Underground Toys to launch Yo Kai Watch lines to the UK

UK toy manufacturer and distributor, Underground Toys is bringing a new range of hit Japanese animé series Yo Kai Watch products to the UK.

“Underground Toys is really excited to see how the range is received after the much anticipated Cartoon Network premiere later this month,” said Robyn Cowling, licensing director at Underground Toys.

Helena Mansell-Stopher of Bulldog, added: “We are excited to be working with Robyn and the team at Underground Toys as they are true innovators and leaders within the category.”
