PENGUIN VENTURES AND ORCHARD TOYS EXTEND LICENSING PARTNERSHIP FOR THE WORLD OF PETER RABBIT

13 May - 2024

Following the incredibly successful UK launch of Orchard Toys’ new THE WORLD OF PETER RABBIT collection, Penguin Ventures is extending the licence to cover 20 additional global markets.

There has been phenomenal interest in THE WORLD OF PETER RABBIT collection of games and jigsaws since its launch at Toy Fair, and Nuremberg has created amazing interest and demand from the overseas market.
The licence extension granted by Penguin Ventures on behalf of Frederick Warne & Co. Ltd (Beatrix Potter’s original publisher and owner of THE WORLD OF PETER RABBIT), means that the range will now be available in 20 markets across Europe, the Mediterranean, SE Asia, South Africa and Australia.

Josh Beevor, Director at Orchard Toys, says:“The launch response from the UK trade and consumers to our first licensed collaboration has been brilliant.  To have such an appetite and enthusiasm for the Peter Rabbit range from our international customers too is fantastic, and an enormous sales opportunity.   It really is a great way to consolidate our partnership with Penguin Ventures”. 

David Sprei, Commercial Director Penguin Ventures says:“The global demand for The World of Peter Rabbit™ Collection is testament to the wonderful job Orchard Toys and Penguin Ventures have done in evolving the narrative of Beatrix Potter’s original Tale of Peter Rabbit, and blending these two iconic brands. The Tale of Peter Rabbit has been translated into 50 languages, since it was first published in 1902, so it’s fitting to see the new games taking to the global stage too”.
