Super Impulse, the folks who make all those “World’s Smallest” versions of classic toys, is bringing another great nostalgic concept to stores. The launch of Wacky Packages Minis unleashes a new line of hilarious, miniature, 3D products based on the classic stickers by iconic trading card company Topps. Wacky Packages Minis offers a fun twist on the mini collectible trend.
A few years ago Topps released Wacky Packages erasers, but these new Wacky Packages Minis are a more elaborate take on translating the popular parody stickers into miniature 3D collectibles.
Originally launched in the 1960’s, Wacky Packages has continued to release new series to new generations through the 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s, and has earned a coveted place in pop-culture history. With silly and outrageous spoofs of popular household products, Wacky Packages Minis brings the original, 2D parody stickers to life by transforming them to 3D toys. There are 66 “collect-them-all” minis including 6 ultra-rare styles in pearlescent white.
With a mix of nostalgic “Old Skool” satire including Captain Crud and Bandache, along with “New Skool” wit, featuring Ghoul Scout Cookies and Dr. Pooper, this collection builds on the success of the classic collectible stickers, while remaining true to its retro roots. Each blind package “cup” of Wacky Packages Minis includes 5 mini products, 1 mini Original Wacky Packages sticker, and a collector checklist.
Super Impulse, internationally recognized for lines World’s Smallest® and World’s Coolest®, has significant experience with licensed products as well as miniature toys. Wacky Packages Minis aligns with the Super Impulse audience and is a perfect addition to their roster of miniature toys.
“Nobody does miniatures better than Super Impulse and we are amped to bring Wacky Packages Minis to the market,” says President of Super Impulse, Alan Dorfman. “There is a loyal collector base spanning five decades of Topps stickers; in fact, I collected them as a kid! We can’t wait to bring these to a new generation of boys and girls.”
Wacky Packages Minis are now available on Amazon.com, Target and specialty retailers and are coming soon to Walmart.
