The Copyrights Group has announced new partners for the brand ahead of the film, Paddington 2.

Rainbow Designs, Ravensburger, PMS International and University Games will all be launching new products for spring 2017, with ranges including plush, puzzles, colour and activity lines and games.

Rainbow Designs will launch two new and exciting feature plush toys Dancing Paddington and Cycling Paddington to add to the ever popular Talk to Me Paddington and My Name is Paddington feature plush range, which launched in 2016.

Ravensburger will launch a 60 piece giant floor puzzle, 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle and a four in a box puzzle while PMS launch a number of colouring and activity lines under their retail arm Gosh! Designs.

University Games will add Paddington Spot The Difference and Paddington Colour On to their games line-up, while a Paddington Board Game is also in development for an autumn/winter launch. 

For summer 2017 Trunki will introduce Paddington to their iconic ride on suitcase range, while Redan will launch a standalone Paddington magazine for November just before Paddington 2 hits cinemas. 

“We are delighted to be working with these fantastic new toy partners," commented Rachel Clarke, licensing director at The Copyrights Group. 

"Their products are a fabulous addition to the already extensive on-going Paddington merchandising programme and will be launching ahead of the hugely anticipated Paddington 2 movie in November 2017.”
