"At its core, Mysticons celebrates every girls' strength, confidence and character, which provides an exciting new opportunity for us to develop a truly unique toy line that empowers girls to use their imagination to create their very own mythical quests," said Gina Beebe, Senior Vice President of Girls' Marketing, Playmates Toys.
