LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rainbow High™, the leading fashion doll brand from one of the largest and fastest growing privately held toy and entertainment companies in the world, MGA Entertainment, today announced its partnership with actor and director Haylie Duff. Best known for her roles in various film and television projects, Haylie Duff is also the founder of a children’s fashion line and a devoted mom who values quality time with her daughters, sharing special moments with her community of parents across her social channels. Her endorsement of the all-new Rainbow High™ Dream & Design Studio™ Playset, as well other key Fall launches from the brand, like Fantastic Fashions™ and Color & Create™ dolls, speaks to the influence of the popular Rainbow High brand across homes worldwide. It also points to brand’s continued commitment to offering unique touchpoints for moms and guardians everywhere to connect with their kids through entertainment and creativity.
As a busy parent, Haylie Duff understands the importance of finding activities that offer meaningful points of connection, including toys that engage and entertain her daughter, brands that increase confidence at a critical age in development, and moments to bond over shared passions as Mom and daughter. The Rainbow High Dream & Design Studio Playset allows children to create their own unique fashion designs, inspiring kids to be creative and instilling a core sense of self-confidence at an early age.
Knowing that confidence tends to drop by 30% in young girls ages eight to 14 (according to The Confidence Code for Girls), finding tools to encourage, nurture, and sustain confidence in kids as young as four years old is important. Creating a foundation of encouragement and inspiration and letting your true colors shine throughout childhood is what Rainbow High is all about. It’s those very values that Haylie stands by in her endorsement of the colorful brand. Haylie’s daughters, Ryan Ava (eight years old) and Lulu Gray (five years old), explore friendships and self-expression through playing with their own favorite Rainbow High dolls at home and watching the popular Rainbow High series on repeat.
“I am thrilled to partner with Rainbow High, an inclusive and beautiful fashion doll brand near and dear to my heart and one that my daughters cannot get enough of,” said Haylie Duff. “I love that through the Dream & Design Fashion Studio playset and other style-centric toys like Rainbow High Fantastic Fashions dolls, I can pass along my personal love of fashion, entrepreneurship, and self-expression to Ryan Ava and Lulu Gray, all while encouraging my girls to let their true colors shine.”
The new playset encourages kids to incorporate fashion designer roleplay into their play patterns so they can become a stylist, just like their favorite Rainbow High doll. The Rainbow High Dream & Design Fashion Studio Playset comes with an exclusive Skyler Madison doll, along with the essentials to help kids dream and create their own fabulous fashion designs and unique looks, like the No-Sew Easy Fashion Kit, real Rainbow High fabric and functional mannequin. Kids can create more than 300 fashion designs offering hours of fun during a playdate with friends, after-school bonding time with Mom, or independent play. The Rainbow High Dream & Design Fashion Studio Playset is available at $49.99 MSRP at all major retailers, including Walmart, Target, and Amazon. For more inspiration, parents and kids are encouraged to tune into YouTube, and check out all the colorful fashion designs Skyler Madison creates with passion and confidence on the hit Rainbow High Animated Series Season 4, Project Rainbow Edition. And don’t forget to watch seasons one through three on YouTube, Netflix, and Kidoodle.
“Rainbow High is delighted to partner with Millennial entertainment icon and dedicated mom, Haylie Duff,” said Corey Roman, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, MGA Entertainment. “Haylie’s love for the Dream & Design Studio Playset aligns perfectly with the brand’s vision of inspiring creativity and empowering children to let their true colors shine.
