Art Nation Agency will develop licensing programs, oversee marketing, promotions and collaborations with MGAE brands in the local market.

Art Nation Agency plans to collaborate with manufacturers of kids’ products in the following licensing categories:
- Food products;
- Care and hygiene;
- Active leisure goods; and
- Clothes and shoes.
New opportunities are also being offered for the brand in = the fast-moving consumer goods market.
"It is highly important that MGA Entertainment defined Ukraine as a separate market and chose local representatives but not international agencies,” says Albert Sargsian, licensing head, Art Nation Agency. “I am grateful for trust and very pleased that it is Art Nation Agency which was chosen an official agent of international MGAE brands. New opportunities are being opened for us. At the same time, high responsibility for the brands at a local level appears. We will do our best to exceed MGAE's expectations. Currently we are choosing reliable and prospective partners in different categories. We are negotiating with FMCG-leaders. Despite the crisis, we see a significant demand for collaboration with L.O.L. Surprise!, as it enables companies [to] quickly reanimate sales."
