One Animation has joined forces with RP2 to launch a range of toys based on recent childrens' animation, Oddbods.

The plush toys and figurines from master toy partner RP2 will directly mirror physical comedy storylines from the show, which airs on Disney XD in the US and Télétoon+ in France.

The Oddbods range will be launched in Europe in early 2016.

“This is an animation and licensing agreement like no other," said Simon Cox, managing director of RP2.

"With RP2’s unique collaborative relationship with One Animation, we have produced a range of toys so that kids can play out their favorite scenes from the series and of course create their own adventures.

“We were drawn to the high-production values, outstanding creativity and great storytelling in Oddbods showing these qualities are no longer the preserve of Hollywood. It’s something that everyone at RP2 is very excited about."

One Animation CEO, Sashim Parmanand, added: “Oddbod’s consistently growing fan base was a huge motivator for us to bring the show to life with a toy range focused on the European market.

"Our team strives to push the boundaries in delivering high quality animation with fun storytelling and lots of laughs. In RP2 we have a partner that matches our aspiration in creating and delivering high quality, and engaging products to our growing fan base.”
