A new collection of Bin Weevils toys is set to arrive from Character Options in stores this week.

Confirmed as master toy licensee at the London Toy Fair in January this year, Character Options’ new collection will consist of Bin Weevils and Bin Bot figures as well as accompanying playsets.

As part of the launch week, 100 users will also receive ‘First Day’ editions, enabling them to have certified first figures. The competition saw 30,000 entrants vie for the limited edition models.

The toy range will be debuted at Brand Licensing Europe this week.

“We are delighted to see the master toy collection finally come to fruition. It’s true to say our millions of users are eager to get their hands on the wide range of BinWeevils merchandise as they take their virtual social scene into their real world,” said Bin Weevils’ Amelia Johnson.

“The master toy collection in particular will be a must as members not only collect the figures, but also use the codes on each to redeem exclusive areas and nest items.”

Character Options’ Jerry Healy added: “We have received tremendous support from our retailers for our Bin Weevils collection and the demand is very high. All that see it agree that the new toy collection is fantastic and truly represents the most popular weevils on the site.

"If the comments from the 100 First Day figure winners are anything to go by, the fans of Bin Weevils will echo those thoughts.”
