·      A “Ben and Holly’s

Little Kingdom” stage show will begin touring in March 2015. (eOne says that pre-order ticket sales have increased by 47 percent in comparison to the 2012 tour);

·      Additional book titles, magazine and DVD releases are planned for throughout the year; and

·      A new charity partnership with I Can will include a Ben and Holly-branded Chatterbox Challenge in March 2015.
