Creativity for Kids® brand launches “Sparkles the Unicorn.”
June 07, 2018 // Franchising.com // Cleveland, OH - Faber-Castell® USA today announced the launch of Sparkles the Unicorn to be sold exclusively at Learning Express Toys nationwide this summer.
Sparkles is the newest magical member of Creativity for Kids® highly successful Sequin Pets line launched at this year’s Toy Fair with Happy the Hedgehog. Like Happy, Sparkles the Unicorn is a calming weighted, reversible sequined plush animal that can be decorated with fun, repositionable felt stickers.
“We are thrilled to introduce Sparkles the Unicorn to the world,” said Lauren Ciprotti, Buyer, for Learning Express Toys. “Our customers love all things sequin and unicorn, and we know this adorable character kids can customize themselves will be a hit at Learning Express Toys.”
Faber-Castell is excited to see Sparkles hit store shelves, highlighting the brand’s focus on enriching lives through creativity and self-expression. Each product within their collection aims to inspire creativity and to allow for mindful crafting, self-expression, and/or pretend play.
“Happy the Hedgehog really struck a chord with everyone, most notably parents and educators of children with sensory processing issues,” said Heather Lambert-Shemo, Director of Marketing for Faber-Castell USA children’s brands. “We believe Sparkles the Unicorn will bring the same amount of joy and comfort to children and are very excited to partner with Learning Express for its initial launch.”
