With an already extensive licensing line of games and puzzles, Jumbo Games is once again increasing its offering with a new line of Finding Dory and Peppa Pig items. 

“We’re very excited that our Finding Dory range is out now and we have put a lot of investment into making sure we’ve got the range just right.” Steven Russell, marketing executive at Jumbo Games, told Licensing.biz.

“It certainly is one of our biggest launches this year in our children’s portfolio, as well as Peppa Pig, Ben & Holly and some fantastic new pre-school licences, which are to be announced imminently.” 

The range of Finding Dory games and puzzles includes a four-in-one shaped set of Bath Puzzles, a Bath Memo Game and five traditional jigsaws.

The jigsaw line spans a four-in-one Bumper Pack, four-in-one Shaped Puzzle Set, four-in-one Puzzle Box, a Giant Floor Puzzle, an assortment of three puzzles and a 100XL puzzle.

Elsewhere, the firm has debuted its Peppa Pig Party Time Race Game, revealing it is ‘delighted’ by its release having received a ‘fantastic response from retail already, with great listings’. 

Russell added: “We worked very hard to make sure we developed the right game for the consumer and we’ve got just that.

“The board game allows children to race against each other in a bid to be the first to arrive at Suzy Sheep’s party, while avoiding several distraction spaces along the way. 

“It’s great for children and also helps to develop children’s numeracy and social-play skills, whilst being fun and entertaining.“

Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory , a sequel to Finding Nemo, opens in UK cinemas on July 29th.
