The brand is already popular in Australia, the U.S. and the U.K, and has a strong social media presence. Bulldog plans to tap into this popularity for the brand's licensing program by targeting sectors including back-to-school, publishing, apparel and plush.
“Shopkins is a massive opportunity for the U.K. licensing market,” says Rob Corney, managing director, Bulldog. “It has massive support from toy partner Flair, extremely strong characterization from Moose and a licensing program that will be growing very quickly based on the reaction we had at Brand Licensing Europe. All of the partners involved have a pedigree in delivering brands from the collectible world that offer huge commercial opportunities and longevity.”
