Uncle Milton Industries has been appointed to produce science-themed toys based on The Jim Henson Company's animated series "Dinosaur Train."
In the multi-year deal, Uncle Milton has been granted the rights to develop educational toys inspired by the children's series and its prehistoric cast. The line will be available in spring 2011 in North America and in fall 2011 in the U.K., Spain, France and Australia.
"We know Uncle Milton will introduce a compelling new educational line that allows kids the opportunity to explore real science within the familiar and popular Dinosaur Train world," says Melissa Segal, senior vice president of global consumer products for The Jim Henson Company. "Uncle Milton has been an industry leader in science and nature exploration toys for more than half a century and having them on board in the science and educational toy sector will complement the rest of our Dinosaur Train consumer products offering."
"Dinosaur Train" is broadcast on PBS Kids.
