Licensing reps Ink Global and Biplano line up roster of product partners for the brand.
The brand is represented for distribution and licensing worldwide by Ink Global, with Biplano appointed as a sub-agent for the brand in Iberia.
"Masha and the Bear" currently airs in Spain on Boing and Canal Panda and on SIC in Portugal.
The latest licensee to join the brand's CP program is Penguin Random House, which will develop a range of publishing formats for the Spanish and Portuguese markets for launch from Q1 2016.
Existing deals are already in place across toys (Simba Dickie, Saica, Clementoni), personal care (Air-Val), arts and crafts (Stor, Cife, Canal Toys), back-to-school (Montichelvo, K-Stationery), stickers and albums (Panini), apparel (TV Mania) accessories (Lugar Difusion) and more. Merchandise will be launching throughout 2016.
“Success across Iberia follows on from a strong performance in other countries, such as Italy, and underlines the huge licensingpotential of 'Masha and the Bear,'" says Claus Tømming, director, Ink Global. "It’s innovative, fresh and funny and really stands out from other kids' brands, which puts it in a very strong position at retail.”
