Rob Kay, managing director of Carterbench, said: “We look forward to joining the team at CHF Entertainment who has such a rich and well respected heritage. Pip! has great appeal and I am happy to say that we have already had some initial discussions with a number of toy licensing companies and the series has been very well received, in particular the seaside location.”

CHF Entertainment also recently appointed Lisle International as the master agent worldwide for Pip!. Gayle Tarrant of Lisle International said: “The team at Lisle is both delighted and proud to be working on such a promising new property and with such a great team. It is our intention to build a prestigious long-term licensing programme with partners who can best understand, create and deliver pre-school product.”
