The company celebrated by presenting Lindesay with a card, specially commissioned by the Gemma studio. The card featured all the brands that the company has signed since Lindesay and his late wife Margaret started the company back in 1985. From My Little Pony (its first licence signing) and Pokemon, to new signings including Jurassic World, Teletubbies and World of Warriors.
David Wesson, CEO, Gemma, said: “Lindesay is a real pioneer in the licensing and toy industry. He is not only our founding partner but also a real gentleman and everyone at Gemma wishes him a very happy 80th birthday.”
