More Tree Fu Tom Tie-Ins Announced

Following yesterday's announcement about Tree Fu Tom toys, FreemantleMedia Entertainment have revealed more Tree Fu Tom-related goodies aimed at their young (and not so young!) fans.

They have struck six more deals with partners for the distribution of products in the UK and Ireland next year. Items that will be made available include clothing, bags, plates and cups and bedroom furnishings. Unfortunately it looks as if Tom fans will have to wait until early 2013 to get their hands on any of the merchandise, including the toys announced yesterday.

From the website:

FME secures six deals as interest in new pre-school property soars.
FremantleMedia Enterprises has revealed a raft of new partners in the UK and Eire for its pre-school brand Tree Fu Tom.
Random House Children's Publishers has signed up for publishing; Aykroyd and TDP are on board for children's nightwear and underwear; Trade Mark Collections will produce bags, wallets and umbrellas; Spearmark has been chosen for lunchware, tableware, drinkware and lighting; Worlds Apart has bedroom and play accessories; while Character World has picked up bedroom textiles, furniture and accessories.
Under the four-year deal, RHCP has the publishing rights for all categories, apart from annuals.
The licensing programme will begin its full roll out next year with toys, publishing and apparel launching in spring/summer, followed by all other major categories in autumn/winter.
