The deal will see Worlds Apart focus on my first play and furniture ranges for the property with products launching next year including pop-up tents, ball pits, interactive electronic mats, My First Ready Beds, inflatable chairs, flip out sofas, MDF toy boxes, soft storage, plus MDF desks and stools.

Worlds Apart will also be developing product based on Little Charley Bear for its TV advertised Go Glow range.

"It is also great to be able to refresh our relationship with Worlds Apart (our licensee on Fifi and Roary), and we look forward to building a successful partnership with both companies on Little Charley Bear.”
