Planet Toys will now manufacture science kits and distribute the Anjar line of role play items and action figures based on the comedy series.

In addition, a further 12 episodes of Max & Ruby - the pre-school show about bunny siblings - have been given the go ahead.

Licensees onboard for the property include Jakks Pacific/Play Along (master toy); Ty (beanies); JV Apparel (apparel and sleepwear); SG Footwear (US footwear); The Canadian Group (games and puzzles); and Penguin Young Readers Group (books).

Max & Ruby will also be featured in a musical stage show tour in the US, which is produced by Theatreworks USA.
