Sutikki, the kids and family division of Bento Box Entertainment, has signed its first wave of UK licensing partners for Moon and Me. The new preschool IP, created by Andrew Davenport (pictured, Teletubbies, In the Night Garden), already secured partnerships with Hasbro and Scholastic earlier this year.
The products include a standalone Moon and Me magazine and branded features in Fun to Learn titles from Redan, plus a feature in Immediate Media’s CBeebies-branded magazine. There will also be calendars, diaries, greeting cards, gift wrap, gift bags and gift tags from Danilo, puzzles from Jumbo Games, party goods from Amscan, licensed stationery and arts & crafts products from Blueprint Collections, and stickers from Paper Projects.
Moon and Me was greenlit by CBeebies in February, and the 50 x 22-minute show is set to air on the UK pubcaster in early 2018. It marks the first IP for Sutikki, which will serve as its primary production, merchandising and non-UK distribution partner.
