Toys 'n' Playthings Article- July 2010 TnP looks at the contenders for this year's new craze, with a variety of TCG's, pocket money toys, classics, returning brands and more all vying for attention and pocket money.
The In Thing reckons its new Toonz Micro Monsters are going to be taking over the collectables industry in the UK. This great new children’s collectable is now hitting the shelves backed by a huge TV campaign over Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and POP Channels with a guaranteed 500-plus TVRs over the middle of the year.
At 99p for a pack of three Toonz with 3D holographic faces, three Stickers and a mini brochure they are expected to no doubt be the next ‘In Thing’. Toonz are small (approx three cm tall) colourful collectable figures with 40 different characters and four different colours for each character giving 160 to collect in series one.
With their 3D faces Toonz have their very own personalities. Because they can change faces one second they are cute, the next angry, one second they are funny and the next scary. The booster packs are going to be followed by a huge range of Toonz accessories retailing at no more than £2.50 each.
