The range will be backed by TV advertising, PR and viral marketing and will vary in price from £4.99 up to £29.99.

"The M&L programme of fast gathering pace and the responses from licensees has been incredible, with deals closing now across numerous categories.

"We are delighted to have signed Vivid as master toy and know their commitment to launching out first Rosie toy range in 2011 will satisfy the enormous consumer demand for this unique pre-school property."

Emma Sherski, marketing and licensing director at Vivid, added: "By the time we launch the toy line next summer, there will be a sizeable ready-made market for products and we anticipate Everything's Rosie establishing itself as a top three girls pre-school line within the first year, as some of the competitor licences continue to decline."

Everything's Rosie launched on Cbeebies in May and consists of 52 11-minute episodes.
