CHF Media Group has inked a partnership with London-based custom merchandise printer KITE to launch online shops for its Pip Ahoy! and Daisy & Ollie animated series in the UK.
The print-on-demand company has already opened an e-commerce platform for each brand, selling t-shirts, cushions, hoodies and posters with graphic designs. And these shops are poised to expand with additional products moving forward.
The deal with KITE comes on the heels of London’s Jetpack Distribution purchasing the international rights to Pip Ahoy! and Daisy & Ollie. This agreement covers the first three seasons of Pip and a 22-minute special, as well as Daisy & Ollie‘s first two seasons, plus a 22-minute special and 22 x 1.5-minute nursery rhyme shorts. ITVBe also recently picked up three seasons of Pip Ahoy! for its new littleBe preschool block.
The UK’s Coolabi Group similarly hopped on the e-store trend last month, opening an online shop with Star Editions that features products based on its Clangers property. The shop is selling customizable t-shirts, cushions, mugs, magnets, coasters, tote bags and stationery to celebrate the brand’s upcoming 50th anniversary in 2019.
