Whether dressing up to play with friends, for a fun occasion or simply to watch their favourite episodes at home, we look forward to giving fans a chance to become one of the Oddbods gang.”

Tracey Devine-Tyley, head of Licensing & Portfolio at Rubies, added: “We are excited to be bringing these fun and quirky characters to life.”
