Australian toymaker TPF Toys is making a big splash for its U.S. debut with the introduction of SplashlingsTM, a new collectible mermaid-themed toy line, invented by the famed Pound Puppies® creator, Mike Bowling. Launching exclusively at Toys “R” Us® U.S stores, Splashlings is a beautiful line of mermaid characters and their friends that will be introduced coinciding with New York International Toy Fair and the world debut of Play Fair. An all-new animated Splashlings digital series from Shaftesbury, the creator and producer of hit kids’ series including Life with Derek, will debut simultaneously. Splashlings collectible cards are also planned with Upper Deck for later this year.
