TheSoul Publishing and BunMo unveiled a line of toys from their multi-product deal between the digital-first studio and digital-first toy company. The product includes 5-Minute Crafts and 123 GO! branded fidget, magnet and sensory toys which are available starting on the BunMo Amazon store.

By combining our strengths, our partnerships will connect our audience with our merchandise in ways no digital-first content creator has ever done before.”
