Walmart’s extensive retail network will soon stock an assortment of 26 Pudgy Toys — comprising Plush Buddies, Clip-on Plushes, Igloo Collectibles, and Action Figures.
Shoppers will also have the opportunity to explore exclusive Pudgy Penguin products available only within Walmart’s aisles. These exclusives include Ice Chrome and Gold Chrome collectible figures offered in Igloo containers, along with a Blind Box housing a surprise Clip-On Plush character.
These toys feature unique traits drawn from the intellectual property of some of the most popular NFT collections — including Meebits, DeGods, and others.
Each physical toy — ranging in price from $2.99 to $11.97 — is accompanied by a “birth certificate” and a QR code. This QR code, when scanned, grants users access to claim distinctive traits for their digital Forever Pudgy character and entry into the immersive Pudgy World.
The Pudgy World, launched in 2021, offers a captivating multiplayer digital environment powered by zkSync Era, a Layer 2 blockchain solution. Within this digital realm, users can personalize their characters, explore, and engage in various games.
Pudgy Penguins made their debut in 2021, comprising a collection of 8,888 avatar NFTs portraying cartoon penguins and built on the Ethereum blockchain. The collection achieved a complete sellout within a mere 20 minutes of release.
Data from CoinMarketCap reveals that in the past 24 hours, the Pudgy Penguins NFT collection has surged to the third position among top NFT collections in terms of sales volume, amassing a staggering $1,059,358 in the past day.
