Imports Dragon Expands Due To Massive Success Of Shopkins

Canada's Fastest Growing Privately Held Toy Company Ready To Launch Globally

BOISBRIAND, QC, Dec. 9, 2015 /CNW/ - Imports Dragon, Canada's fastest growing privately held toy company, has experienced an exceptional amount of growth over the past 24 months thanks in large part to holding the exclusive toy rights to some of the hottest properties in the kids collectibles market.

Shopkins, the biggest and hottest license in the Canadian market, has sold over $57 million dollars worth of products at retail in multiple categories including; collectibles, plush, candy, stationary and cards, and other impulse items. Along with the success of Shopkins, Trash Pack, the gross gang in garbage bins, has singlehandedly generated over $28 million dollars at retail in Canada since the launch.

Using innovative marketing, sampling programs, and retail events with an interactive brand experience, Imports Dragon has and will continue to expand and prosper in the Canadian market.

 "We are thrilled with the amazing growth for Imports Dragon and we thank our retail partners for their incredible support. The success of Shopkins has been unprecedented and we couldn't have asked for anything more!" said Stephan Tetrault, CEO, Imports Dragon. "We are looking forward to the future and to delivering an even bigger and better line of products in 2016!"

Shopkins have been declared the "hottest toy in the world" by news agencies around the globe, including the Toronto Star and CBC.
