Published on: 11th April 2014

Smyths Toys Superstores has announced that Saban’s Power Rangers Megaforce is to make its Irish debut while visiting children and families at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin, Dublin.

This will take place before embarking on a six-stop tour at selected Smyths stores throughout the country. The tour will run from April 12th through April 17th, featuring a 10m² pop-up marquee outside several of the leading toy retailer’s stores. The Irish tour is the third installment of the Power Rangers’ larger European tour, following successful stops throughout both the UK and France in 2013.

Commenting on the Power Rangers appearances, Dryden Geary, marketing manager for Smyths Toys Superstores, said: “Everyone at Smyths Toys Superstores is thrilled to be welcoming the Power Rangers Megaforce to Ireland for the first time. This event is one of the most exciting we’ve ever run and we’d like to invite everyone to attend the appearances as we bring the Power Rangers to life exclusively for our Irish customers.”

Gustavo Antonioni, managing director of consumer products Europe for Saban Brands, noted: “We had tremendous success with our Power Rangers Megaforce live tours last year in the U.K. and France, and this year we wanted to bring the same excitement to the fans in Ireland. We can’t wait for our Irish viewers to get the chance to experience the Power Rangers in a whole new way during the Easter Holidays.”
