Sunnyray, Breezy and others from the eco-character brand Planetpals have launched a new green gang of designs called PeacePal at this year's Licensing International Expo. The PeacePal range, says creator Judith Gorgone, complements the characters of Planetpals with messages for a better world, such as "world peace and love or bust!"
Gorgone's Planetspals debuted its first children's room décor range from Woods International in May. The line from the High Point, N.C., manufacturer featured a new product rollout, as well as existing products, such as room signs, door banners and rugs. Planetpals contributed design themes to the line, including "At home or at school, being green is cool," "It's green to be a Planetpal" and "Be a friend to earth," and featured the characters in earth-friendly and fun settings. The products are expected to hit specialty retailers and the catalog segment in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. this December.
Other Planetpals licenses include eco-friendly toys from Ceaco, natural bars from Dante Confections and kids music from Digital Sound Productions.
