During Toy Fair NY 2015, Alex Brands shared announcements of major licensing deals with Nickelodeon and the recent acquisition of the SHRINKY DINKS brand, along with a preview of products including infant/preschool toys, games, science kits, craft & activity kits, art supplies and Made in USA products from POOF and SLINKY.
Note: I attended Toy Fair as media. No other compensation was received. Views expressed are always 100% my own.
A few highlights I saw at the ALEX BRANDS booth include:
The Alex Brands licensing agreement with Nickelodeon offers a broad array of products based on popular characters; SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dora and Friends. 27 PRODUCT DEBUTS, including Bath Games, Mosaics, Rub Art, Scra- ti, Shrinky Dinks and more
SCIENTIFIC EXPLORER - Offers many ways to expose children to science at a young age in a fun and engaging way. New products will help kids create a Jurassic paradise with Dinoland Crystals, make a giant bouncy ball that glows with Mold N' Glow Mega Ball, build a kaleidoscope with DIY Liquid Kaleidoscope and design a bug city with BUGPODZ Metropolis.
ZOOB® - Building sets foster imagination and interactive creations, with pieces that can move after they are put together stimulating further play. 2015 product introductions include two new themed-based collections – construction and space.
Each collection is available in three different sized kits with easy to read instructions for four different epic-sized models. With the ZOOB® Galax-Z Z-Star Explorer™ kids can transform it into three different space-themed builds, and the ZOOB® Z-Strux™ series of construction models include a driller, loader and crane.
