TORONTO, December 10, 2018― Do (doo doo doo doo doo) you need to get your fins on Baby Shark plush characters, the toy sensation that sold out online within two days? Showcase, Home of the Hottest Trends announces today that thousands of Baby Shark products have arrived at its warehouse ― just in time for the holidays. Product is limited and Showcase Trend Experts predict its Baby Shark products will sell out quickly based on trend-predicting data and the number of pre-orders it has already received.
Available in plush toys and stackable cubes, each loveable character plays the highly addictive Baby Shark song when pressed (batteries included). They are produced by WowWee toy company, the Canadian company that also makes the popular Fingerlings, and Pinkfong, the official creator behind the global Baby Shark craze.
All 108 Canadian Showcase as well as eight U.S. locations, which opened earlier this year, will have a limited number of Baby Shark, Mommy Shark and Daddy Shark characters, with select stores having them as early as tomorrow (Tuesday). The majority of Showcase stores will have product in-stock by this weekend and all stores will have them before the holidays. But, last minute shoppers beware: product is limited and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Baby Shark plush toys and stackable cubes are already available online at www.ShopAtShowcase.com.
“Showcase has been helping parents get the hottest toys since launching our first store in 1994,” says Samir Kulkarni, Showcase CEO. “We use trend predicting technology to identify what toys, games and products are going to be top sellers, well before they are available in Canada. Last year it was Fingerlings and the year before that it was Hatchimals. We have been working hard to get Baby Shark to Canada and are thrilled that, once again, we can help parents make the holiday season even more magical for their kids.”
The Baby Shark video, created by Pinkfong, has been viewed more than 3.3 billion times and sparked the #BabySharkChallenge* on social media.
