Hasbro has signed on as global master toy licensee for Moon and Me, Foundling Bird and Sutikki’s new preschool series that was greenlit by CBeebies earlier this week.
Created by Andrew Davenport (Teletubbies, In The Night Garden) and co-produced by his company and Bento Box Entertainment’s newly launched kids division, the 50 x 22-minute show is slated to air on the UK pubcaster in early 2018.
A new product line within Hasbro’s Playskool portfolio will accompany the series’ launch in the UK. Additional markets are expected to follow as Moon and Me rolls out worldwide.
Davenport is no stranger to Playskool—the division has a long history of products based on both the Teletubbies and In The Night Garden brands.
