RP2 brings Oddbods to life

Published on: 9th June 2015

A partnership between RP2 and One Animation will deliver a range of Oddbods toys.

ODDBODS IMAGE 2RP2 has been appointed as the Oddbods master toy partner for Europe and will launch a range of products in early 2016.

The plush toys and figurines will directly mirror physical comedy storylines from the show with a firm focus on fun and making children laugh.

Simon Cox, managing director of RP2, commented: “This is an animation and licensing agreement like no other. With RP2’s unique collaborative relationship with One Animation, we have produced a range of toys so that kids can play out their favourite scenes from the series and create their own adventures.

“We were drawn to the high-production values, outstanding creativity and great storytelling in Oddbods, showing these qualities are no longer the preserve of Hollywood. It’s something that everyone at RP2 is very excited about.”
