Friday August 5th will see the official launch of the Moshi Monsters toy line in the US - with Toys R Us in Times Square planning an exclusive event for fans.
The launch party - taking place from noon to 3pm - will include appearances from Moshi Monsters characters Poppet and Katsuma; themed face painting; autograph signing by Michael Acton Smith; and a Moshi Code giveaway (while stocks last), created exclusively for the event.
In addition, the first 250 attendees will have the chance to receive a special copy of the Moshi Monsters Magazine.
The toy line includes six plush characters, as well as 32 Moshling mini figures. Each will include secret codes which can be used to retrieve virtual items for the adopted Monsters, as well as special trial memberships.
Moshi Monsters now has over 50 million registered users worldwide.
