Moshi Monsters creator Mind Candy, and Vivid Toy Group have signed a strategic agreement that will see Moshi Monsters and the next IP from Mind Candy (soon to be announced) developed across toys, games and puzzles for the global market.
In particular the agreement will see the roll-out of the Moshi Monsters toy, games and puzzle lines across new international territories including, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and Austria in the coming months as local language adaptations of the game are activated.
