We’ve planned a dynamic shopping experience that combines the fun of live video and the convenience of mobile shopping. It’s a one-stop-shop and takes the guesswork out of what to buy for the holidays and delivers a perfect gift right from ‘shelf’ to your door this holiday season,” said Eric Nyman, Chief Consumer Officer, Hasbro. “Today’s consumers crave easy access to product recommendations and simplified online shopping more than ever before, and we look forward to meeting them where they are to deliver a fun and entertaining online shopping experience.”

“As a mom of four kids 7 and under, I am always on the hunt for toys that will keep my kids engaged and entertained through play! With the holidays upon us, I am all too familiar with the stress of finding the perfect gift for each age, interest and child,” said Daphne Oz, Emmy Award-winning TV host of The Dish on Oz. “Hasbro has something for all my minis – from PLAY-DOH kitchen creations for my chefs-in-the-making, to everything we need for high-energy NERF battles, and of course amazing games and toys featuring our favorite characters like Peppa Pig, PJ Masks, Transformers, and My Little Pony. I am thrilled to get to connect with fans during this event and hopefully help them find something fun to fill this season with a little extra joy!”
