Vanessa Fowler, Heroes for Kids, said: “We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with this great new brand and have been overwhelmed by the huge demand for products that we have seen so far. We are looking forward to developing our own range of ancillary products for the eshop throughout 2013 and have no doubt that this is a brand that will be around for a long time to come.”
Product is also available across retail from a wide range of licensees, including Mookie Toys for Master Toy, EMI Publishing, Blues Clothing, Jupiter Toys, Ravensburger, Kurio, LeapFrog and Aykroyds TDP. A full range of licensed products will also be released throughout the year in Australia, including playsets, plush and a Master Toy line that will be backed by full TV support.
