RICHFIELD, Ohio, March 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Neither evil alien wizards nor raging gods of destruction could destroy the mood at the 116th North American International Toy Fair in New York City, where Just Funky made a splash celebrating the upcoming 30th anniversary of featured license Dragon Ball Z. The family-owned lifestyle company offered a sneak peek of its exclusive merchandise for their rapidly expanding portfolio of iconic brands at the largest trade event of its kind in the Western Hemisphere.
