Breyer Animal Creations, long established as the world’s leading brand for authentic horse models, toys and collectibles, has partnered with Aurora World, one of the outstanding global leaders in high-quality plush. Entering Breyer’s 70th anniversary year in 2020, Aurora will be launching up to five new assortments of horse plush, each inspired by the most authentic brand in horses – Breyer.
“Breyer is a timeless brand beloved by generations of fans who love horses,” said Michael Kessler, Aurora World’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We are very excited about this relationship and look forward to delivering high quality horse plush authentic enough to carry the Breyer brand.”
“I am passionate about great plush and the joy it brings to kids,” said Tony Fleischmann, president of Reeves International, Breyer’s parent company. “Aurora has the same dedication to high quality as we do. I’m thrilled to see Breyer horses come to life in plush.”
To help bring Breyer’s horses to life in plush, vice president of marketing Stephanie Macejko, who holds a degree in equine science and has a lifetime of experience with horses, worked closely with Aurora’s designers to ensure breed accuracy and capture the loveable inspiration only horses can bring. “Aurora’s attention to detail has been fantastic,” said Stephanie. “Their expertise has captured how magical horses truly are. We wanted to make sure that hugging Aurora’s Breyer plush is like hugging a real horse.”
Aurora’s full line of Breyer plush will begin to hit markets in late 2019 and be fully launched in 2020.
