Brandgenuity Adds Licensees for 'Carmen Sandiego'

HMH plans to bring the brand into publishing with the debut title,

Who in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

as well as its Spanish-language edition, an audible audiobook and a “Carmen” classroom educational program.

Goliath Games will develop a board game for the brand, and Basic Fun will launch a handheld “Carmen Sandiego” game that is based on the gadget seen in the series. Both games will launch in fall 2019, as well as “Carmen Sandiego”-branded Halloween costumes and accessories by Spirit Halloween.

“We are thrilled that ‘Carmen Sandiego’, a beloved cultural touchstone, is here for a new generation of fans and that her expanded story will be enjoyed by both kids and parents,” says Caroline Fraser, head, HMH Productions, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. “We cannot wait to offer engaging products to those who just can’t get enough of Carmen Sandiego.”

“We are excited to help develop ‘Carmen Sandiego’ into a broad licensing program, with fun, action-packed, educational products that will delight children

and parents alike,” says Allison Lort, vice president, business development, Brandgenuity. “‘Carmen Sandiego’ is a positive role model for young girls everywhere: she’s smart, cool and a global citizen... but most of all, she is the ultimate SHE-ro just by being herself!”

The Netflix series stars Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”) as the voice of Carmen Sandiego and Finn Wolfhard (“Stranger Things”) as her sidekick Player.

Brandgenuity plans to expand the “Carmen” licensing program with toys, games, apparel, accessories, back-to-school, social expression and more.
