Wicked Cool Toys Partners with CozyPhones - Top Selling Kids’ Headphones!
Super Comfortable 3-in-1 Headphones, Sleep Mask and Headband with Kid Safe Volume Control

Bristol, PA – February 17, 2018 – Wicked Cool Toys is excited to partner with Halo Acoustic Wear on the #1 selling kids’ headphone brand on Amazon: CozyPhones™. Wicked Cool will bring to market the innovative, 3-in-1 CozyPhones headphones, sleep mask and stylish headband for children with new licenses and retail expansion in summer 2018.

Selling over 220,000 units last year, CozyPhones groundbreaking design provides hours of listening enjoyment for children at home or on the go. No more struggling with ill-fitting (or lost) earbuds and bulky over-the-ear headphones! The comfort-fit headband is wide and lightweight for a secure fit, and is also a wonderful solution for children with sensory issues and special needs. CozyPhones are great for travel, as the ultra-thin 1/8" speakers lay flat in the headband providing total comfort in the car and on airplanes. Another plus? The speakers are easy to remove making the headband completely washable!

“Young children are consuming content on all screens, and these CozyPhones headphones from Halo Acoustic Wear are a great solution for them. The soft, adjustable headband stays comfortably on small heads, while protecting their ears from listening too loudly,” said Jeremy Padawer, Co-President of Wicked Cool Toys.  “Plus,” added Michael Rinzler, Co-President of Wicked Cool Toys, “they’ll love wearing their favorite characters when they rock out to music, or watch their favorite shows. We can’t wait to bring them to a wider audience this year and beyond.” 

Original Styles

The original styles feature popular favorites, including a Fox, Frog, Panda, and the beloved Unicorn. All CozyPhones have adjustable and removable ultra-thin 1/8" speakers that are nestled within a soft and stretchy lightweight fleece headband for a snug, secure and comfortable fit for most head sizes. A built-in volume control feature limits the volume to 90 dB, giving parents peace of mind that their child’s hearing is protected. Also included is a durable 52” braided cable and standard 3.5 mm stereo plug that will not kink, tangle or twist. Ages 4+, SRP: $19.99
