Moose Toys reveals one-of-a-kind Shopkin for NY Toy Fair

Moose Toys has revealed a one-of-a-kind Shopkin to be auctioned off in support of the Toy Industry Foundation.

The Shopkin, named the Winnie Award will be plated with gold and set with five real diamonds, hand-crafted in Australia and displayed for the first time at NY Toy Fair. The item will then be auctioned off at a later date this year. 

“Shopkins continues to be a global phenomenon, and we are honored to give back,” said Paul Solomon, co-CEO at Moose Toys. “Winnie Award will help brighten the lives of precious children with the charity auction to benefit the Toy Industry Foundation.”

Moose Toys auctioned off a rare character in 2015 called Gemma Stone for $21,500, and all proceeds benefited the Toy Industry Foundation.

“We really appreciate all of Moose Toys’ continuous support for our organization,” said Elizabeth Max, program manager at the Toy Industry Foundation.

“After the incredible results from the Gemma Stone auction, we are so excited to see Winnie Award help bring just as many, if not more, smiles to kids’ faces with another successful auction.”
