Spin Master Corp. (TSX:TOY; www.spinmaster.com), a leading global children’s entertainment company, announced today that it has renewed its global licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) and DC for the iconic Batman franchise and other DC Super Heroes. Spin Master first joined forces with WBCP in 2018 as the toy licensee for DC in the action figure, play set, role-play and vehicle categories for the period of 2019-2022 and has now extended the relationship for a four-year term beginning in 2023 through to 2026.
“It’s been an honor to work with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on this heroic and innovative line of action figures, vehicles and play sets, bringing the adventures and stories of Batman, DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains into fans’ homes around the world,” said Chris Beardall, Spin Master’s President, Toys and Chief Commercial Officer. “The timing of this renewal is perfect as we head into a blockbuster year for DC, with its incredible slate of feature films hitting the big screen in 2022 coinciding with custom toy collections for each. Our innovative approach to toy design combined with our meticulous attention to detail has helped to achieve record-setting sales for Spin Master’s DC toy line.”
“DC is one of the most iconic brands in the world, and we’re excited to continue our partnership with Spin Master to bring the characters and stories to life through inspired toy collections,” said Sam Bushy, Senior VP and General Manager North America and head of e-Commerce for Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
