Silver Spring, Md. and Los Angeles, CA, March 4, 2015 – Discovery Family, the smart entertainment choice for families, and Hasbro Studios are excited to announce supermodel, actress, television host, producer, designer and entrepreneur Heidi Klum as a special guest on its two-part finale for season three of Littlest Pet Shop, airing Saturday, March 7 at LittlestPetShopKlune1noon and 12:30 PM ET.

 

Klum enters the Littlest Pet Shop as one of Blythe’s newest friends, a high-energy day camper named Lady Yodely of the Heidi, who has a strong passion for yodeling. In voicing the role, Klum admitted to being very similar to her character and enjoyed getting to exercise her vocal talents with a variety of surprising performances.

 

In the two-part finale, Lady Yodely of the Heidi (or Heidi to her friends) just happens to be the canine companion of Jason, the lead singer of the world-famous band The Soul Patches. The pup plays a pivotal role in helping Blythe convince the band to perform at her Pet Fest, a fundraising event for the Endangered Animals Fund that celebrates the treasured relationships of people and their pets.

“I was really excited to be asked to voice one of the little animals on Littlest Pet Shop,” Klum said. “My kids and I are all excited to watch this episode!”

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
