Toronto-based children’s content producer Guru Studio is delighted to announce the appointment of Haven Licensing as its licensing agent in Australia for its hit series True and the Rainbow Kingdom and newest preschool series Pikwik Pack.
Haven will lead the licensing program for both brands in Australia across all consumer products and L&M including toys and games, apparel, publishing, housewares, accessories, food and drink, and live events.
Having previously acquired True and the Rainbow Kingdom Seasons 1 to 3, 9Go! has quickly acquired season four which launched in May 2021 and is now airing every weekday at 9:30am and weekends at 8:00am. Pikwik Pack is currently available on Disney+ in Australia/New Zealand.
True and the Rainbow Kingdom is kicking off its consumer products roll out in Australia with a full line of toys from United Smile and distribution by Big Balloon set to launch this month at Target. Haven has also signed Caprice for apparel, with nightwear and daywear to hit retail later this year.
