Crocodile Hunter Remembered via New Toy Line

Wild Republic will create a special line of toys and collector item series based on Steve Irwin, a.k.a. The Crocodile Hunter, via a deal with the Australia Zoo and the Irwin family. Debuting next month at Toy Fair, the line of nearly 39 products includes various sized plush, action figures, and playsets. Part of the Wild Republic product line will be centered on Bindi Irwin, the eldest daughter in the family, who completed a new children's exercise and fitness DVD and began filming a new series for Discovery Channel this summer before her father's accident. The series will air on Animal Planet in March.
