     According to Jackson Aw, the founder of Mighty Jaxx, designer toys fulfill the desire of today's youth to express their individuality through personalized and unique collectibles. These toys come in various forms and prices, ranging from affordable blind boxes to high-end collectibles crafted from premium materials like wood, bronze, and crystal.

     Licensing agreements with established intellectual properties (IPs) further enhance the market appeal of designer toys. Mighty Jaxx's partnership with Warner Bros' DC Comics boosted their revenue significantly. The company has also collaborated with other internationally recognized IPs like F1, Manchester City Football Club, One Piece, Stranger Things on Netflix, and My Little Pony.

    Looking ahead, digital collectibles are poised to become the next stage in this evolving market. Mighty Jaxx has already ventured into the digital realm with their Nyammy Treats-themed collection. However, physical products remain crucial as they provide tangible assets and experiences for collectors.
