Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Dapper Labs, the company behind CryptoKitties and NBA Top Shot, and Tibles, a first-mover NFT collectibles startup, announced that they have brought the iconic and whimsical world of Seuss to the Flow blockchain with the launch of Seussibles. Seussibles is a digital experience for mobile and web that gives fans, for the very first time, the opportunity to own non-fungible tokens (NFTs) of their favorite Dr. Seuss characters including The Cat in The Hat, the Lorax, the Grinch, and Horton. Inside Seussibles, fans will be able to acquire and trade Seuss NFTs as well as connect with other fans and show off their collections. The experience is available today to fans ages 18+ for iOS and on web, coming soon.
Seussibles is much more than an NFT storefront. It’s a place for Dr. Seuss lovers to fully express their fandom within the digital realm and it’s simple to use, even for those who have never collected NFTs before. Drawing on the idea of the sticker collections we used to have during childhood, the new experience is designed to hit the right balance of nostalgia and discovery in an innovative, new digital format. Fans can start off by visiting the shop to purchase NFTs, which come in blind five-packs starting at $4.99 (US). Once fans have checked their pack they can view their new acquisitions in virtual sticker books and place them on the wall in their “Room,” where other users can see their collection. Fans can also join the “Clubhouse” to chat with other fans about collectibles, visit “Trading” to barter and swap collectibles, and showcase and share their favorites on social media.
“We are always looking for new ways for fans to immerse themselves in the iconic Dr. Seuss characters they love. More people than ever are building collections in the digital world and it seemed like a natural next step for us to collaborate with Dapper Labs and Tibles on this endeavor. We want to meet our fans where they are, and we’re excited to have our line-up of NFTs very accessible to everyone,” said Susan Brandt, President of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
To start, fans will have the opportunity to purchase more than 600 collectibles featuring fan favorites from The Cat in The Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, Green Eggs and Ham, Fox in Socks, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, Horton Hears a Who!, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, The Lorax, Hop on Pop, and Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?. All NFTs are stored on the Flow blockchain and early next year, fans will have the opportunity to buy and sell their collectibles on a secondary peer-to-peer web-based marketplace.
“We’re thrilled to work with great partners like Tibles to launch unique NFT experiences that give consumers a new way to engage with their favorite brands,” said Caty Tedman, Head of Partnerships at Dapper Labs. “We look forward to watching Dr. Seuss fans experience the joy of collecting NFTs on Flow while connecting with other fans to show off their collections.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Dr. Seuss and Dapper labs on Seussibles!” said Erich Wood, CEO of Tibles. “The wonderful artwork and stories of Dr. Seuss, the collector-first experience of the Tibles platform, and the ease, speed, and affordability of the Flow blockchain make for a special experience that can bring new users into the NFT collecting space. And the Lorax would be happy to see how environmentally friendly the Flow blockchain is.”
