The new product will be launching at retail on Autumn/Winter 2015.
Jon Diver, Character Option’s Joint Managing Director says: “Clangers is an evergreen property that already has a strong following amongst parents of many of today’s pre-schoolers. With the upcoming CBeebies series, and timeless storylines and characters, the time is ripe to bring it back to market as a major toy line.”
Valerie Fry, Director of Sales at Coolabi adds: “Clangers is a much loved brand so it is vital that the new range of product is of the highest quality. Character Options is a globally renowned producer of high-calibre toys and is the ideal partner to be working with on our exciting new project.”
Coolabi, Smallfilms, CBeebies and US 24-hour pre-school network, Sprout, are co-producing the series, with BBC Worldwide for its international channels. BBC Worldwide is also confirmed as the international distributor for the show. The £5 million production is already underway and is set for a return to the small screen in 2015.
