Num NomsThe company has secured another 40 new licensees for a total of 80 worldwide licensing partners for its property Num Noms, the scented novelty and collectible “novibles” that kids can mix, match and stack in more than 5,000 variations.

Juli Boylan, global head of licensing, MGAE, commented: “From the first Num Noms licensed products – apparel, sleepwear and select accessories – to hit retail in the US in fourth quarter 2016, through today, the brand continues to exceed our expectations, appealing to a wide consumer base of young girls, collectors and others with a keen appreciation of whimsy.
