Coolabi has inked a deal with Ravensburger as it continues to grow the licensing programme ahead of the debut of the new series of The Clangers.
Ravensburger will now develop a range of pre-school puzzles and games. This will include board games, dominoes and card games. The deal will see products on shelf in time for Christmas 2015.
The new 52 x 11-minute stop motion animation is due to launch on the UK on Cbeebies in spring. It is a contemporary version of the iconic British TV show, which first aired on the BBC in 1969.
"There is so much momentum behind the Clangers brand," commented Valerie Fry, director of sales at Coolabi. "We are seeing huge excitement in the licensing community and this agreement with Ravensburger represents the latest in a series of deals for this pre-school property.
"The inventive nature of the series lends itself well to puzzles and games, and we are proud to be working with Ravensburger on Clangers."
Existing licensees for the brand include Character Options (master toy), Penguin (books), Immediate Media (magazines), C&M Licensing (apparel), MV Sports (wheeled toys), Gemma International (greeting cards and gifts), Trade Mark Collections (children’s bags) and Rainbow Productions (costume characters).
