8th Wonder to create new range of Go Jetters plush toys

Published on: 1st February 2019

BBC Studios has announced that 8th Wonder will create a complete range of plush and wooden toys for the hit show.

The plush toy range will feature all of the Go Jetters characters – Lars, Xuli, Foz, Kyan, Grandmaster Glitch and Ubercorn – and will be the biggest range of plush created for the show.

8th Wonder is also creating a range of wooden toys, which will include Go Jetters dominoes, a tumbling tower, Souvenir Selfie cube puzzle, a world map sound puzzle and a Stonehenge domino rally. The range will join those being created by 8th Wonder for Hey Duggee, Sarah & Duck and Mr Tumble for Something Special.

The Go Jetters plush and wooden toy ranges will hit the stores in autumn/winter 2019, coinciding with the launch of the show’s third series on CBeebies.

Go Jetters is a CBeebies and BBC Studios production in association with Blue Zoo Animation. The show follows four plucky international heroes, Xuli, Kyan, Lars and Foz, who travel the globe with their friend and mentor Ubercorn, a disco-dancing unicorn. Together they save the world’s most famous landmarks from the mischievous meddling of Grandmaster Glitch.

Louise Tyrer, sales and marketing director at 8th Wonder, commented: “We are thrilled to be launching our Go Jetters plush and wooden toy ranges. It’s true to say there is mounting demand for Go Jetters products from consumers.”

Julie Kekwick, senior licensing manager at BBC Studios, added: “Launching a plush and wooden toy range for Go Jetters is an exciting moment for us, and we’re looking forward to working with 8th Wonder in bringing the new ranges to retail later this year.”
