The licensed merchandise line for animated kids show Skunk Fu has been bolstered - with IP owner Galleon planning to debut the toy range at Toy Fair.
The collection has been developed and made in-house by Croco Sourcing Worldwide, a wholly owned subsidiary of Galleon Holdings. Croco is Galleon's long-established manufacturer, having worked with brands such as Pepsico and Kraft Foods amongst others.
The range will consist of collectable action figures, fighting plush, deluxe action figures with added extras, bop bags with sounds and electronic feature plush. It will be supported by extensive marketign across the UK.
"Galleon is a distinctive vertically integrated company that gives us the unique ability to develop a toy line in-house," said Stephen Green, CEO. "Skunk Fu, already a hit TV series in the UK and US, is poised to become the next phenomenon among children.
"We're excited to bring the brand to licensees and retailers and look forward to forging more partnerships at this year's Toy Fair."
The Skunk Fu licensing drive kicked off last year with a UK DVD deal with Warner Music Group. More licensing deals are to follow with publishing, video games, clothing and apparel partners.
The show airs on BBC1 in the UK and has been sold by TV distribution partner Cake Entertainment to over 100 territories.
