BEVERLY, Mass. (PRWEB) June 25, 2013

FPgirl by FashionPlaytes (http://www.fashionplaytes.com) today announced it has teamed up with Tootsie Roll Industries to offer new embellishments girls are drooling over! Coming just in time for June’s National Candy Month, this new licensing agreement provides an opportunity for girls to celebrate a deliciously fun month by dressing up their outfits with exciting, new designs. The bright, fun and classic embellishments, exclusive to FPgirl, give Gen Z girls the opportunity to enhance their favorite tops and accessories with designs from their favorite candy brand.

Stemming from the feedback of the FPgirl community when asked about their favorite candy brands, the licensing agreement provides new embellishments to sweeten girls’ designs. Images include popular product lines from America’s favorite candy company, including Charms Blow Pops, DOTS gumdrops and Tootsie Roll Pops. Mouthwatering messages such as “Life is Sweet” and “Pop Stars!” round out the line, weaving in various candy brand images with pop culture and go-to girl phrases.

“Associating with FPgirl gives the Tootsie Roll brand the ability to connect with our younger fans who have a love for all things candy,” said Cynthia Hall Domine, President of Synchronicity and Licensing Agent for Tootsie Roll Industries. “It‘s exciting to engage with these girls as they incorporate our products into their one-of-a-kind fashion and accessory purchases.”

“The Tootsie brand is such a huge hit with our Gen Z girls,” said Sarah McIlroy, founder and president of FashionPlaytes. “The feedback we received from our FPgirl community proves that Tootsie is a hip and cool brand that resonates with the younger crowd of candy connoisseurs. We’ve seen a strong success in our girl-driven products and the licensing agreement with Tootsie is just another example at how brands can connect with the next-generation of consumers via the FPgirl community.”

With more designs and products coming down the road—including three charms shaped as a box of DOTS, Junior Mints and a Tootsie Roll— the current line of Tootsie embellishments is now available to add to garments and accessories on FPgirl.com.
