Toy Fair First-Look: Sprout's Floogals Toys by Just Play!

Written by

It was January of 2016 when I declared that "Sprout's FLOOGALS is the next great space-based program for kids." In that article, I noted that our youngest daughter, Finley, immediately began asking us, "When are Floogals toys coming out?" At the time, there was no licensee for Floogals, but that changed last summer when the folks at Just Play picked up the ball. In the time since, a weird thing has happened... Finn has asked for Floogals toys every single time a package has arrived. We're talking over a year, folks. With each delivery by FedEx or UPS to Rock Father HQ, she always sees the boxes and asks, "Is it Floogals toys?" Of all the many diverse interests that our girls have, I have never seen such an obsession over one thing that until now, simply didn't exist. Today, that changes. Thanks to my friend Lindsay at Ren Beanie, I have for you a first-look at Just Play's first batch of Floogals Toys! This is straight from the product showroom at the in-progress North American International Toy Fair in New York City. Check it out...

Now, I don't yet have the official product details such as descriptions and pricing (I will very soon), but I can tell you that these will be available for purchase later this year. There's a figure and tool set, some feature plush, and these sweet little vehicles... "Fizzers."

One thing we're really hoping for is a version of the main ship that the Floogals crash-land in when they come to Earth - the one that ends up being purchased from a yard sale, and soon ends up being a catalyst for adventure (seen in the show opening). It doesn't appear that such a ship is on display at New York Toy Fair, but a lot of times these new toy lines start with baby steps.

Look for more news on the Floogals toys as soon as I have it, and in the meantime, be sure to catch the show (just renewed for a second season) on Sprout!
