In a bid to celebrate its triumphant return to retail earlier this year, the iconic brand is calling on fans of all ages to showcase their dance moves inspired by the quirky motions of Littlest Pet Shop pets.

The campaign, announced by Katy Katz, Head of Digital Marketing & E-Commerce at Basic Fun!, the brand’s parent company, kicked off with a spectacular premiere event at Macy’s Herald Square in New York City. Led by TikTok creators @Alexdwong, @GiaNina, and @MelissaBecraft, along with the legendary Geoffrey the Giraffe™ from Toys”R”Us, a lively flash mob featuring over 20 dancers weaved through the flagship store, captivating onlookers with their infectious enthusiasm.

“Bobble to the Beat” invites fans to join the fun by creating their own dance videos and sharing them on social media platforms using the hashtag #BobbleToTheBeat. The campaign’s custom brand anthem and choreography, crafted by acclaimed New York City-based professional Michael McCrary, capture the essence of the Littlest Pet Shop’s signature bobblin’ motion.

With over 1 billion Littlest Pet Shop pets sold worldwide since its inception by Hasbro, Inc., more than 30 years ago, the brand has become a household name. Now, with its resurgence in retail, Littlest Pet Shop boasts a lineup of over 120 bobblin’ pets, available in more than 20 countries.

Adding to the excitement, Littlest Pet Shop has partnered with Roblox to introduce a custom bobble dance emote within the popular gaming platform, further immersing fans into the world of Littlest Pet Shop.
