LOS ANGELES, Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Top toy company and global leaders in innovation Moose Toys will next week unveil their much anticipated 2018 portfolio at the North American International Toy Fair.
Moose will use Toy Fair to reveal exciting new additions to their award-winning toys as they continue to disrupt and reinvent categories across the industry.
In 2017, the international sell-out Pikmi Pops redefined the Plush Category with the introduction of the cute, scented characters in lollipop vessels. Collectors around the world are eagerly anticipating the launch of Season Two with all new surprises, and with not one, but two, nominations for Toy of the Year, Pikmi Pops is sure to be the star of Toy Fair!
In addition to Pikmi Pops, Moose will debut two brand new plush brands: Scruff-a-Luvs and Fur Babies, cementing their position as a driving force within the category!
"We are so proud that this year at Toy Fair we are presenting a mix of brand new product that comes from the innovation and creativity that we are so famous for, as well as brand extensions celebrating fan favorites such as Shopkins and Pikmi Pops!" said Ronnie Frankowski, CMO at Moose Toys.
Already owners of the world's number one Girls Collectible Franchise, Shopkins1, Moose continues to reign strong within the category. This year in New York, Moose will preview: Season Two and Three of Cutie Cars, Happy Places, Shopkins Season 10 (with an all new exciting twist), PLUS a brand new never-before-seen line developed with a global partner!
"Recently named as the #1 Collectible for the 4th year running, Shopkins continues to go from strength to strength. Another TOTY nomination for Playset of the Year confirms that the brand is showing no signs of slowing down," Frankowski added.
Moose is also leading the way in Youth Electronics and will be showcasing the latest evolution within the category. Little Live, a brand that became famous for bringing pets to life, has expanded to include Bizzy Bubs, the cutest little babies around who in 2018 will introduce new babies with all new actions and personalities. Little Live also is introducing new animals to the line, including a Unicorn hitting shelves this fall!
AND for the first time ever, Moose Toys will use this year's Toy Fair to launch a Robot packed with attitude, fun and a little bit of mischief … Watch this space!

Each Scruff‐a‐Luv comes as a matted ball of coloured fur with only its eyes showing, so it's a mystery what animal kids are rescuing!

Each Scruff‐a‐Luv comes with a collar, name tag, adoption certificate, brush and hair clips. Scruff‐a‐luvs can be washed over and over again. This special kind of plush allows kids to play with it in the bath, role play with it, and care for it like a real pet – the possibilities are endless!
