Toy Story Mini-figures
SNAP had been working with Hasbro on numerous direct-to-retail programs when a challenge was presented: develop an assortment of Toy Story figurines for the Dollar Store channel that would retail for $1.00. Well, anyone in this business knows what a tall order that was! Nevertheless, we presented options that would allow us to maximize the tool use, offer a variety of products, and ensure that all the interested parties made their target margins. And we pulled it off!
Monster University Interactive Plush
SNAP really enjoys developing feature plush and this was one of the most interesting, if not the most challenging, programs we’ve developed – an interactive, multi-character program incorporating sonic chirping and motion-sensing technology as well as iOS & Android app connectivity. These products included some unique design elements for the facial features that truly enhanced the character look and perceived value. We came up with a number of “SNAP solutions” during the debugging stage that resulted in a less than 8 month total timeline from initial development through shipment!
Disneyland 60th Anniversary
Client: Disneyland Resort
Anniversaries are a big thing, but they’re even bigger when it comes to Disney. For the 60th Anniversary celebrating the opening of the original Disneyland, we were approached to develop a one-of-a-kind plush toy that coincided with their integrated Merchandise theme. And that meant glitter and sequins, which is AWESOME but does present a challenge for passing safety. Our team got on it and presented a unique solution to meet those guidelines as well as to produce an AMAZING STYLISH plush toy! This program was an immediate hit for Disney.
The Child Plush – Star Wars: The Mandalorian
Client: Disney Stores
The Disney Stores approached SNAP to develop a plush toy for a new “character” for an upcoming show called The Mandalorian. Because we work with intellectual properties, it’s not uncommon for there to be some amount of secrecy surrounding a new launch. Yet, we could sense that there was something special about this project and the aura surrounding this character was really unique. Add to that a 14-week development to first ship timetable and we were going to have to hope the Force was with us. Fortunately, through lots of back and forth effort from all the vested parties, Snap was able to get our design and prototype approved, the toys manufactured to stringent quality control requirements, and still ship out within the client’s target deadline. It’s good to know we are on the right side of the Force!
Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Porg Talking Puppet Plush
Client: Disney Theme Parks
When the Walt Disney Company selected SNAP to work on the development of all of the basic and feature plush toys for their new theme park land, Star Wars – Galaxy’s Edge, to say that we were EXCITED would have been the understatement of the year. The Lucasfilm team asked us to create collector equivalent products that would seem as though they came directly from the movie set. To accomplish this we conceived and built prototypes of all-new mechanisms and sourced unique materials to give them that movie-like look. The final results spoke for themselves.
