The Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest will feature “never-before-seen content and product reveals,” the company says. The virtual event will take place April 9 at 11 a.m. ET on the Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest website and live on the Hasbro Pulse YouTube channel, in lieu of the company’s annual entertainment brand preview event normally held during New York Toy Fair (which was canceled this year because of COVID).
