The toy line is scheduled to roll out at major retailers during the first quarter of 2009. Galleon is set to support the launch with major marketing initiatives including a national TV campaign through February and half term.

The UK distribution deal with Trends follows the exclusive distribution deal in the US with major toy manufacturer and marketer Zizzle Toys, worldwide master toy licensee for Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise among others.

“Skunk Fu has been a hit performing show in the UK and we are delighted to be working with such a talented company as Trends UK who offer the best opportunity to ensure the success of the Skunk Fu toy line. We look forward to this being the start of a successful partnership,” said Adrian Whyles, Business Development Director of Galleon.

“Skunk Fu! is capturing a whole generation of young fans and we’re thrilled to have been chosen to distribute the Skunk fu toyline in the UK. The success the television show has had on the BBC is unprecedented and we look forward to making the range available to the UK fans,” said Lee Clowes Trends UK Managing Director.
