Strange Hill High combines everyday classroom antics with fantastical and mysterious goings on and depicts the adventures of Mitchell, Becky and Templeton as they investigate bizarre occurrences at their school. The top-rated show, produced using a new production technique combining puppets and digital effects, enjoyed a successful debut on CBBC last Spring with a further series due in 2014.

The new range from Jumbo Games will consist of a Rub & Reveal Puzzle, Gift Tin/Carry Case, Scratch & Sniff Puzzles and Glow in the Dark Puzzles. The releases will include a themed Lost & Found Card Game and Board Game. The Strange Hill High puzzles and games will be suitable for ages five years and above and are due for release across 2014 and 2015.

Katherine Pierce, marketing manager at Jumbo Games, commented: “We are thrilled to have Strange Hill High join our ever growing portfolio of licences as part of our commitment to offer our customers the latest children’s brands. We are sure this exciting range of puzzles and games will be a fun interpretation of the show and will be a huge hit with Strange Hill High fans.”
