LOS ANGELES, Feb. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Moose Toys, one of the top toy companies in the U.S., is debuting exciting additions to its current hit brands, Shopkins and Little Live Pets, as well as introducing all-new product lines, including Betty Spaghetty, Hyper Toss and SelfieMic™, at the North American International Toy Fair in New York City on February 13-16, 2016.

Shopkins continues to delight and capture the attention of kids globally, as it claimed the spot of the top-selling toy in the U.S. in 2015 with its 12-Pack, according to The NPD Group Inc. / Retail Tracking Service. With the launch of Season 4, Shopkins adds 140 new characters in all-new categories, including Party Time, Garden, Homewares and the adorable Petkins. Shopkins also becomes a little sweeter this spring with the Sweet Spot Playset, where Shopkins can take a fun ride through a gumball machine. The popular Shoppies doll segment also grows with the addition of Peppa-Mint. Moose Toys continues to lead the collectibles space with the launch of two new collectible lines this summer.

"We were thrilled to see the success of Shopkins and Little Live Pets last year," said Paul Solomon, Co-CEO of Moose Toys. "Looking forward, we are so excited to bring even more smiles this year with the expansion of fan-favorite brands, as well as introducing some new innovation to the toy aisles in new categories!"

Enter the star of Toy Fair - SelfieMic™. With this innovative take on the selfie stick, kids can create their own music videos and become a pop star right from their own home. Created by UK-based Worlds Apart, the product features a selfie stick with an attached karaoke microphone, ear piece and music app. Aspiring pop idols stream their own voice or lip sync to their favorite songs to create music videos.

This year, Moose Toys is challenging fans to be active and test out their hand-eye coordination with Hyper Toss, a fast-moving, high-energy electronic game where kids listen to prompts that direct them to toss the Hyper Toss ball from cup to cup within the unit.

Finally, Moose is injecting a unique twist on a nostalgic favorite. Betty Spaghetty is making a comeback and is more fun than ever before! Using their imagination, kids mix and match Betty Spaghetty and her friends' outfits and hair to create a personalized doll that is completely unique.

To see the expanded line from Moose Toys, media can book an appointment at Moose Toys' booth at Toy Fair by contacting moose@mww.com. Located at booth #1657 at the Javitz Convention Center, Moose Toys will have exciting new 2016 products on display, which include:
