FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment has appointed U.S. toy company Jazwares as the master toy licensee for its preschool series "Tree Fu Tom."
Jazwares will serve as global manufacturer for the brand, distributing a new range of Tree Fu Tom toys in the U.K., Asia, North America, Canada and Latin America. A variety of distributors will manage the range in other key territories.
The first products, distributed by Funtastic, will launch at retail in Australia this summer with a wider product rollout continuing in the U.K. and other key territories. The initial toy range will includes vehicles, figures and an interactive carry case play set.
“As we seek to expand our international rollout in the U.S. and Asia, we are delighted to have signed a new master toy licensee with a strong presence in these territories," says Rick Glankler, executive vice president and general manager FMKFE. "With their focus on function, play value and innovation, Jazwares is renowned for pushing the boundaries of product design.”
A co-production between CBeebies and FMKFE, a third season of "Tree Fu Tom" was commissioned by CBeebies for transmission in 2016.
