The preschool series “The Hive” is taking off globally with high ratings in the U.K. and Australia and a long line of licensing partners.

In the U.K., recent partners include Avanquest for interactive games for iPad and iPhone; Mookie Toys as master toy partner with a recently released line of plush; LeapFrog for content on the LeapPad tablet and Leapster games console; as well as EMI Publishing, Moonpig, Blues Clothing, Jupiter Toys and Aykroyds TDP.
