British broadcaster showcases product for 'Hey Duggee,' 'Doctor Who' and other top shows.
BBC Worldwide unveiled its Christmas product lineup at an event in London, Tuesday.
The preschool category will be led by "Hey Duggee!," which debuted earlier this year on CBeebies. Products for the new series include toys and books, including picture and activity books and first stories from Penguin. A range of plush from master toy licensee Golden Bear has been selling well in Argos since July, and Sainsbury’s, Toys 'R' Us and Tesco will launch the line in September.
Golden Bear is also behind a new range of plush featuring Mr. Tumble, lead of the long-running CBeebies series "Something Special," now in its 10th season.
Of course, Christmas from the BBC wouldn’t be Christmas without "Doctor Who." The brand will be featured in “LEGO Dimensions” Sept. 29, which will see the Doctor join characters from Hollywood blockbusters in the new toys-to-life video game.
The full holiday product range for “Doctor Who” includes Pop Vinyl collectible figurines, publishing, DVDs, a special edition range of Christmas cards marking the 10th anniversary of the Doctor’s return, as well as a Matt Buckley-sculpted Cyberman bust. LEGO will also be releasing a series of new play sets for "Doctor Who" that will be revealed at a later date.
