The Shuffle line appears in new, premium packaging specially designed to be both durable and portable.
Trudi Bishop, head of marketing and licensing, Cartamundi Group, said: “We’re delighted at the enthusiasm with which some of France’s biggest names in toy retail have embraced Shuffle. We’re sure it will prove a big success in this pivotal market. After all card playing really is international — and, in today’s world, so are apps.”
