Cartoon Saloon Brand Development has announced a slate of new licensing partners for its leading brands, “Puffin Rock,” “The Irish Folklore Trilogy” and “My Father’s Dragon.” 

“Puffin Rock and The New Friends” will premiere in Ireland this summer and roll out in select territories around the world later this year. With the movie’s focus on the natural world, Cartoon Saloon has signed multiple new licensing partners, including eco-design manufacturer, GreenRe, for a line of sustainable stationery products with distribution across North America, the U.K. and Ireland, Australia and New Zealand; Snuggly Figs for an eco-friendly and socially responsible children’s clothing line made of bamboo for North America and Value Add Games for an educational board game for the European Union. A newly expanded range of sustainable plush will also be available for the release featuring the new characters. 

“With ‘Puffin Rock and The New Friends,’ which just debuted at the Cannes Film Festival Market with WestEnd Film, we are delighted to have signed our first licensing partners for apparel and products that will allow new and old fans alike to extend their engagement with the movie,” says Brian Tyrrell, general manager, Cartoon Saloon Brand Development. “As we head into Licensing Expo, we’re excited to have such high-quality partners on board across our brands, and we look forward to sharing further information there on our evergreen properties with our current and potential partners.”
