EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The US election may be over, but the just-as-historic "Meelection" has begun within the world of MAGICMEEMEES™, available WORLDWIDE from Future of Play. In MeeMeeopolis' first-ever election, kids can vote for their favorite MagicMeeMees character! MagicMeeMees are fantastical, "magical" creatures that show you how they feel with their "Meemotions" and are loved by Republicans and Democrats alike. These non-partisan tech-lectables are "smart" figures that communicate with each other wirelessly, each with their own special, positive, and colorful personality that win over voters of all ages.
What makes the MagicMeeMees so spectacular is their built-in technology, which brings them to life with movement and emotion, and allows kids to interact with other MagicMeeMees, feed and nurture them with Yummees, and discover their whimsically-themed lands. Kids can collect and vote for any of the 24 Season 1 MagicMeeMees figures, feed their new friends up to 26 blind-packed Yummee foods, and create their own MeeMeeopolis' with the 8 vivid playsets that are based on whacky themes like the inside of a candy jar, a fruit bowl, and a holiday storage chest. And for a limited time, kids can go online to elect their favorite MagicMeeMee as they campaign to become MeeMeeopolis' "Chief MagicMaker."
"Adults in the US just participated in a big, serious election, and we wanted to bring some of the more positive aspects of voting to kids, as great toys are as much about captivating stories and imaginary worlds as they are about the innovative design," said Ricardo Abundis, General Manager of Future of Play. "We're going to enjoy revealing the candidates and platforms of 'The Pizza Party' and 'The Cupcake Party' to families this fall, and letting kids vote for who they think is the most Magical."
Polls will be open from November 8, 2016 through December 31st, 2016! Registering and voting is done online at vote.magicmeemees.com! Deals and prizes exclusive to registered voters will be featured throughout the Meelection! See a Meemocracy at work as kids decide who will be inaugurated to lead MeeMeeopolis!
