Pop Pixie Closes New European Licensing Deals! Pop Piksi stvaraju nove poslove u Evropi!

Fashion and fun Follow top TV Ratings across Europe

(Loreto, Italy, March 16, 2011) Rainbow’s Pixie property has entered a slew of new licensing deals following its record breaking debut on broadcasters across Europe.

In Italy, where the Pixies have had a strong following since their debut on Winx Club in 2007, fashion led the list of new licensees: Marini Silvano (caps), Moda Bimbo (bags and fashion accessories), and Effegi Style (shoes) will cover the Italian market. They will support existing licensees such as Mirtillo (apparel, Italy), Carel (apparel, France), and Leomil (shoes in Europe excluding Italy, apparel in Central Europe) in giving PopPixie a massive presence in the world of fashion.

Other new deals include World Cart paper pocket handkerchiefs and Paben key rings, figurines, and alarm clocks in Italy, Cimpa underwear, nightwear and socks in Turkey, Prime food decoration and Isotoner antislip socks in France and FSE, Jose Juan Albero Puerto towels in Spain, and SAB towels, bedding and curtains in Turkey.

Part of PopPixie’s rapid growth in licensees is due to a Master Toy License with Bandai, its proven success in Italy in 2007 - when it sold 12 million Ferrero eggs and had a No.1 Fashion Doll - and its excellent TV ratings so far. Amongst 4-6 year olds, PopPixie reached peak ratings of 45% on France 3 (October 2010), 58% on Spain’s Clan TV (October 2010) and 58% on TVI Portugal (November 2010). The series has also begun airing on K-Net (Africa), Canal Panda (Portugal), Kanal D (Turkey), RAI (Italy), Alter (Greece), Junior and MTV3 (Finland), MBC (Middle East and Africa), and Noga (Israel).

PopPixie is an animated comedy for 4-10 year olds which takes place in Pixieville, a fantastical dimension where gnomes and magical animals live happily together with endlessly entertaining Pixies. But the peace and tranquility are often upset by rabble-rousing Elves, naughty kids always on the lookout for a little trouble and harmless fun. Magic, adventure and humor abound with these unforgettable characters, first introduced in 2007 in the super-popular Winx Club series two. TV ratings soon went through the roof and the colourful Pixies achieved immediate fame and impressive licensing results, prompting Rainbow to give the charming characters their very own TV show.
