DHX Media has appointed Spin Master as the global distributor for the upcoming range of Teletubbies toys.

The deal will see the toy firm deliver the collection of plush, plastics and bath toys from Character Options across the US, Canada, France, Germany and Benelux.

The Teletubbies toy range is set to debut in 2016, and will follow the launch of the show on UK commissioning channel CBeebies.

“Significant momentum is building for the global launch of Teletubbies and the addition of Spin Master adds a real catalyst to our partnerships on the brand,” said Peter Byrne, DHX Brands EVP.

“With their excellent retail relationships and expertise in understanding the marketing needs of high-profile toy brands, they are the ideal distributor in these core markets.”

Adam Beder, Spin Master executive vice president of global licensing, added: “Teletubbies has long been one of the most iconic brands in the pre-school space and Spin Master is beyond thrilled to be playing a key role in the introduction of the brand to a new generation of children.

“We look forward to unveiling our new line of plush, bath and plastic toys which are sure to excite all of the young Teletubbies fans in the US, Canada, France, Germany and Benelux.”
