ADV Toys Starts Up With Jonathan Seal Plush

ADV Toys, the new division of A.D. Vision Inc. that creates exclusive toys and collectible merchandise based upon the companys film, manga and original content holdings, has signed its first toy deal, an exclusive Jonathan the Seal plush animal from the anticipated KALEIDO STAR anime series from ADV Films.

Jonathan the Seal first appears in KALEIDO STAR (which streets May 11, 2004) volume two, episode six: The Amazing Seal, when his endearing character saves the day and wins the heart of the KALEIDO STAR with his extraordinary juggling skills. After Jonathans appearance in episode six, his fuzzy joy continues for the remainder of the series.

Officially on sale this summer, the Jonathan the Seal plush will be available in a 5-inch size (SRP $7.99) and a 10.5-inch size (SRP $14.99).

Eat your heart out adorable! Thats how I describe the very first item to come out of ADV Toys, said John Ledford, president/ceo of A.D. Vision. To say we are excited about this new division would be an understatement. ADV Toys is simply a great example of how our customers benefit from our diverse offerings.
