I have spent many hours with the Slither.io app and my kids have as well as it is a really enjoyable game. Bonkers Toys has secured the Toy license for Slither.io toys and we have a bunch of different toys that will be available in March of 2017. The nice thing is since the Slither are color changing there are going to be all different sorts of colored toys for everyone to get. Bonkers starts out with both small and large plush as well as come plush type backpack clips. There will be a collector vinyl figure that you can put on display as well as the every popular “blind bags”
The blind bags are going to be great and I wonder what sort of color combinations will be rare and which ones will be more common.
With over 150 million downloads to date and 120 million game plays per day, Slither.io fans are clamoring to get their hands on the new toys and collectibles line coming spring 2017 from Bonkers Toys. Founded by toy industry veterans, Bonkers Toys recognized the game’s massive potential and secured the toy license for Slither.io. They will be leveraging the constant color-changing Slither with “gotta have” blind bags for kids of all ages as well as an assortment of plush, collector vinyl figures, backpack clips and more.
“There is no disputing the massive popularity of Slither.io, and Bonkers Toys is thrilled to give fans an exciting new brand extension with the toy line,” said Brian Bonnett, President and CEO of Bonkers Toys.
“Slither.io has become a worldwide phenomenon and we are excited to partner with Bonkers Toys as they bring the game to life with the toys,” said Lisa Berlin Wright, licensing agent for Slither.io.
The Slither.io toys will be available at retail and online in March 2017 and are expected to be a huge hit with kids, collectors and Slither.io super-fans.
When you have a built in audience that is in the millions of gamers, it makes perfect sense to indulge those games with some toys. The every changing color of the Slither allow this license to be one that can grow quite easily and I fully expect a bunch of different blind bag series to make their way to stores as kids and adults goggle these toys up.
