Pets + Cosplay = Pawzplay at #ToyFair17

If people can dress up as superheros, why not pets? I discovered a new line of collectible and cuddly critters who love cosplay. Pets + Cosplay = Pawzplay™! Just like people, these cute pets love to show their DC fandom and want to be involved in the exciting culture of cosplay. Get the scoop from my interview with Barry from Factory Entertainment about the debut of PawzPlay.

The world of Pawzplay™ launches in the Summer of 2017 with an assortment of kittens and puppies dressed as their favorite DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains.
