WowWee, known for creating toys with Fingerlings, Baby Shark, Got2Glow Fairy Finder and My Squishy Little Dumplings, the first phase of the partnership will introduce physical dolls centered around GameFan’s Twilight Daycare.
Twilight Daycare allows fans to play as babies, toddlers or caretakers in an immersive social roleplay world filled with experiences from feeding to changing diapers and playing with toys. Inspired by the babies in the game, WowWee and GameFan will introduce a line of dolls that all scan back into the game, unlocking exclusive characters that players can play as and interact with.
"As a toymaker, it has been fascinating to see the evolution of the Roblox metaverse and its role in kids' play and social interaction," says Sydney Wiseman, vice president, brand development
The partnership is the first of its kind for both brands, aiming to merge WowWee's experience with IRL play with GameFan's in virtual play. The Twilight Daycare-inspired doll line is the first of many ventures to come from the collaboration.
"As the Roblox metaverse becomes the center of kids’ entertainment and new toy business, we are thrilled to partner with WowWee; Sydney Wiseman and her team just get it," says Joe Ferenc, founder and chief executive officer, GameFan. "They had an incredible vision for our marquee IP, Twilight Daycare, and we can't wait to delight our tens of millions of fans with these adorable collectibles."
The dolls will be hitting shelves and available for purchase in 2022. For more information on the line as it's available, visitWowwee.com
