Back in May 2022, we shared a feature about Paramount.xyz and their first NFT project, StarTrek.xyz. In a partnership with web3 studio Recur, Paramount.xyz has begun its mission of bringing the studio’s beloved entertainment characters into the metaverse. Recur is now tapping into other beloved entertainment brands, encouraging multiple generations of fans to buy, collect, and trade NFTs as digital collectibles based on childhood favorites. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, we are introducing you to three of Recur studio’s latest NFT projects: Nickelodeon.xyz, CareBears.xyz, and HelloKittyFrens.xyz.

Interested buyers can visit Nickelodeon’s Marketplace tab, where the debut collection “Nickelodeon: Rugrats & Hey Arnold!” has generated over 1,700 ETH ($2.9 million) in total volume on leading NFT marketplace OpenSea (as of July 29, 2022).1 On August 2, 2022, Nickelodeon.xyz shared a collection of the statistics from the successful project, including its ranking as the #1 Trending Collection on OpenSea.2 Each unique NFT has a slime score, which ranks it by rarity compared to the rest of the NFTs in the collection. Nickelodeon NFT holders can earn slime by trading in their NFTs. The more slime you hold, the closer you grow to earning the new Mashup NFTs, which combine features of existing characters to create brand new ones. Grammy-nominated DJ and fellow .xyz community member Steve Aoki (a0k1verse.xyz) worked with Recur to introduce the new characters in a new theme song and accompanying music video. You can learn more about the Mashup NFT collection, and all upcoming launches, by following along on Twitter and by visiting Nickelodeon.xyz.
CareBears.xyz is the online home of Care Bears Forever, an NFT collection and metaverse experience commemorating the popular Cloudco Entertainment brand’s 40th anniversary. CareBears.xyz is designed as an active and inclusive community platform that encourages members to join together and explore the web3 space.
On August 4, 2022, the platform launched a collection of 10,000 NFTs of the original characters that provide access to the Care Bears Forever game. These iconic characters, who now have a new look for their NFT debut, include: Cheer Bear, Good Luck Bear, Bedtime Bear, Friend Bear, and Tenderheart Bear. The NFT experience is also introducing some never-before-discovered Care Bears, such as Self Care Bear. The Care Bears Forever game involves sharing, and is aptly named Sharing is Caring. Players can head over to the Challenges page to share their Care Bears Forever NFT with another player. In doing so, they will be rewarded with a new gift locked inside a virtual Mystery Chest. The gift remains a mystery until the challenge is complete. You can learn more by following along on Twitter and Instagram, and by exploring CareBears.xyz.
HelloKittyFrens.xyz is the online home of Hello Kitty and Friends World, a globe-trotting NFT adventure featuring six Hello Kitty characters who can travel to eight different cities around the world. Hello Kitty and Friends World aims to bring the friendship and community of the beloved characters to the NFT space. Fans can collect Hello Kitty characters and earn new digital collectibles by completing challenges as they virtually travel around the world.
The collection of 10,000 NFTs launched on August 25, 2022. The NFTs serve as a ticket to play the Hello Kitty and Friends World game. As detailed on the How it Works page, players can purchase a suitcase pack from the Marketplace for $100. Each suitcase contains a Sanrio character NFT that will serve as your player. There are six characters in total, including Keroppi, Kuromi, and My Melody. There will be two sets of challenges creating an opportunity to travel to eight different cities around the globe. At each destination you can collect special Stamp NFTs to demonstrate your progress. Stamps can be Premium, Rare, or Ultra-Rare, and if you collect three matching Stamps you can exchange them for a surprise. Stamps can be bought or resold with other players on the marketplace. Beginning in October 2022, players will be able to swap their Stamps for special city Snapshots, which are NFT accessories that can be used to decorate their character NFTs with a fresh look from their travels. Players can always decide it’s time to start using a new character, and can sell their existing NFT included with the city Snapshots they have collected. This way, even if a player isn’t able to visit a certain city themselves, they can always buy a character who has visited that destination and unlocked a Snapshot. You can learn more and start your travels by visiting HelloKittyFrens.xyz.
