Japanese Toy Company TOMY on the other hand will be making the official toys for two new Pixar movies, the Hollywoord Reporter says. TOMY until now has handled licensed toys and merchandise for brands including Pokémon, Sonic the Hedgehog, John Deere and others.
Our goal is to become one of the largest toy companies in the world,” says Willie Wilkov, TOMY’s chief marketing officer, who is based in Oakbrook, Illinois. The company is not talking much about the stuffed animals, only about the rest of the toys, which is a pity. Nevertheless we should be able to see them in the stores soon as one of the movies is Inside Out and the toys are expected in May 2015. The second movie is Miles From Tomorrowland and the toys for it should be available in August 2015.
According to Marty Brochstein, SVP at the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association, toy companies this year will focus on franchises. Amongs them will be the popular stuffed animals like Paddington Bear for example. The stuffed animal “has always been an endearing bear and steady seller, but when the movie released, there was a huge surge in sales,” says Kate Karcher Clark, president of toymaker YOTTOY Productions to the online edition of Deadline.
