In case you haven’t heard, foodie fun is a BIG deal this year. In fact, there are so many food-themed toys topping kids’ wish lists that we’re calling it a Food Frenzy!
Now, MGA Entertainment is getting in on the action with some culinary collectibles of its own, but they’re betting big by going small.
MGA’s Miniverse is a pocket-sized collectible brand that launched earlier this year with shrink-ray-zapped versions of its popular toys. Its new Make It Mini Food assortments are inspired by the TikTok trend of DIY crafting with resin play and mini foods. Kids ages 8 and up can unwrap a variety of inedible “ingredients” that they can use to create a mini food masterpiece. The resin “syrup” can be poured atop the pretend food and then placed in direct sunlight to harden. Check out the video below to see how it works!
MGA’s Miniverse Make It Mini Food packs include an array of pretend food, from mini chocolate chips and mini sprinkles in mini collectible jars that really work to mini donut boxes with mini donuts, to a mini carton of milk with actual liquid. In total, there are more than 100 unique Make It Mini Food ingredients and kitchen accessories within 18 Make It Mini Food Café Edition packs and 18 Make It Mini Food Diner Edition packs.
Walmart stores will serve up the MGA Miniverse Make It Mini Food Diner Edition ($9.99) beginning Dec. 5 while the Make It Mini Food Café Edition ($6.99) will arrive later in December.
Both offerings will expand to Target and additional retailers beginning in January.
