Last fall, Intersell launched its Lil Wish Lanterns, collectible lanterns that light up the included Wishimal characters. Now, the company is expanding the brand with new surprise toys and an app. 

Each Lil Wish Lantern Surprise has two characters, one guaranteed and one surprise. There are 32 Wishimals for kids to collect. Each Wishimal comes with a QR code that kids can scan to upload their new friend into the Lil Wish Lanterns app. In the app, kids can play four different games, collect and decorate digital postcards, and look through the album of all of their Wishimals. 

“Our goal with Lil Wish Lanterns Surprise is to inspire children to dream big and explore their creativity,” says Phil Albritton, creator of Lil Wish Lanterns. “We believe that playtime should be both enchanting and educational, and these lanterns provide a wonderful opportunity for children to develop their storytelling skills while being immersed in a world of light and imagination.”

Lil Wish Lanterns Surprise are available at Amazon and other major retailers.
