Copyrights Group has extended its portfolio by launching a new girls' line to be based on the successful Princess Poppy books.

Written by Janey Louise Jones, the books were first published in March 2006 and tell the adventures of Poppy, an ordinary little girl who, as long as she's good, is also a special princess along with her friends and family in the village of Honeypot Hill.

Over 375,000 books have already been sold, with a total of 20 titles being published during 2007, plus a further 12 titles - both picture and story books - due in 2008.

The first phase of the licensing programme - which was officially launched at Brand Licensing Europe earlier this month - will include greetings, stationery, gifts, toy and games, apparel and confectionery.


The Royal Navy

The Royal Navy may not immediately spring to mind as a typical licensed property. For a start, it?s owned by the Ministry of Defence and it has a serious function, unlike the many children?s/adult entertainment brands which exist solely, well, to entertain.
