The deal marks Carte Blanche's move into the toy industry with the evergreen Tatty Teddy property and its spin off brand - My Blue Nose Friends, which was launched in 2008. The two brands have joined together as a linked concept for the toy industry, with a new logo.

Flair is set to offer a creative play range which will include message makers, bead sets, re-usable gel stickers and headband decorating kits.

The products are set to hit retail in Autumn 2012, coinciding with a collectable Tatty Teddy and My Blue Nose Friends range from Worlds Apart, announced earlier this year.

Sarah Quigley, CBG licensing manager, commented: "It’s great to be working with Flair at this exciting time in our brands’ development. The company is hugely respected with a fabulous reputation for producing top quality, innovative toys.

"Tatty Teddy and My Blue Nose Friends have seen phenomenal growth over recent years, and the timing is perfect for a launch into the toy category. We are one hundred per cent confident that our many fans will be delighted with the toys produced by our new partners."

Lindsay Hardy from Flair added: "Flair is delighted to be working with Carte Blanche on these two properties. The core messages of friendship will translate beautifully into creative play products which girls will love."

Tatty Teddy, the grey bear with a blue nose, was created by Carte Blanche Greetings under the Me to You brand. Originally launched as a greeting card character, the brand now sits across many categories including plush, gifting, apparel, confectionery and stationery.

My Blue Nose Friends was launched 2008 and to date, has sold over 5.6 million pieces of plush in UK and international markets. The brand has expanded into children’s partyware, figurines, confectionery and gifting and plans for publishing and an animated TV series are in development.
