Founded in Feb. 2022, 42Shops is an online e-commerce company based in Beijing, China. Our main products are licensed plush toys, games and anime peripherals. Since our inception, we have shipped packages to over 50 countries and regions worldwide and received over 100 positive reviews (4.86 out of 5) from consumers who have a track record of making purchases. :)
Our main product - plush toys
Initially, our products came from Changed game-related characters, such as Puro, Tiger Shark, etc. Changed’s global audience loved the game but faced a challenging problem - purchasing plush toys from China’s Taobao website was complicated. We contacted DragonSnow, the developer of Changed. Because we respect intellectual property and are familiar with cross-border payments and logistics, we got DragonSnow to license Changed-related plush toys.
After Changed, we partnered with minidoll to license popular anime series such as MDZS and TGCF, including Xie Lian and Hua Cheng plush toys. We categorize these products as IP series.
As our business expands, we are increasingly aware that plush toys can grow with people and bring them a sense of joy and security. So we continued to expand our sales beyond the IP line to include general plush toys.
Why plush toys?
No child does not like plush toys. We often see a small child talking to a plush toy, reading it, and telling it a story. Children treat stuffed toys as good companions, take them with them when they go out, and sleep with their beloved stuffed toys to fall asleep. As we grow up, we face the pressure of school and work, and soft plush toys can always let us relax.
No matter what the place, the cultural background, or the age, we can not think of anything more popular than stuffed toys. Plush toys grow up with us, bringing us a sense of security and physical and mental pleasure. It puts us in a relaxed mood, and plush toys from games and anime can also be a source of spiritual sustenance. These are the reasons why we love plush toys.
We are committed to bringing China’s original plush toys to the world and hope they bring happiness to consumers worldwide. :)
Our founder, Emma, was inspired by her daughter’s plush toys after a frustrating career break. At the same time, Emma noticed how difficult it was for Changed players outside of China to purchase plush toys, so she founded 42Shops.
