February 16, 2019 – New York, NY – Add sparkle to your world with Shimmer Stars, the new line of shimmery, glitzy plush by KD Kids! Announced today at Toy Fair, these fabulous new friends come with an amazing Shimmerizer wand that adds some sparkle to both you and your pet!
Toy Fair attendees can stop by the KD Group booth (#5929) during the show to have their hair Shimmerized and see the adorable new line in person.
“Shimmer Stars are all about over-the-top glitz, glam and sparkle. We were really inspired by the idea of celebrity pets and the excessively glamorous way that their owners dress them up and match their fashion senses,” said Eric Levin, KD Group Strategic Director. “In the past year, we’ve seen a huge trend in sequins on everything from bags to pillows and clothing – Shimmer Stars gives kids the ability to magically place these shimmery sequins all over their pet, in their own hair or in friends’ hair, making this toy super customizable and giving kids endless hours of play.”

Shimmer Stars will debut with four animal styles to choose from: Panda, Cat, Dog and Unicorn. Each Shimmer Star includes the easy-to-use Shimmerizer wand and 200+ Shimmers that can be stored inside, plus accessories to wear and share: a tutu that can be used as a scrunchie, a collar that can be worn as a bracelet, and a hair bow that can be worn by the pet or you. Each style also includes a headband with matching animal ears so you can match your pet!
Shimmerizing with the wand is easy: place a Shimmer on the star and use the end of the Shimmerizer to pick it up. Pick a patch of fur or hair to decorate and press the button to add a shimmery shape! The Shimmers easily comb out with the included comb and are reusable, so you can change up your look at any time! Ages 4+, MSRP $19.99, Available Fall 2019.
