Saban Brands and Fisher-Price today announced a new line of Imaginext products, inspired by the iconic Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, for preschool-aged children coming to market summer 2015. The new toy line will include a range of figures, villains, weapons, Zords and a giant Megazord with multiple levels of play and 8 points of articulation. This epic Megazord also features a disc launcher, Ranger elevator, Command Center and villain jail, all in one toy. All products will be available exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores nationwide beginning May 2015, followed by a global rollout to additional retailers later in the year.
“Over the past two decades, the Power Rangers have proven to be a favorite in the hearts and imaginations of kids of all ages,” said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. “We are excited to bring the Power Rangers franchise to a preschool audience for the first time ever with the Imaginext brand. Fisher-Price truly understands the essence of immersive play for preschoolers and will bring the Power Rangers to life in a whole new way with this new innovative product line.”
“Saban’s Power Rangers has proven to be a powerhouse brand and kid-favorite for more than 20 years,” said Steve LaBella, SVP of Marketing, Fisher-Price Preschool. “Today’s parents actually grew up with the brand, and now we get to tap into Mighty Morphin Power Rangers nostalgia and debut an all-new Imaginext product line for this generation of preschoolers.”
