JAKKS Gets Master Toy License for Gigantosaurus

Paris-based producer Cyber Group Studios recently signed a multi-year agreement with toy and consumer products company JAKKS Pacific for the animated preschool series, Gigantosaurus. The deal gives JAKKS rights to produce and market various merchandise inspired by the series, including preschool toys, playsets, outdoor furniture, costumes, and accessories. The first set of toys and books from Templar will arrive in Fall 2019.

Gigantosaurus is an adaptation of the same-titled bestselling book written by Jonny Duddle. The series uses CG animation to bring the adventures of the four young dinosaur friends to life, giving young viewers the chance to accompany the dinos as they explore their prehistoric world. Together, the dinosaurs Mazu, Tiny, Bill, and Rocky try to discover the secrets of the biggest, fiercest dinosaur of all: the elusive Gigantosaurus.

The Gigantosaurus series is launching via Disney Junior worldwide in early 2019, followed by a rollout across major broadcast networks including France Televisions and Super RTL.

“It’s a pleasure to see all of the Gigantosaurus characters come to life and to have the opportunity to collaborate on a major toy line with a dynamic company such as JAKKS Pacific,” commented Cyber Group Studios chairman & CEO, Pierre Sissmann.

“We are thrilled to be named master toy licensee for Gigantosaurus,” said Tara Hefter, Senior Vice President, Global Licensing, JAKKS Pacific. “Gigantosaurus is an adorable series based on a beloved bestselling book and we look forward to bringing these loveable dinosaurs to life in a whole new way.”
