Zodiak Kids has secured a deal with TCG that will see the Toronto-based toyco produce, distribute and market a new line of wooden toys in North America based on Zodiak’s hit preschool IP Tickety Toc.
The line for preschoolers will include a Pufferty puppy train, the Tickety Toc clock, and main characters Tommy, Tallulah, McCoggins and Hopparoo.
Toys are set to hit mass-market retail shelves across North America for fall 2014.
US licensing agent Established Brands and Canada’s Studio Licensing, on behalf of Zodiak Kids, brokered the deal.
The latest deal follows recent North American licensing deals in categories such as apparel, décor and games, and also comes on the heels of Scholastic being named as North American master publishing partner for the property.
A first round of consumer products from master toy partner Just Play and home entertainment licensee Anchor Bay Entertainment will reach North America this fall.
