MGA Entertainment has been named the worldwide licensing agent for the global pre-school sensation, Little Baby Bum. The move is an extension of the toymaker’s partnership with brand owner Moonbug, following the success of its Little Baby Bum toy line from Little Tikes.
Under the new partnership, MGAE will develop a consumer products programme for the brand to accelerate its availability and accessibility across the globe.
“Little Baby Bum’s engaging and playful nursery rhymes have resonated with millions of kids around the world, and we’re excited to bring fans new ways to deepen their connection both online and offline,” said Simon Philips, Moonbug.
“It is a favourite for parents, too. During these difficult times where educational content has been in high demand from parents, Little Baby Bum has seen a huge uptick in views as parents have chosen it to entertain their kids.”
“Little Baby Bum is a worldwide favorite among kids as we’ve seen with the initial launch of our Little Tikes Little Baby Bum toys that launched last fall,” said Isaac Larian, CEO and founder of MGAE. “Our worldwide licensing team has generated much success for the L.O.L Surprise! brand and this is an exciting time to bring the Little Baby Bum digital IP into the real world for its millions of fans.”
Little Baby Bum has captivated audiences with its playful nursery rhyme storylines that help kids learn and grow through song. It has expanded exponentially both offline and online in the last year and can be found on over 40 platforms globally including Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. On YouTube alone, it garners over 1.5 billion views per month and has surpassed 80 million subscribers.
