The two month-old cub was rescued by Nuremberg zookeepers in January from its mother and has since attracted an array of fans.

Noris plans to bring out a Flocke-based board game by the end of this month with four jigsaw puzzles with motifs of the cub to follow in March.

Creativ plans to launch its own line of Flocke games while Steiff will begin selling a variety of plush items in May.

All items will be manufactured in the southern Germany and feature the official Flocke logo. A percentage of proceeds from the products will be donated to the Nuremberg Zoo.
