It’s a great step forward for the company and a step in the right direction as the target audiences for these plush, from little children to kidults, are two of the biggest markets in toy and entertainment.”

“The excitement around the Kidrobot range has resulted in strong pre-orders and unprecedented demand, making this one of the most successful product launches we have ever had. The popularity will only grow as consumers and trade customers alike come to realise Rubies is not only the home of costumes but also the home of licensed merchandise.” he added.
