Series 2 Will Join Last Year’s Launch of Series 1 to Create a More Robust Plant Island Song!
BELOIT, Wis. (February 22, 2020) —In 2019, PlayMonster joined forces with Wind Sun Sky, in partnership with Skybound Entertainment and Big Blue Bubble, as master toy license in North America for the top-grossing mobile game My Singing Monsters. Since then, PlayMonster has been busy developing singing figures and adorable collectible babies! Series 2 of the multi-year program will be unveiled at North American International Toy Fair in New York, February 22 – 25 at booth #435.
In the My Singing Monsters mobile game, players young and old add Monsters to their islands to create songs. Each Monster has its own personality and part in the song, so the song changes as more Monsters are added. Along the way, players feed and breed their Monsters, and add structures for hours of fun. The game has 90+ million players worldwide, and fans have loved seeing the game and its characters come to life in PlayMonster collectibles.
For 2019, PlayMonster launched six singing figures from the popular Plant Island, plus a 3-pack and two Spooktacle exclusives. The articulate 3D figures each sing on their own, and also harmonize together when multiple are collected. For 2020, six more will debut that can harmonize with the Series 1 Monsters. Series 2 will include Drumpler, Fwog, Bowgart, Potbelly, Pummel and Tawkerr. Each Monster is sold separately, and comes with one of its favorite accessories from the mobile game.
Also launching in 2020 will be Series 2 of My Singing Monster Babies, which are baby versions of the popular Monsters. Each Baby Monster comes inside its unique and colorful egg and makes adorable collectibles. PlayMonster plans to release eight, joining the existing eight of 2019.
