With an eye on what’s new and trending in the categories of Pop Culture and Pet, Brandy Tanner and Mary Olson are the founders of A Crowded Coop (www.crowdedcoop.com) whose products have caught the attention of everyone from Parade Magazine, USA Today and VH1’s Buzz of late. At Toy Fair 2014 A Crowded Coop (Booth 4855) will preview items that will leave the cartoon-lover, Trekkie, Halo collector and gamer all thrilled. At the Show ‘The Coop’ will also unveil all new product lines for Cartoon Hangover’s Bravest Warriors, Dota 2 and Portal 2 from Valve Software and pet product collections for Elvis Presley, Star Trek: The Original Series and Adventure Time.
Toy Fair press and buyers will get the first look at the inaugural vinyl collectible collection for video game company Valve Software’s Team Fortress 2 (TF2) title. All characters from the iconic RED and BLU teams have been shrunk down into 3-inch vinyl collectibles (MSRP $9.99 each), meticulously designed and detailed side-by-side with Valve’s artists / designers responsible for creating the Team Fortress 2 game. The series marks the first time TF2 game characters have been anthropomorphized in stylized form.
A Crowded Coop’s Star Trek: The Original Series pet product collection, under a license from CBS Consumer Products, will also be shown at Toy Fair. This addition to the extensive portfolio of Star Trek licensees expands the iconic brand to pop-culture savvy pets and their owners in the United States. Dressing a dog like Spock and letting him sleep in the Captain’s Chair Dog Bed (MSRP $79.99) is now a reality.
Halo gamers will be introduced to the Halo Ammo Crate Tin Lunch Box from ‘The Coop’ (MSRP $29.99). The lunch box, with Reusable MRE (Meals Ready to Eat) sandwich bag, is designed to replicate the video game’s UNSC ammo crate in Halo 4. This is one of many unique items that will be launched at the show.
Fans of the Bravest Warriors cartoon will see an all new product line from A Crowded Coop including the Catbug Hooded Backpack. Dress-up like Catbug with a soft sided shell shaped backpack with storable plush Catbug hood with ears and contrast ‘Sugar Peas!’ lining (MSRP $59.95).
