Rainbow Rangers, the new animated preschool adventure launched on Nick Jr. on November 5, continues to attract licensing partners of many hues as Genius Brands International ramps up to the brand’s U.S. retail launch in 2019.
Genius Brands’ SVP of Global Licensing Lloyd Mintz announced that the Company has signed four new licensing partners, including Cra-Z-Art for crafts and activities; Esquire Footwear for shoes and footwear; Integrity Vitamins, for developing a line of chewable, all natural, vegan, gummy vitamins for kids based on the colorful Rainbow Rangers characters; and Townley Girl, for a line of age-appropriate cosmetics and a variety of health and beauty products.
“We are thrilled with the response from licensees who are clamoring to be associated with this fresh, colorful and exciting new preschool brand,” said Mintz. “There is already an amazing consumer awareness for the brand, heightened by the premiere on Nick Jr., of course. And once the licensing program launches at retail outlets throughout the country — starting in back-to-school 2019 with over 300 product SKUs coming to the marketplace — we fully anticipate Rainbow Rangers will be among the top ‘must have’ consumer products for children of all ages throughout next year.”
