SEATTLE, WA – July 13, 2021 – Funko Inc. (“Funko,” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: FNKO), the leading company of pop culture consumer products, announced today the expansion of its popular children’s toy line, Snapsies, with Snapies Series 2 and GEMS.

Expanding its existing slate of cute snap-and-match collectibles from the 2021 NAPPA Award-winning toy line, Snapsies Series 2 will feature a new lineup of characters that include French Bulldogs, Alicorns (a mix of a Unicorn and a Pegasus), Leopards, Skunks and Koalas.

Recommended for children ages 3 and up, Series 2 will be available in stores at Target and GameStop, and online at Target.com, Amazon.com, Walmart.com and Funko.com (MSRP: $9.99).
In time for the holidays, Snapsies GEMS comes in the same mix and match blind capsules as packs of two (MSRP: $19.99), three (MSRP: $29.99) and five (MSRP: $49.99). Featuring dazzling new seasonal-themed characters like Ivy Shimmer, Sugarplum Sparkle, Snowflake Glitz and more, GEMS will be available at Target stores, and online at Funko.com and Target.com. Additional retailers will be announced in the coming months.
“After launching Snapsies in December 2020, we were thrilled to see how young fans embraced the toy line,” said Dave Beré, Funko’s Senior Director of Marketing. “Through Series 1, we learned that children love the mix and match, discovery and surprise features and were inspired to create vibrant Series 2 and GEMS lines to continue the fun for fans.”
