The No. 1 kids beverage brand 1 is leveraging the already booming collectability trend of the toy industry. good2grow’s innovative line of 3D character tops will expand beyond the current SippaTop™ character tops to engage the middle-childhood segment of 7-12 years old who have potentially outgrown spill-proof tops. Contained in clear, stackable domes, PODZ will launch with highly detailed characters from DC Comics™, Marvel Comics™, Trolls™, Shopkinz™, My Little Pony™ and Minions™, with more characters added throughout the year.

“As children age, it’s no surprise that their interests change. A 4-year-old’s favorite TV show or movie is not going to be the same as their 7-year-old sibling,” says Gunnar Olson, president at good2grow. “In that same sense, we listened to families who say their older children are looking for things to collect, not for a character top to play with.”

The recently launched good2grow Collectors Club – already 40,000+ strong and growing – will allow club members to view the entire PODZ collection online at good2collect.com. Collectors Club members will also be able to enter their personal collection to access exclusive content and earn prizes.

With nothing artificial, non-GMO, and BPA free, the fun-to-drink Fortified Water promotes hydration and provides children with a good source of Vitamin D and Calcium and helps reinforce good dietary habits.
