“We’re thrilled with the reception we have received to our product offerings for PJ Masks. And we know that our newest partners will provide fans throughout the US and Canada with even more opportunities to team up with their favourite characters from the series and embark on their own heroic adventures.”

Joining the PJ Masks roster of licensees in the US are the likes of Little Kids for bubble toys, Playhut for play tents, Swimways for water toys and What Kids Want for novelty seasonal toys.

Meanwhile, across both the US and Canada, Fisrt Act will launch a range of musical instruments, Jazwares with consumer electronics, LeapFrog with ELAs and Tech4Kids with novelty lighting products.
