Emmy-nominated writer Mark Bailey and SPD Brands has launched a Tiny Headed Kingdom plush line in the US.

Available from Go! Retail Group in stores across the US, the line of plush animals with tiny heads and big hearts is just the start for what Bailey sees as a potential fully fledged brand across apparel, publishing and animation.

“Our lion, tiger and bear are only the beginning“, said Bailey.

“We will soon be adding more characters to the Tiny Headed Kingdom, and we envision expanding the licensing program to include many other categories including apparel, collectibles and publishing. We are also pursuing animation opportunities.”

Jennifer Schubert, vice president of merchandising for Go! Retail Group, added: "We are thrilled to partner with Mark Bailey and SPD Brands to bring this unique line of comfy and cuddly plush to retail just in time for the holidays."
