The new collection will include foam balls, mini puppets, blow-up balls, stickers and temporary tattoos designed for a variety of vending machines.
Annoying Orange stickers and temporary tattoos will begin appearing in vending machines later this year, with the “craneable” items launching in 2013.
“We see Annoying Orange as an excellent partner since we serve the same family-friendly audience that also views the popular YouTube and television series,” says Philip Brilliant, vice president of licensing and marketing, A&A Global Industries. “We look forward to adding the Annoying Orange items to our line of popular characters featured in vending machines across the country.”
A&A Global Industries joins a burgeoning licensing program for the brand–which launched a television series on Cartoon Network earlier this year–including talking plush, clip-ons, and collectible figures from The Bridge Direct; apparel and accessories for young men, juniors and boys from Hybrid Apparel, LF USA and Accessory Innovations; costumes from Rubies Costume Company; amusement park toys from Nanco; gummies and fruit snacks from Sunrise Confections; electronic accessories from Sakar; graphic novels from Papercutz; calendars from Calendar Holdings; and posters from Scorpio Posters.
