“Mexico is the largest and most mature market in Latin America and aspirational to Latino countries,” says Zag. “‘Miraculous’ Ladybug has 91.67% awareness in Mexico for girls ages 7 to 9 due to the robust content available on key platforms and everyone is excited for the upcoming animated feature that will debut later in the year. We are focusing on generating the best brand experiences and products for our ‘Miraculous’ Ladybug fans and are delighted to have signed with such a distinguished group of licensees. We are also in discussion with partners for collaborations that will bring location-based experiences and activities to families, retail pop-ups, and a new line of products for young adults. We can’t wait to get these new products on shelves alongside our hugely successful toy line from ZAG Lab and Playmates, distributed by Bandai.”
