The brands join Sagoo’s portfolio, which includes “Rilakkuma,” Care Bears, Miffy, “Emily the Strange” and a myriad of music brands such as The Beatles, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, The Police, Led Zeppelin and many more.

“We are thrilled to be working with Endemol Shine Group on such prestigious brands across a wide audience, and we’re looking forward to presenting them to potential licensees to get the consumer products program up and running in France,” says Veronique Pichon, president, Sagoo.
