Enchantimals are one of the new products that will be geared towards girls in the Fall of this year and these cute dolls are half girl and half animal who also have their own animal friend. These characters live in a fantastical world and share the message of “Caring is Everything.” and what a great message that is for young children to grasp. So far we have seen a bunch of different animal pairs but the panda, fox and skunk are some of our favorites. Expect to see all different kinds of animals as the product line grows. There is also a Playhouse set that will include Prue Panda and Panda Friends with the vehicle line be introduced with Taylee Turtle and a tricycle. The Merit Monkey doll will come with a fruit cart and this looks to be a very fun product line.
What immediately comes to mind for me is will we see a full blown show or some YouTube/Internet shorts for the characters? There also seems to a very easy way to include Roleplay items for the characters as well. Looking forward to seeing what Mattel has in mind for the Enchantimals, but we will be happy to be along for the ride as girls everywhere clamor for these half girl/half animal dolls.
Mattel’s newest girl’s property celebrates the special bond between girls and their animal friends. Our research has shown that girls love animals, and it is the #3 play thematic for girls. The new line of Enchantimals, launching this fall, is a group of half girl/half animal friends who live in a fantastical world and share the message that “Caring is Everything.” The doll line introduces an assortment of dolls emulating animals including a fox, panda, bunny and more.
