As we mentioned, Moshi Monsters have hit toy shelves! With more than 50 million registered users worldwide, the online social game has become super popular.
Now kids can help celebrate the release during a special event at the Toys R Us in Times Square, on Friday, August 5, from noon – 3pm. The full line of products, made by Spin Master, will be available exclusively at Toys R Us and online at ToysRUs.com.
Created by Mind Candy, Moshi Monsters is a new form of children’s entertainment. The website (www.moshimonsters.com), which forms the heart of the experience, combines adoptable pet monsters, safe social networking, stories, games, missions, virtual interaction and educational puzzles. Over 15 million kids in North America have created their own monster! To offer young fans and customers a fully integrated experience, the toys will include secret codes that can be used to retrieve virtual items for adopted Moshi Monsters, as well as special trial memberships.
Not only will the all-new Moshi Monsters toys be available for purchase at the Times Square event, but event attendees will have the chance to enjoy other incredible appearances and activities, such as:
- Moshi Monsters characters, Poppet and Katsuma, appearing in person
- Moshi Monsters themed face painting

- While supplies last, attendees will receive a complimentary Moshi Code giveaway, created exclusively for the event, of a super sparkly Liberty trophy, used to decorate your virtual room on MoshiMonsters.com.
Additionally, the first 250 event attendees will have a chance to receive a special copy of the Moshi Monsters magazine.
The exclusive toy line will feature six adorable plush Moshi Monsters characters, as well as 32 Moshling mini-figures. Each will include secret codes that can be used to retrieve virtual items for adopted Moshi Monsters, as well as special trial memberships.
