"It was an extremely competitive category, so it makes this award – which already is truly such an incredible honor – that much more significant. Winning Creative Toy of the Year for Magic Mixies is validation that our continued focus on doing things differently and bringing the 'Superhappy' to life is resonating with consumers and the toy industry," said Paul Solomon co-owner, Moose Toys. "We are grateful for the recognition and so proud of the entire Moose team for this amazing accomplishment."
Magic Mixies Magic Cauldron's win as Creative Toy of the Year solidifies Moose's foothold as an innovation powerhouse. Created to ignite imaginations by putting real magic into kids' hands, Magic Mixies was the must-have toy of the holiday season, marking a record-breaking launch for Moose Toys and ranking No. 1 in Special Feature Plush for December and for Fall season (Fall: August- December).¹ The frenzied response to Magic Mixies has prompted the company to accelerate a global consumer products licensing program with top agents in key territories and entertainment partnerships.
Full of surprise and delight, the Magic Mixies brand will continue to innovate with new products this year.

We are a family-run business, but that doesn't mean we are small-time. We shook up the toy industry in 2014 with the global phenomenon Shopkins, and through these pint-sized characters, we reinvigorated the way children play. Not satisfied to stop at toys, we have also stretched ourselves into creating content, entertainment and making worldwide licensing deals. Moose calls Australia home, but our 500-strong team is scattered globally, spreading the Superhappy.
