BLACKPINK’s new single “How You Like That” has taken the world by storm. With the song BLACKPINK broke a YouTube record and they played the single on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. The K-pop group is expected to make a comeback in September 2020 with their first full-length album. Recently, BLACKPINK also released a collective toy line with Jazwares, and the products are all inspired by the four band members.
BLACKPINK partnered with Jazwares to create a toy line
There are several products that BLINK can buy from BLACKPINK’s new toy line. Fans can purchase several three-inch dolls representing the four members: Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa. There are 16 dolls in total, and each member has a doll designed with their clothes from their “Kill This Love”, “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du”, “Boombayah” and “Whistle” music videos.
All dolls are marketed as a mystery so fans don’t know which doll they bought until they opened the package. With the Mystery Pop Star set, BLINKs will buy a three-inch doll in a microphone-shaped case. The Mystery Superstar set is a heart-shaped case, and fans will receive extra accessories along with the doll. BLINKs can also buy a Light-Up Plush Heart that lights up BLACKPINK’s music.
“It’s so cute to see ourselves as mini dolls,” BLACKPINK told Teen Vogue. “We want to collect them all! It will be fun to mix and match … We were so impressed with the detail level of the doll’s clothes! “
