I’m excited to announce that Paddywhack Lane’s new picture book “The Costume Trunk” and line of coordinating toys is now available at Barnes & Noble stores nationwide and online at www.paddywhacklane.com.
In “The Costume Trunk,” a group of children discover a magic costume trunk which becomes the passageway to the enchanting land of Paddywhack Lane, where you can be anything you want to be if you just believe.
The coordinating toys (aka “Costumed Kids”) are simply adorable. Each 3.5″ poseable play figure comes with a costume and multiple accessories including a pet, and the quality is exceptional. I remember that most dolls and action figures from my youth had just 4 to 6 poseable joints, but Paddywhack Lane figures have 9!
I was introduced to Paddywhack Lane at the 2011 Toy Fair, where I met their creator Bob and his wife Sandy. Bob and Sandy modeled many of the Paddywhack Lane characters after their own children. As parents, they understand the importance of inspiring your child’s imagination and of encouraging pretend play.
Paddywhack Lane characters dress as princesses, ballerinas, pirates, veterinarians, cowgirls, puppies, rabbits, bees, ducks and mice for hours of make-believe fun. I highly recommend buying the Bedroom Cottage Play & Carry Case to hold all of the costumes and accessories and so your child can bring her favorite Paddywhack Lane toys with her during summer trips.
Paddywhack Lane is available at Barnes & Noble online and in stores.
