With Moshi Monsters, children choose from one of six virtual pet monsters that they can create, name and nurture. Once the pet has been customized, players can navigate through Monstro City, play games, and communicate with friends.

Moshi Monsters has more than 50 million registered users worldwide, the companies say. The toys are intended for children aged 6 to 12.

"We're very excited to enter into a partnership with Mind Candy, the creators of such an engaging and fun online game world," Vic Bertrand, chief innovation officer of Mega Brands, said in the announcement.

"Moshi Monsters has really captured the hearts and imaginations of kids everywhere, and we look forward to bringing this world to life with a full range of toys that will encourage and reward creative expression."
