New partners include Dreamwave for swimwear; Cardinal Games for a Peppa Pig Playing Cards Super Set; H2W/Sunstaches for sunglasses; Jakks Pacific for toys and a selection of novelties; The Northwest Company for tapestry throws; Playhut for play tents; and Playtex for sippy cups.
The new “Peppa Pig” products will all be available at retailers this year.
“'Peppa’ is now one of the top preschool properties in North America,” says Joan Grasso, vice president, licensing, North America, eOne. “We’re thrilled with the opportunity to continue our strong partnerships with Jazwares and other key best-in-class licensees, who have all helped to create this successful preschool program. We’re also very excited to provide fans with even more meaningful and fun-filled ways to engage with ‘Peppa.’”
In addition to the merchandise from current licensees, the brand’s new partners will introduce a range of products ranging from apparel to games and more.
