Toronto’s Guru Studio is extending the global licensing presence of its hit preschool show Justin Time thanks to new deals with e-commerce engine Cafe Press and Turkey agent Kaynak Licensing.
Cafe Press is set to launch a dedicated online apparel and gear store for Justin Time this month that will feature apparel, home decor, wall art, and accessories for toddlers and kids.
The store will also be available at Shop Sprout online, as Justin Time has been a consistent top-performing preschool series for the US kidnet.
As the IP’s new licensing agent in Turkey, Kaynak Licensing (The Hive, Everything’s Rosie, Sid the Science Kid) will look for new consumer products opportunities in the region.
Looking at the property’s international licensing growth, US and Canada rep Knockout Licensing’s program includes toys, apparel, dress-up and adventure playsets, while Super RTL Merchandising is handling L&M activity in Germany.
Recent 2014 product launches from additional licensees include DVDs from Cinedigm and LeapFrog for apps.
The new appointments also come on the heels of Guru securing new broadcasting deals for the series with Italy’s Cartoonito and Netflix in Latin America.
