We will be working with licensees of the highest calibre to create quality products for the long term that resonate with the high level production values of the TV series.

"We are delighted to have signed Vivid as master toy and know their commitment to launching our first Rosie toy range in 2011 will satisfy the enormous consumer demand for this unique preschool property."
