Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends bedding, pillows, slumber bags, bath accessories and beach towels will start hitting retail this fall thanks to a new deal between
Cartoon Network Enterprises and Franco Manufacturing. The products will target the tween market and trade on the goofy humor inherent in the CN series.
A sampling of goods from the Franco line, primarily Foster’s throw blankets and micro-bead pillows, will launch at Hot Topic’s 700 US stores. The manufacturer then intends to widen distribution channels and product assortment in spring ’08.
