Hilo mom Kim Gitzel noticed something was missing when she went shopping for her 6 year old daughter Grace.
“There were no girl super-hero brands that were truly inspirational out there,” she says.
So instead of agonizing on buying something she didn’t like, she had an idea – to create her own super-hero action brand that girls of all ages could connect with and aspire to. She created Sirenz of Truth: The Wheeled Warriors (SOT): “SOT represents strong, empowered, athletic girls who have deep friendships, a team bond, and super-hero powers that they use to fight for Truth, protect their community and the world!”
Kim partnered with toy industry vet Caryl Liebmann of Liebmann Licensing to take this brand to the world.
“I met Kim and got that feeling in the pit of my stomach that told me Sirenz of Truth (SOT) was a winner. It’s just what the industry is missing – strong, realistic role models for girls!” Liebman says. “We have designed SOT for an animated TV series, with merchandise to include toys, games, electronics, apparel and much more.”
Now, Kim is reaching out to her local community to help support her endeavor. She has created an Indiegogo campaign (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sirenz-of-truth-the-wheeled-warriors#/story) where the community can be part of the process and help fund the development of an animated show: “With your donation, you not only become a Wheeled Warrior yourself, but you also help fund the first episode!”
Sirenz of Truth will be attending Hawaii Con 2015 on September 10th-13th, held at The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. The community is invited to meet Kim, learn more about the brand and get firsthand information on how to get involved.
