“I’m thrilled to be working with the Alpha team,” commented Vickie O’Malley, MD at Rockpool Licensing.

“As my Godson, Rufus can attest, Super Wings is a fabulous show, filled with great characters and exciting worldwide adventures, not to mention a rockin’ theme tune! The potential for consumer products is clear and Rockpool is proud to begin a partnership for the future with the powerhouse that is Alpha Group.”

“Anticipation and inquiries for the UK launch of cross category Super Wings products is already exceptionally high," added Mark Hyndman, country general manager, UK & Ireland at Alpha Animation & Toys.

We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Vickie and confident that Rockpool’s unique experience in developing brands and products, combined with their excellent licensee network and retail connections will enable us to deliver a program of high-quality products to Super Wings fans and their parents across the UK."

Super Wings has proved a hit with young viewers since its debut on Cartoonito in February 2017, with its accessible themes of friendship and adventure.
