Moose Toys is keeping ‘ahead of the innovation and design curve’ this season, as it unwraps a trio of new launches in the youth electronics and fashion dolls sectors. Squeakee the Balloon Dog, Gotta Go Flamingo and the fashion doll line FailFix are each tipped to be big numbers for the global toymaker this Christmas.
“Every holiday, we push the limits of what’s possible to make kids super happy. A funny, interactive balloon dog coming to life, a pooping flamingo with a signature song, and dolls that arrive messy for kids to make over is eclectic, unexpected and, most of all, irreverent fun,” said Paul Solomon, co-owner, Moose Toys.
“Squeakee, Gotta Go Flamingo and FailFix showcase Moose’s ability to stay ahead of the innovation and design curve and deliver what kids are looking for this holiday.”
Already widely touted as Toy of the Year, Squeakee is an interactive pet that’s part robot dog, part balloon dog. Squeakee has more than 60 sounds and movements, barking, walking, sitting and scooting like a real dog. Additionally, Squeakee has multiple touch sensors that allow you to ‘pop’ and ‘reinflate’ him with a pin, or take delight in his reaction to a belly rub.
Squeakee listens and responds to voice commands, a skill that comes in handy when he accidentally ‘pees’ on the floor via a yellow light.
In addition to Squeakee, Moose Toys is looking to dominate the youth electronics aisle with the debut of Gotta Go Flamingo. Sherbert is an interactive, potty-trained flamingo who sings, dances, chats back, eats and poops in a special toilet. Simply feed Sherbert his magical flamingo food and watch his neck wiggle as he gobbles it down.
You know when it’s time for Sherbert to go because he sings a signature “Uh Oh, Gotta Go!” jingle and poops into the bowl.
Gotta Go Flamingo features movements, sounds and reactions and fosters repeat play so you can “do-do” it all over again once he is done. Gotta Go Flamingo has already been named one of the top 12 toys for Christmas 2020 by leading UK retailer Argos, and global production is at full capacity due to high demand.
Finally, Moose Toys finds the funny in makeover mishaps with its new fashion doll, FailFix. Inspired by the beauty fails that first rose to popularity on social media, FailFix offers a relatable and lighthearted outlook on fashion with a transformative concept that brings freshness to the doll aisle.
FailFix allows kids to take over the makeover and explore a true head-to-toe transformation, turning them into style saviors. Unlike most dolls, FailFix dolls arrive wearing a bathrobe with disheveled hair and makeup. The metamorphosis begins with a robe reveal of the doll’s outfit debut, and then a magic spa mask is applied to unveil a perfectly polished makeup look.
Finally, the makeover is completed by removing the accessories stuck in the doll’s hair and using the included tools to style it into an elaborate braid or other updo.
