FUN Union to develop BabyRiki licensing with a program that will cover a wide range of consumer products, publishing, games and apps, education centres and other merchandise categories.

BabyRiki is pre-school IP produced by Riki Group, a major animation holding based in Russia, which has entered the Chinese market in 2017 with the help of FUN Union and has been building up the presence and brand awareness with Chinese audience for two years achieving significant results on Chinese VOD platforms with total number of views going over 1,7 bln.

We believe now is exactly the right moment to give BabyRiki brand a spin in L&M segment in China as the levels of awareness and loyalty with the target audience have reached certain benchmarks.  With such a strong partner as LICENT we are sure our brand is bound for success and we are hoping for a long-term and strategic cooperation” – comments Diana Yurinova, CEO of FUN Union.

It is our honor to work with Fun Union and help to bring BabyRiki 4 Qs immersive experience to China consumers. We would enroll more licensees to this league and provide a wide range of product solution to parents for kids’ early development.” – comments Toni Qiu, partner of LICENT.
