Simba reports sell-out success for Masha and the Bear

Published on: 23rd December 2015

The collection of toys launched exclusively with The Entertainer in October, and has seen exceptional sales.


In the last few years Masha and the Bear has gained a huge following in Russia, South East Asia and Eastern and Southern Europe.

In the UK Masha airs everyday on Cartoonito and is a YouTube phenomenon with over 70,000 views a day, taking one of the top spots on the newly launched YouTube Kids app. Next year will also see Masha expand onto Boomerang to complete a TV and digital broadcast platform.

The Simba range includes plush, dolls, playsets and construction, with more new products set to be released market-wide in 2016. Sales will continue to be supported by extensive YouTube advertising and a PR and social media campaign.
