Sydney-based Cheeky Little Media and Fusion Agency have named TOMY as the master toy partner for their animated preschool series Kazoops, which airs on CBeebies, ABC Kids and Netflix.
Slated for a July release, the toy line will include plush, figurines, play sets and games.
The 78 x seven-minute series for three- to five-year-olds is about a six-year-old boy named Monty who spends all his time with his best friend and the family pet pig, Jimmy Jones. It initially premiered in the UK on CBeebies last June before launching in August on ABC Kids in Australia. The series debuted on Netflix in the US and Canada near the end of last year.
First up for toys is a plush line featuring Monty and Jimmy Jones, as well as three other characters from the show. The line will initially launch in the UK and Australia before heading to other territories.
