Cartoon Network has signed Spin Master as the global master toy partner for next year’s reboot of The Powerpuff Girls.
The global franchise is set to launch in 2016 and the deal will see Spin Master create a full line of products including plush, figures and playsets, dolls, and role play, select electronic, activity and remote control toys, and novelty and impulse items.
The product will begin its global retail rollout in Q3 2016.
“As we build our roster of partners to launch The Powerpuff Girls licensing programme and introduce a new generation of fans to this cherished franchise, Spin Master embodies the qualities we’re looking to infuse into our products,” said Pete Yoder, vice president, Cartoon Network Enterprises, North America.
“Working together, we’ve seen firsthand the level of innovation and excitement they bring to their products, and we’re confident that through play, The Powerpuff Girls toy line will empower fans of all ages to believe that like Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup, they, too, can save the world before bedtime.”
Craig Sims, Spin Master’s vice president global licensing, added: "The partnership between The Powerpuff Girls and Spin Master strengthens our strategic relationship with Cartoon Network that began with the launch of the award-winning Bakugan brand in 2008 and is the perfect brand to continue pushing the boundaries of fun for our consumers,"
"Together, we’re creating unexpected and highly interactive play experiences you won’t find anywhere else.”
