The new pre-school children’s series, The Furchester Hotel, first aired in September 2014 and is a Sesame Street co-production with CBeebies. The series features a new Muppet family, the Furchesters, along with Sesame Street characters Elmo and Cookie Monster.
Continuing the growth of its children’s games and puzzles portfolio, Jumbo Games will produce a series of licenced products including a 35 piece puzzle assortment, a 4in1 shaped puzzle, giant playing cards and a dominoes game. The range is set to launch in A/W 2015.
Gray Richmond, managing director of Jumbo Games, said: “We’re pleased to be working with Sesame Workshop and CPLG on this new and very exciting licence. Sesame Street has been popular amongst generations so we’re thrilled to be involved with this co-production.”
Gemma Witts, retail and category director of CPLG, said: “Jumbo Games is a great partner to have on board and complement a strong line-up of The Furchester Hotel licensees. We look forward to working with them, and all of our partners, as products begin to roll-out next year.”
