New York-based prodco Space Race has named California-headquartered Funrise Toy Corporation as global master toy partner for its animated preschool series Space Racers. The toy line will hit global retailers in fall 2018.
Space Racers debuted on Netflix in 2015, and on a number of global broadcasters including France Televisions and SVT, while the second season launched in November 2016 on NBC Universal’s Sprout network. The series, which focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), airs in more than 130 countries and in 25 different languages.
The NASA-endorsed show follows Eagle, Robyn, Hawk, Starling and Raven as they explore the solar system with their fellow cadets at the Stardust Bay Space Academy.
