Wyncor’s first patented products to market include:

  • Miraball™, a collectible toy that features three “Little but Legendary” surprises for below $10. Boasting new patented technology, the 2¾-inch diameter colorful blind pack ball reveals three secrets. Under the wrap is a vibrantly painted metal dangler ball. When the ball is popped open, a large hidden plushy charm expands to over 4 inches in diameter, thanks to the innovation of a new ultra-shrinkable memory foam plush.
  • Magic ReClay™️ is the first toy compound that transforms from a solid state to a fluid state again and again—at a temperature that meets safety standards.. ReClay becomes smooth and soft in warm water and is ready to be shaped into an endless array of creations, mixing with a child’s favorite colors and cured within minutes into a hard and durable item. Creations may be displayed, worn, or shared… or… put back into the warm water to make something completely new! The product launches with four Magic ReClay packs with two colors each, figurine molds of favorite characters, and a starter kit. 
  • SwopPop (patent filed), a fashion-forward line of unique “minipop” bags that are fully customizable and interchangeable with a wide range of SWOPs—handles, straps, ears, and figurines; and POPs, badges that clip on with the small pop sound. All Swops and Pops come in unique stackable and reusable transparent PopBoxes. The SwopPop range includes Swops and Pops for the PopBear, PopBunny, PopBat and the PopGiraffe. 
  • Mon Ami (French for “my friend”), a range of 9½-inch glossy and glittery-eyed animal friends that feature uniquely tooled 3D and 3-layer resin eyes, 3D eyelashes, and a stitched badge for authenticity. Choose wisely – choose your spirit BFF. The first Mon Ami range, Mon Ami Kwamis, feature the Kwamis from Miraculous™ and launched fall 2023 reaching the top 30 products on Amazon within the first month. The Spring 2024 line features some of today’s most popular animals including the axolotl, blue-ringed octopus, bat, penguin, narwhal, and deer, with their sparkling eyes and lashes.
  • OozySqueezy is a sensory surprise in five ranges: OozySqueezy – Extra Pleazy! Each series has a range of four unique OozySqueezy’s to collect. They come in a range of fortune cookie-shaped blindpacks. Each range has a unique, rich, and luxurious texture, with additional fun features across the line. “Ghosties” glow-in-the-dark; “Super Scented Fruities” are scented; “Double Dino Surprise” stays true to its name; “Solar System Stardust” has glittery stars filling; and “Miraculous™” is a range of fully colored OozySqueezy’s in the shape of your favorite heroes.
