A Flagship Presence for Feathered Fun at the Crossroads of the World
Earlier this month, Toys"R"Us partnered with Rovio and Lucasfilm to host an event at the company’s international flagship store, Toys"R"Us Times Square in New York City, where customers were introduced to Angry Birds Star Wars and the app-inspired merchandise for the very first time. The all-new collection – from Halloween costumes and board games, to launchers and plush characters – was displayed throughout the day, providing fans a sneak peek of what’s to come, plus the opportunity to meet the creators of Angry Birds and take photos with an oversized, plush Chewbacca Bird.
Serving as the ultimate destination for tech-savvy consumers’ favorite feathered characters, the company recently unveiled a permanent Angry Birds boutique at Toys"R"Us Times Square. Featuring graphics of Angry Birds characters and other images reminiscent of the game, anchored by an eye-catching 20-foot-tall tower of stacked boxes with a King Pig perched on top, customers won’t be able to miss this dedicated space, filled with hundreds of Angry Birds products, including the latest Star Wars introductions.
