It was close till the end, but the winner of the hashtag poll is…#SomethingTrulyMagical! Yay! 😀 Now it’s time to put it to work! Let’s get this campaign started!
Some of you have been asking how to contact these companies. Here’s the info you need! I’ll keep it in an easy-to-find location (the header menu) so you can look at it whenever you need to.
We need to show Nick how big and passionate the Winx fanbase really is. Our hope is if we prove the show has a lot of love, they’ll wanna support it like they used to — more advertising, more merchandise, and a consistent airing schedule (on TV). And if they’ve decided not to air season seven in the U.S., let’s change their minds!
Nick’s publicists for Winx Club are Katelyn Balach (New York office) and Elizabeth Cain (California office):
Remember: keep your message short and be polite. They’re not our enemies, and we’re not making demands. We’re just telling them how much we love this show.
You can’t use the hashtag in your email, but you could slip in the words “something truly magical.” They could be your subject line (your email might get deleted, though 😛 ). It’s up to you how you do it. (But don’t link to the campaign. That’d be a bit tacky. 😛 )
Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.):
If you don’t wanna make something, you could just share your thoughts on Nick’s Facebook or Twitter. Just put #SomethingTrulyMagical at the end — or work it into the message if you want. Again, it’s your choice!
Note: this is also a quick way to send them your fan art, fan fic, photo, video, etc. All you have to do is share the link!

Got something physical you wanna send? A letter? Jewelry? Cookies shaped like fairy wings? 😛 Mail it to their New York address:

The “Bloomix Power” line has just been released, and the Mythix line is coming soon. If you love the JAKKS dolls (I sure do), now’s the time to show your support for them! That means:
- Buying them, of course!
- Telling other fans about them
- Asking JAKKS to keep making Winx dolls!
Here’s an idea (if you wanna do it): JAKKS made a YouTube playlist of fan videos that feature the dolls. Make a video of your dolls and ask them to add it to their playlist!
The best way to reach them is through their customer service email: [email protected]. They’re pretty good about responding. Again, keep your message short and be polite.
Also, follow the instructions on their customer service page:
Please be sure to include your name, address, phone number and email address so we may contact you. If you are under 13 years of age, please have your parent contact us and provide this information.
*UPDATE 2* We could also try Anne-Marie Feliciano, the head of JAKKS’s Corporate Communications department. She’s in charge of spreading the word about their toys. Her address is [email protected].
Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.):
JAKKS updates their social media accounts often, so these are good places to reach them, too. They don’t tend to respond to Winx fans, but if a lot of us post, we’ll get their attention!

JAKKS’s mailing address is:
JAKKS Pacific, Inc.
21749 Baker Parkway
Walnut, CA 91789
Follow the same instructions as for email: include your contact info so they can respond to you. (Have a parent or guardian send them your info if you’re under 13. It keeps JAKKS out of legal trouble. 🙂 )
Everything we’re doing is to help them. The more we support their show, the better they’ll be able to negotiate with Nick and JAKKS (or other companies if things don’t work out). Let’s tell them how much Winx Club means to us!
Easier said than done, though. We could post on the Winx Facebook, but the staff never responds— and there’s too much spam on there. Rainbow’s Facebook is dead, and they don’t have a Twitter.
*UPDATE* A few more email addresses to try! These are from Rainbow’s contact page:
- General Info: [email protected]
- TV Sales & Distribution: [email protected]
- Licensing: [email protected]
*UPDATE 3* This might be a long shot, but how about sending a message through the contact form on Iginio Straffi’s website? It’s worth a try!
THE OTHER HALF OF THE CAMPAIGN
If we wanna convince Nick and JAKKS to support Winx Club, we have to support it, too. Watch the episodes on TV and Nick.com. Buy them on iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play. Download the apps. Buy the dolls, games, and DVDs. Let’s do everything we can to get the ratings and sales up and draw attention to the show!
Ready, Winx fans? Let’s do this!
