Top Toy Jong Kong has agreed a deal with Creacon to create and distribute a range of City of Friends toys in the German and Nordic territories.

The first in the range will land Autumn 2013 at Top Toy owned and licensed Toys R Us stores as well as independent retailers and BR Store chains.

Creacon has also partnered with Lace Digital Media Sales on a DVD distribution deal for the series, with launches planned in time of Christmas 2013.

City of Friends DVDs will also land in Portugal and Portugese speaking Africa soon thanks to an agreement with Films 4 You.
