The Fashion Dolls will be distributed by Simba in Germany.

Super RTL will feature 400 TVRs over a period of five weeks, between October 12th and November 22nd, and a minimum of 170 TVRs are destined for NICK throughout the autumn.

The launch of the new TV series will begin in November 2009 on Nick, cross-supporting the launch of the Dolls inspired by this series.

The broadcast of the previous Winx Club seasons reached market shares of up to 26 per cent of kids three to 13 years old and is one of Nick Germany’s top shows.

The Fashion Dolls from the first three Winx Club seasons have consistently maintained their second position after Barbie in Germany and in a number of European countries.
