Miles from Tomorrowland Toys and Animated Series #TFNY #TFNY15 #MilesFromTomorrowland
Recently "Miles from Tomorrowland," an intergalactic adventure series, blasted off for Disney Junior on Disney Channel.
Note: I attended Toy Fair as media. No other compensation was received. Views expressed are always 100% my own.
The series follows the explorations of Miles and his family - mom and ship captain, Phoebe; mechanical engineer dad, Leo; tech-savvy big sister, Loretta; and best friend pet robo-ostrich, Merc - as they explore new galaxies filled with peculiar aliens, space-age vehicles and high-tech gadgets.
The series take young viewers (and their families) on a futuristic journey designed to fuel kids' natural interest in space and remind them of the importance of what lies close to home – the family bond.
While at Toy Fair 2015, I previewed the upcoming Miles from Tomorrowland toy line at TOMY booth.
