The company's Pom Pom Wow and Orbeez brands serve as the inspiration for two captivating gowns to be showcased within the event.
Maya Toys' marketing team designed the gowns to capture the essence of the respective brands. The Pom Wow design represents the current popularity of pom-poms. "We decorated the Pom Pom Wow gown with actual product, applying thousands of pom-poms to the clothing, "said Jennifer Strick, director of marketing for Maya Toys.
