The brand's latest partners join a growing licensing programme that includes the likes of K'Nex, Character Options, Penguin, Titan, Magic Box and Character World.

"Plants vs Zombies is rapidly becoming an iconic brand," said Bulldog MD Rob Corney.

"The imagery is instantly recognisable and with strong characterisation, cross category scalability and a huge consumer reach, tho is an ideal brand for the licensing market.

"We are already seeing strong sell-through across a number of product lines, so we are expecting these new products to perform very well at retail."

Bulldog Licensing is now preparing itself to the launch of Plants vs Zombies' console debut with new title Garden Warfare arriving this spring.
