We are somewhat obsessed here with the iPad game Angry Birds (and really, who isn’t?). When we first caught wind that the Finnish company behind the game, Rovio, will be branching out into movies and plush toys, we were intrigued. When we obtained photographic evidence of one of these toys, we were ecstatic. (Not Dancingerick.com ecstatic, but pretty excited nonetheless).
Now we’ve got a photo of the entire line of Angry Birds plush toys, courtesy of Rovio’s U.S. adviser, Peter Levin, who is also the CEO of GeekChicDaily (which I wrote about here). He’ll be showing off the whole line of toys at the Big Apple Comic Con this weekend in New York City.
The toys will be available this holiday season, and some of them will be available as in-app purchases in the iPhone and iPad games.
Rovio is an entertainment media company based in Finland, and the creator of the globally successful Angry Birds franchise. Angry Birds, a casual puzzle game, became an international phenomenon within a year of release, and is now the number one paid app of all time. Following this success in mobile gaming, Angry Birds has expanded rapidly in entertainment, publishing, and licensing to become a beloved international brand.
GeekChicDaily another daily newsletter and site focused on everything from video games and toys, to apps, movies and comic books? A trio of media and entertainment industry execs is hoping so, betting that loyal fans of comic industry staple Wizard Magazine will eat up this new property called GeekChicDaily.
