Toys”R”Us Announces Pre-Sale of Atlantic Recording Artist and Pop Idol Cody Simpson Doll
MONTCLAIR, N.J., Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The Wish Factory, the on-trend children’s consumer products company, announced that starting today consumers will have the chance to get a jump on the hottest licensed brand of the holiday season as Toys”R”Us offers the opportunity to pre-order the highly anticipated Cody Simpson doll.
The Australian-born singer and songwriter is rapidly becoming a pop idol, approaching 2 million Twitter followers, 2 million Facebook likes and over 100 million YouTube views. With word leaking out in social media circles that a Cody Simpson Doll will be available this Christmas, fans of the Australian teen heartthrob are tweeting, calling and scouring for ways to get their hands on the 11.5-inch version of their favorite singer. To help gift-givers ensure that they’ll receive a Cody Simpson doll before Christmas, Toys”R”Us is now accepting pre-orders online at www.Toysrus.com/CodySimpson.
“We would like to see that everyone who wants a Cody Simpson doll will be able to get one,” says Scott Bachrach, president of The Wish Factory. “This pre-order opportunity offers the best chance to those who order now that they will have the Cody Simpson doll when it becomes available in stores nationwide in early December.”
“I’m really excited for the release of my doll at Toys”R”Us this holiday season!” said Cody. “When things like this start to happen for an artist, you know that your career is moving in the right direction. I’m truly thankful for all of my fans. Without them, opportunities like this do not exist.”
There are two basic Cody Simpson dolls available for pre-sale, both 11.5 inches. The fashion dolls look just like Cody, complete with sculpted hair resembling his signature side-swept surfer-do. One doll features a Gold Coast Tee and Khakis, and the other doll features a rockin’ Denim Jacket and Black Pants. Both have bendable joints and each includes a pair of shoes, sunglasses, microphone, guitar pick and lanyard.
“Toys”R”Us is THE place for kids and tweens to find the latest and coolest playthings that top their holiday wish lists,” said Lisa Harnisch, Vice President, General Merchandising Manager, Toys”R”Us, U.S. “Cody Simpson fans are already clamoring to get their hands on this doll, and we are excited to be the exclusive destination for gift-givers to find this hot new product during the holiday season.”
From YouTube to superstardom, Cody Simpson has made it into the hearts of millions of young fans, and now they have the chance to bring their favorite pop idol home with them. The Cody Simpson collection from The Wish Factory will feature a wide range of fashion dolls, figures, plush koalas and accessories available exclusively at Toys”R”Us.
