MGA launches The Hangrees

Published on: August 12th, 2019

The slime-pooping collectible pop culture parody figures launch in UK stores.

With names such as Harry Plopper, Mutant Turds, Chew-KaKa, Fartnite and more, there are nine characters within the first collection plus a rare “chrome” character, with further collections planned for the future. Available now, individual Hangrees retail at an RRP of £10.99 and are suitable for ages 8+.

As well as holding appeal to collectors, a key component to The Hangrees is the included mysterious slimy poop. Kids can make up the compound in three easy steps: by feeding the character water, ‘food’ (such as Kit-Splat or Poo-ringles) and ‘food flavour’; shaking well and then quickly placing The Hangrees character on the toilet. After the inevitable result, the slime can then be stored in a resealable container for re-use.

Isaac Larian, CEO and founder of MGA Entertainment commented: “The toy industry needs more laughter – our core target is kids. They enjoy humour, parodies and, of course, slime. The Hangrees is a parody brand that is designed to bring laughter to consumers of all ages. The Hangrees characters ‘cheeky’ designs are carefully crafted to bring laughs, jokes and excited expressions – from the names to the details. Always remember: #ItsGoodtoLaugh!”
