Licensed by Coolabi, the British animated children’s television series, “Bagpuss,” first premiered on U.K. television in 1974.
Rainbow Designs will launch a new, exclusive range of Bagpuss plush toys later this year available to consumers across the U.K. in the fall and winter.
“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Bagpuss to Rainbow’s family of classic characters ahead of his 50th-anniversary celebration next year,” says Anthony Temple, managing director, Rainbow Designs. “This much-loved saggy cloth cat has created so many superb childhood memories for both parents and grandparents; families now have the opportunity to enjoy this delightful character with their children, creating new, lasting memories – which is such a wonderful gift! Bagpuss is a hugely iconic and instantly recognizable character. We received a fantastic response to our new super-cuddly, yawning soft toy at all the trade shows this season, and we absolutely cannot wait to have him on the shelves and available to consumers later this year.”
Coolabi Group will make further announcements later this year as Bagpuss celebrates his 50th anniversary in 2024.
