41 Entertainment and its Australian agent, Gaffney Global Licensing, have signed two new licensees for Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures in Australia and New Zealand.
Banter Toys and Collectibles will distribute the Commonwealth Toy & Novelty line from the U.S., which includes beanies, magnets, home décor, key chains, outdoor toys, balls and home goods; Caprice Australia will design an outerwear range that will include t-shirts, fleece, tops, jackets, shorts and pants as well as sleepwear, underwear, socks, swimwear, footwear and bags and backpacks.
“We are delighted to be working with Banter and Caprice on this exciting license,” says Fred Gaffney, partner, Gaffney Global. “Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures is a global hit property, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to Australia and New Zealand.”
Both lines will launch in November.
“Pac-Man is a well-loved brand across the globe, and popularity is still growing with a new legion of fans,” says Garry Isaacs, chief executive officer, Banter. “We are excited to partner up with 41e and Commonwealth to bring this iconic brand toy and novelty lines to Australia.”
41e manages the worldwide licensing program for the new TV series, which is based on the classic video game franchise owned by Namco Bandai Games.
