Tagged with: | | | | |

Spin Master, a Canadian toy and entertainment company, has acquired the Orbeez brand and other select brands from California-based toy manufacturer Maya Toys for an undisclosed price.

Orbeez are wet, soft, squishy, bouncy water beads that begin as tiny seeds and grow magically to a round form when water is added. The technology behind the Orbeez brand is said to be applied to a range of toys, covering arts-and-crafts sets to pampering products.

According to Spin Master, the activity brand has captivated children in exploring the water beads and create unique experiences that remain fresh and stimulating creativity after the package is opened.

Anton Rabie – Spin Master Co-Founder and Co-CEO said: “Orbeez represents a universally-appealing play pattern and as a result, this amazing Maya Toys property has stimulated the imaginations of millions of children globally.

“We’re thrilled with this acquisition, which further strengthens our vibrant and growing Activities business, providing recurring revenue and opportunities for integration into our existing product lines, as well as for further innovation.”
