1461 Productions has confirmed the return of its heritage property Little Monsters. Lisle International has been appinted as master licensing agent for the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
TV animated property featuring a series of characters that play out the different characteristics of children aged four to eight.
In the ‘90s the Little Monsters publishing programme produced 38 titles in 30 countries. Complying with literacy requirements, each one featured a different Little Monster. Off the back of the popularity of the books a successful animated show was created.
This year the number of Little Monsters books is set to 60 and the TV show will return in 2013.
Russell Dever from 1461 Productions said: “2012 is a landmark year for Little Monsters and is the perfect time for us to fully launch the brand. We believe that Lisle International is the team to drive this forward whilst keeping the very essence of the little Monsters spirit. Their unique approach is also the perfect combination of dedication and support for our new licence partners.”
Gayle Tarrant, business partner Lisle International, said: “Little Monsters perfectly complements our existing portfolio and we are delighted to be working with the team at 1461 Productions at a key time for the property’s development. We have many ideas for new license opportunities and we look forward to discussing this with prospective partners at BLE.”
