Halifax, Canada – ORB™, international children’s toy company, has announced the launch of a 10 episode web series centering around the top selling brand Soft’n Slo Squishies™. ORB™ has partnered with Nelvana Enterprises to create a series of digital shorts, as part of their strategy to further expand the line into new product areas.
“We are very excited to share this digital series and showcase Soft’n Slo Squishies™ in an entirely new way,” said Mitra Rad, Brand Manager at ORB™. “From licensing to broader line extensions, this is just one of the many ways that we will be expanding the Soft’n Slo Squishies™ brand over the next year.”
