SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Afterpay, the leading 'Buy Now, Pay Later' platform, is launching the Impossible Gift Finder, hosted by the ultimate, impossible-to-find holiday gift from the late-90's, Furby. For a limited-time this December, shoppers can turn to Furby, the iconic brand from Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), to get expert gifting advice on what to buy for the most impossible people on their shopping list this season.

The holiday shopping season is a stressful time of the year - especially when it comes to gift giving. Recent research from Afterpay shows that one in four people feel stressed or overwhelmed by spending money at this time of year. Knowing this, Afterpay and Furby will offer consumers the opportunity to discover great gift ideas from the best retailers - allowing shoppers to celebrate that feeling of crossing off the last gift of their holiday shopping list. Consumers can get gifting advice from Furby in real-time through Afterpay's TikTok comments from December 7 through 12 and shop for them in four interest-free installments via Afterpay1.

Casey Collins, GM & SVP, Global Licensed Consumer Products at Hasbro said, "We're excited to give our classic brand, Furby, a fun comeback through our collaboration with Afterpay. This holiday season, consumers can interact with Furby like never before by having the iconic furry friend help them make gift-buying a whole lot easier."

Geoff Seeley, Global CMO of Afterpay said, "This holiday season, Afterpay is removing the stress for shoppers and delivering a bit of joy with the one and only Furby - the hottest toy from the late 90's - all available to consumers on TikTok.  It's a fun and festive way to shop, motivating people to conquer their holiday shopping lists while spending responsibly with Afterpay."
