“I’m not the best artist. I’m terrible,” Jackson Aw said with a sheepish laugh.

That might sound ironic, considering the 32-year-old is the founder and CEO of Mighty Jaxx, a designer toy company in Singapore.

But for Aw, acknowledging his own shortcomings helped him turn his startup into a multimillion-dollar international toy company.

“It’s that realization that…I should choose people who are way smarter than me. I collaborate with them and I work with them,” he told CNBC Make It.

“If this artist has dedicated his career to building this craft, then he’s better than I could ever be.”

How it all began

Mighty Jaxx, which was founded in 2012, has partnered with some of the biggest global brands and visual artistsproducing on-trend collectibles that incorporate pop culture and design.

Since then, he’s sold “millions” of collectible toys to people in more than 80 countries, Aw said.

It all started when he started watching many “how it’s done videos” on YouTube, which he found “fascinating”.

I thought there would only be a few spitting machines (toys). And that was frankly very naive.

Founder, Mighty Jaxx

“These videos that tell you how chicken nuggets are made, like how hot dogs are made… the process behind it. Watching them, I looked at my shelf of collectibles that I have “, did he declare.

“Could I create something physical, with my own hands and make it?”

Aw, who has been an avid toy collector since he was 17, decided to book a one-way flight to Shenzhen, China, where he visited factories to learn about the toy production process.

His curiosity quickly turned to amazement, as he learned techniques such as hand carving and casting.

“I thought there would only be a few machines spitting (toys). And that was honestly very naive,” he said.

“I was shocked when I saw hundreds of people…crafting and painting on this one item, on what our perception will be a mass product.”

Inspired by what he saw in China, Jackson returned home after a month to create his own designer toy with a Singaporean graffiti artist, clogtwo.

It’s like we never felt that fear again. So we took the money, and we drove (with it).

Jackson Aw

Founder, Mighty Jaxx

Together they created Mighty Jaxx’s first collectible, the “Hell Lotus”. With the help of a $20,000 loan, he produced 200 pieces of the toy, which he launched at the Singapore Comic Convention in 2012.

Aw sold the inventory in six months and there was no turning back. “It’s like we never felt that fear again. So we took the money and rolled it.”

big cut

Over the years, Mighty Jaxx has continued to partner with visual artists around the world to create unique, limited-edition collectibles while remaining “cash flow positive,” Aw said.

“We only took outside money much later,” he added.

The tide really turned for the company in 2015, when Aw entered into its first licensing partnership with Warner Brothers’ DC Comics.

He remembers sending an e-mail to Julian Montoya – who was Warner Brothers’ Global Vice President of Toys at the time – on a whim, hoping to “makeover” Warner Brothers creative intellectual property like DC Comics characters.

After Mighty Jaxx entered into its first licensing partnership with Warner Brothers’ DC Comics, the company earned $1.7 million in 2015, four times more than the previous year.

Mighty Jaxx

“His secretary replied, (saying) we have 30 minutes this Friday, you can come and chat with us.”

He flew to Burbank, California, where he showed Montoya potential designs and 3D prototypes of DC toys. “At the end, he was just, ‘Okay. We’re going to shake it off,'” Aw said.

“I walked out of the room, I thought, ‘No, this can’t be real.’ The next day they sent the contract and it was for a global deal.”

The deal, which Aw said was “a huge leap of faith” on Montoya’s part, quadrupled Mighty Jaxx’s revenue.

According to Aw, his company earned $1.7 million in 2015, four times more than the previous year.

“And that’s when, (I realised), damn it, something happens,” he said.

From DC to Netflix

Mighty Jaxx also produces blind boxes in collaboration with Jason Freeny, known for his anatomical art.

He teamed up with American designer Jason Freeneywhich is known for its anatomical art.

“We’ve applied it to a lot of our licensing partners and they all love it because it’s such an alternative take on things…And now it’s become a baseline for us.”

Aw is a keen eye for what’s trendy certainly paid off. According to Mighty Jaxx, the company’s revenue grew at a compound rate of 71% from 2019 to 2021.

To date, Mighty Jaxx has raised approximately $40 million, valuing the company at over $200 million. Its investors include Chinese conglomerate Tencent, KB Investment and East Ventures.

Aw also made for Forbes ranking of 30 under 30 in Asia list in 2018, at the age of 28.

Jackson Aw’s advice to young entrepreneurs? “Fear will always exist. But the question is, what do you think?”

Kavita Garg, Co-Secretary of the Ayush Ministry, said: “Over the past two years, children have experienced high levels of stress and lived sedentary lifestyles, making it imperative to help them get back on track. their routine and to instill positive energy through the power of yoga. We’re extremely pleased with Nickelodeon’s year-over-year initiative to help toddlers instill healthy habits at a young age through innovative formats. We truly believe our association with Nickelodeon will truly help children understand the essence of balance in human relationships through yoga, leveraging the affinity of their favorite Nicktoons!

James Maslow has been on screens for over a decade now since his first role as Shane on the Nickelodeon series iCarly. Following this with a role as James Diamond in Big time Rush, also from Nickelodeon, with later music videos later, Maslow has since carved out a place for himself as a leading man in the industry today. Some of his latest include Gamblers Comedy We need to talk where he plays the role of a celebrity game reviewer on YouTube, and Dog wolf in which he plays a soldier who must protect America from Nazi Germany. The latter piques some of his aspirations for the trajectory of his career.

In a previous interview with Movieweb for Dog wolfMaslow was asked about his love for action movies, as it’s a lesser-known genre for him. Often Maslow works on comedies and, of course, his early work with Nickelodeon.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

What kid watches an action movie and says, ‘That doesn’t look fun.’

James Maslow on working on action films

During our interview, Maslow expressed interest in exploring the action genre further. “Absolutely, it’s exactly the type of role I’ve always wanted to do,” he said, referring to Dog wolf. “What kid watches an action movie and says, ‘That doesn’t look fun.’ No, we are monitoring it [the action star] and go, ‘I could do that’ [laughs]. ‘How sick would that be?’ And that little child still lives in me today. So I really, really love this medium and I absolutely want to continue it, and you know, knock on wood, this project just engenders more and more of the same vein.

Continuing in the same vein is well suited, given Maslow’s well-tempered performance and his run. “This action stuff was interesting and a bit difficult for me because I grew up shooting. My dad was a champion shooter. So I have a lot of experience in guns. I grew up doing martial arts and to this day I do boxing and Muay Thai every week. But Captain David Holden would have had the bare minimum of that kind of training. He was a pilot. Pilots don’t plan on getting shot…so we’re trying to make that as realistic as possible…it shouldn’t be played like a Navy SEAL in that role.It wasn’t his training…and I think we struck a good balance.

Maslow did all his own stunts in Wolf Hound

Dog wolf is filled with fights and explosions that would often require a stuntman to replace him. While it’s not uncommon for actors to do their own stunts, it’s certainly an impressive feat. Some of those who have accomplished this in the past are Tom Cruise (Maslow noted that he would take that comparison), Charlize Theron, Jason Statham, Keanu Reeves, Harrison Ford, and now Maslow’s entry.

“He did all his stunts in this movie. And that’s rare, I think for any actor, especially the main man. But every jump, every fireball right behind him, everything on planes, everything this is real. It’s all him, so I take my hat off to him for that,” commented Michael B. Chait, director of Dog wolf.

Dog wolf also stars Trevor Donovan and John Turk, and is co-written by Timothy Ritchey. It was released in select theaters from June 3, 2022 and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 12. possible,” Maslow said, speaking of his hopes for audience reception.

Maslow’s upcoming projects include romantic comedy The stars have fallen againand the family movie Holiday twistwhich are not in the vein of the action, however, Black sky was announced, a sci-fi action-horror film also starring Colleen Camp and Selene Luna. According production list, the project’s synopsis reads, “The world’s financial institutions have collapsed and the world as we knew it no longer exists. Wars have destroyed great cities and dangerous mutated creatures are killing everyone on their A small group of humans holed up at a motel/rest stop in the desert are fighting for their survival.” Maslow will play Bolton’s character in the film.

This article is the first in a series by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine to celebrate 30 MOAe birthday. Join us as we go through some of our favorite memories from the past 30 years.

Some say it takes a brave parent to venture into Mall of America with the sole intention of guiding the little ones in your life through the Heart of the Beast, otherwise known as the Nickelodeon Universe. But we see you, dear parents, and we salute you. The memories your kids will make of the bounty of the rides and the smiles you’ll catch while doing it are all worth it. But first, to understand the grandeur of a theme park right in the center of our nation’s largest mall, it’s important to grasp its history and understand how clever and utterly unique this outing is. for you and your children.

Let’s start at the beginning.

Knott’s Camp Snoopy

When construction began on the Mall of America, organizers turned to local comic book artist Charles M. Schulz Peanuts characters as the basis for the seven-acre theme park. The park was designed in a wooded spirit, with Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and Lucy. After more than a decade of rides spotlighting the charming white dog, his lovable but uncertain owner, and all manner of comedic entertainment, the mall parted ways with the franchise in 2006. (Cedar Fair, a company based in Ohio, which operates theme parks nationwide, holds the exclusive rights to use Peanuts characters and failed to reach a new deal at the end of their contract.)

A new name

The mall renamed the area “The Park at MOA” until 2008 when it was renamed Nickelodeon Universe. And what a successful rebrand it was. Cue the orange! Characters! Mud ! Now known to kids and parents alike, the powerful and entertaining space features all the variety of characters kids love – Paw Patrol, SpongeBob, Bubble Guppies, Dora, and more – with a mix of new rides and a refresh of many iconic originals. With an average of around 8.5 million rides per year, it’s no wonder that a specific plan is almost a necessity to reach all the attractions the notoriously fun theme park has to offer.

Now here are our tips for a successful Nickelodeon Universe adventure…

Plan ahead

It might seem obvious, but knowing which rides you want to do will make the whole park feel less overwhelming. Thrill-seekers won’t want to miss the Spongebob Squarepants Rock Bottom Plunge, which features a 90-degree climb followed by loops, twists, and free-fall turns. The more cautious should try the Pepsi Orange Streak, which still offers the novelty of a rollercoaster ride in a mall, but doesn’t offer the same drops and flips as Spongebob. Meanwhile, little ones can lay their eyes on the Guppy Bubbler for fun as it floats up to the mall’s ceiling.

Tuesdays are a great day to visit if you have a toddler, as the mall celebrates Toddler Tuesdays at 11am. This weekly event includes free entertainment and the occasional but oh so exciting character appearance, so you won’t want to miss it. . As a bonus for your patience, discounts aimed at toddlers and their caregivers are available.

By planning ahead, you can also determine if an all-day wristband is a more economical option than just buying individual passes. Most rides cost between three and six points.

We also suggest you nominate what other kid-friendly attractions in the mall — think the Crayola Experience and the Lego Store — pique your interest so you can allocate your time accordingly.

To make sure your plan isn’t upset, the mall also issues a maintenance schedule for when each ride is shut down for repairs and fine-tuning. Check it out to make sure you (and your kids!) aren’t taken by surprise.

Coordinate a meeting place

Losing a child is every parent’s worst nightmare. Luckily, the mall has phones throughout the facility that connect directly to security, so help is just a phone call away. Nickelodeon Universe also has a circular shape in the center of the mall, so it’s harder to lose your bearings. However, if you have a wanderer, and many parents do, it’s wise to have a pre-determined meeting place.

The Carousel ride is an oldie but a well-known goodie. He’s also in plain sight, making him easy to spot if you lose team members. One last bonus: it’s a great photo op, so once you’re together you can smile in relief for the cameras.

Check the senses

The rides, lights, noise and mayhem are all part of the amusement park package, but the mall is also a very sensory destination for all families. It is the first place in Minnesota to become a Certified Autism Center, which means its staff and surroundings are equipped to provide families with children with autism and other sensory disabilities an enjoyable visit. Each park attraction has an overview of how a child with sensory processing issues may be affected, so be sure to check the scale and see how you and your family might be affected.

Discuss rides (and height requirements) ahead of time

No kid likes being told they’re too small, so if your kid sets out to ride the tallest, meanest, craziest roller coaster – only to find out on top of file that they are too small – collapses can abound. Instead, take a look at this listing and determine in advance which rides are best suited to your child’s height and abilities. Then, spend the days leading up to your adventure as the fashionable man of this ride. Bad surprises avoided, good surprises celebrated. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Snack afterwards!

Mall of America staff know how to clean up quickly when a kid throws their cookies. (We speak from experience.) But if stomach upset can be avoided, it’s certainly advisable. As the delicious scent of cookies from the Nestle Toll House Café wafts over the park and snack kiosks dot the outskirts, we suggest a promised treat to end your Nickelodeon adventure. Did someone say Sugar Factory? Alternatively, try the old adage of swimming and avoid rides for half an hour after eating. The kids will have plenty of time to digest and you might be able to score a few extra minutes of shopping.

Reward yourself

If you’re resting on one of the park’s many benches while your little ones tackle Adventure Bay with the Paw Patrol, see if you can get your hands on a map of the mall and pick which store is home to the wonderful gift of your future- you will acquire to be the first rate parent that you are. Consider it an added bonus.

If Big E’s latest Instagram Story is any indication of how his recovery is going, things seem to be looking up for the former WWE Champion.

Earlier today, E posted a clip to his Instagram story that shows a neck brace thrown into an open trash can. The brace collides with an empty plastic jug, food preparation container, and other trash before coming to rest on top.

It’s been just over 3 months since E broke his neck in a tag team match on WWE “SmackDown”. The March 11, 2022 edition of The Blue Brand saw The New Day’s Kofi Kingston & Big E take on The Brawling Brutes’ Ridge Holland & Sheamus when, during a belly-to-belly suplex outside Holland’s ring at E, Big E landed on his neck and was immediately taken care of by WWE medics.

In a video posted the next morning by the upbeat WWE star, E quoted that his “C1 and C6 [were] indeed fractured, no displacement though which is a very good thing. And I have no damage to my spinal cord, no ligament damage and no surgery which I am very grateful for.

It was also noted in a report at the time of the injury that “several” WWE roster members came to visit Big E in the hospital after he was admitted, including Ridge Holland. Although he’s been away from active competition, E has kept busy by attending NHL playoff games and was also featured on the Nickelodeon Show, “Side Hustle,” a project he starred on before the injury.

The full video of Big E’s neck brace thrown in the trash visible on this link. A still from the video is below:

You may have heard that a certain theme park is celebrating its 50th anniversary. No, we’re not talking about Walt Disney World this time. Kings Island located in Mason, Ohio, just outside of Cincinnati, just turned 50 in April.

Over the years, Kings Island has become one of the best amusement parks in the United States. Let’s take a look at some of the history of Kings Island, what makes it a world-class destination today, and the celebration offerings you can experience as Kings Island hosts its Golden Celebration all summer long. .

A short story

Image: Island of the Kings

Kings Island first opened on April 29, 1972, following the temporary closure of the iconic Coney Island. When it opened it was owned by Taft Broadcasting Company. The park featured a legendary coaster, The Racer. The coaster was the first modern twin wooden coaster and it still works today. Guests were greeted by the iconic icon of the Kings Islands, the blue Eiffel Tower which is a one-third replica of the Paris landmark and also appears at Kings Dominion. It also included a Hanna-Barbera-themed land with a Scooby-Doo roller coaster. Additionally, a themed land to pay homage to the Big Island of Coney was included in the park, as many rides from Coney Island were transported and set up at Kings Island.

A lot has changed since the park opened 50 years ago. The park has added many amazing attractions. When the park opened, it included 60 attractions, and now Kings Island has over 100 attractions. Some have been hits like the record breaking The Beast which opened in 1979. These wooden roller coasters continue to be the longest wooden roller coasters and still delight fans. Personally, these are my favorite wooden roller coaster that I have ridden. Other attractions have been notorious failures like the Son of Beast roller coaster which opened in 2000 and seems to have been ahead of its time and plagued with problems during its 9 years of operation. Year after year, Kings Island has continued to grow and add to its impressive line-up. In 1989, a water park was also added next to the park, formerly called WaterWorks.

The beast

The park has also changed ownership over the years. Paramount purchased Kings Island in 1992 and many attraction names reflected this change. The roller coaster line included Top Gun and Face/Off and a Nickelodeon themed kids area. However, the names of the rides changed again when Cedar Fair bought Paramount Parks in 2006 for $1.25 billion and thus acquired Kings Island, Kings Dominion, Carowinds, Great America (now California’s Great America), and Canada’s Wonderland.

Coasters like Top Gun and Face/Off were renamed The Bat and Invertigo respectively, and the Nickelodeon area was renamed Peanuts. When this change happened, it was actually the first time in the park’s history that it no longer included a Scooby-Doo-themed attraction. In 2012, the water park known as Boomerang Bay at the time was also renamed Soak City and received significant upgrades.

The greatness of Kings Island continued…

VIDEO OF THE DAY

I think one of the things about Avatar, I mean obviously they keep the fans of the original anime series, you know damn well, they’re aware of them. But it really is, because it’s an adaptation, it’s about growing that audience. And I think it will be targeted, I mean the main characters are [all youths], so I think it’s young audiences, teens, tweens for sure. I think it might be a bit too intense for younger kids. But I also see that you know that it is accessible to adults. Fans, like I’m a fan of the show and would totally watch it, and I’m almost 50. I think it’s very broad. I think even though the Nickelodeon cartoon, its animated version, was really aimed at younger audiences that didn’t mean older audiences couldn’t enjoy it, I think they’re making it a bit more mature in this sense, so it’s not for little kids, and I think that’s part of growing that audience. And I think a lot of fans of the anime series, I think they’ll be very, very happy with what they see because there’s a definite respect for the source material.
