Amscan, Sakar, Winning Moves and DC Thomson among new UK partners across toys, party and publishing

MGA Entertainment’s sweet smelling collectable brand Num Noms has doubled its number of licensing partners around the world.

The mix, match and stack novelty line has attracted 40 new licensees, bringing the total number of cross-category partners to 80.

Among the latest to sign up to the programme are Sakar, for electronics in the US, UK and France; Amscan for partyware in select European territories, Australia and New Zealand, Winning Moves for toys and games in the UK and Italy; and DC Thomson and Kennedy Publishing, which are both on board for publishing in the UK.

“From the first Num Noms licensed products --apparel, sleepwear and select accessories -- to hit retail in the U. in fourth quarter 2016, through today, the brand continues to exceed our expectations, appealing to a wide consumer base of young girls, collectors and others with a keen appreciation of whimsy,” said Juli Boylan, Global Head of Licensing, MGAE, who announced the new partnerships.

“We are very excited to be launching key categories this spring, and the full program worldwide in the fall.  Num Noms also continues to grow in the UK and European markets and so our focus as we head into Licensing Expo is to meet with potential partners in the ancillary categories, and further expand the brand in key international territories throughout the Asia Pacific and Latin American markets.”
