IAmElemental is getting a Television series that will be developed by The Jim Henson Company with Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford as the executive producers, and we couldn’t be happier. IAmElemental is the first and best female action figure company designed for children to play with. The figures are based on thing like Creativity, Ingenuity, Curiosity, Logic, Exploration, Mastery and Oblivion in the Series 2, while the Bravery, Honesty, Fear, Enthusiasm, Energy, Industry and Persistence were figures in the first series.
IAmElemental was a 2017 finalist in two categories, “Action Figure of the Year” and “Rookie of the Year” and has won multiple awards. The Jim Henson company seems excited to work with them to create strong female heroes based on the quotes below. We are excited that girls will be able to watch a new show that will be action packed and geared towards them, and with a company like Jim Henson behind it we know it will look and sound great.
Stay tuned for more information from the IAmElemental Television Series Coming From The Jim Henson Company, and hopefully we get a launch date for something to look forward to.
The Jim Henson Company announced today it will develop a new animated children’s television series based on the popular female action figures by IAmElemental. The series will target children ages 6 to 12. The deal will give The Jim Henson Company the opportunity to develop and produce the television series across all platforms.

The company conducted a Kickstarter campaign which was fully funded in two days, drawing backers from all 50 states and six continents, and its groundbreaking products were named by TIME Magazine as one of the “25 Best Inventions of 2014” and “Top 10 Toys of 2014.” Most recently, IAmElemental was selected as a finalist in the 2018 “Action Figure of the Year” category at the Toy Industry Association’s Toy of the Year Awards.
