TF14: Huckleberry Toys
Licensed Mini Figure Finger Puppets: DM2, Godzilla, More!...
After finding success in their pop culture themed Chara-Covers (stylish mobile phone protection, see our story HERE), Huckleberry Toys is branching out to include pop culture themed finger puppets. Measuring approximately 2 inches tall, each finger puppet is actually a nicely sculpted hard plastic mini figure. They just happen to be hollow inside for the adventurous wee ones AND as a convenient place to pack the included gum. This new series is shipping now with a blind-boxed assortment of 10 Minions from the hit animated movie Despicable Me 2. For those that love the hilarious yellow creatures (like myself), this is a great and affordable way to collect a variety of them for display (flat rarity). These will retail for around $3 each and will be sold EVERYWHERE. At least that's what Huckleberry told us, and by that they mean these will be available at most major retail stores, pharmacies, you name it. I'm sure you'll see them in the checkout lane.
Future finger puppet licenses include Godzilla (yes!), How To Train Your Dragon, Batman '66, Batman Animated, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and Guardians of the Galaxy!
The finger puppets aren't the only great impulse buys coming from Huckleberry. The company is also preparing to release die-cut character stickers, collectible punch out magnet sheets, and snap-fit model kits. All for around $3 each.
