L.A.-based agency Lawless Entertainment has been named the exclusive North American licensing agent for Atlantyca Entertainment’s beloved children’s book series Geronimo Stilton.
Among an expected range of licensed consumer products Lawless will work to produce in partnership with Italy’s Atlantyca are toys, games, arts & crafts, apparel, costumes, homewares, stationery and novelty items.
Both companies will look for new opportunities around the property as they exhibit together at next month’s Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas.
