystem now - but the name here is ColourStar instead of ColourTail
(I saw this in their online shop) - but I'm finding it hard to get motivated with this, I did give quite a few codebugs

It looks like the CodeBug will soon be sporting an assortment of glowing accessories, ColourTails are coming soon.
By the look of it we have a 5V multicolour LED with a single wire communication bus, possibly WS2811 or WS2812 based?
Credit for spotting this should go to MikeR (as usual).
