Pip, star of pre-school TV series Pip Ahoy!, has enjoyed a successful recent half term break at Pontin’s with thousands of children taking part in character costume meet-&-greet sessions.
The appearances proved to be a ‘star attraction’ for parents and children, with the Stockport centre reporting 800 people alone coming to see Pip.
The nationwide Pip Ahoy! Character visits will continue throughout 2015.
“We are delighted with the progress for Pip Ahoy," said Gayle Tarrant, Lisle International, UK licensing agent for Pip Ahoy!.
"The steady development of ways for children to enjoy the characters and adventures from Salty Cove is all part of the strategy in building Pip Ahoy! into an evergreen brand that parents trust and children love for years to come. This year there are important milestones to celebrate such as the launch of the master toy range, whilst brand activities such as the costume visits and our successful educational programme will continue.”
