WowWee’s Fingerlings continue to enjoy quite the success. Now they will get a series of books. Penguin Random House will create them and they will have a global release. Both companies plan for quite the mixture of book formats. DK also joins the team, Toy News reported.
The book series will feature lots of formats. Among them we will find handbooks and guides. There are also activity and sticker books, journals, etc.
Of course, fans of the Fingerlings will also get to enjoy picture books and Mad Libs. The first three titles are going to hit the stores this August.
The titles are: Fingerlings Mad Libs Junior, Fingerlings Sticker Activity Book and Fingerling Meet the Fingerlings Reader. Later in the year we will also enjoy an original story picture book. Expect this in time for the holidays.
“We are so excited to be partnering with WowWee and DK to bring a fun and imaginative collection of publishing to the world of Fingerlings. We cannot wait for Fingerlings fans to get their hands on these books”, Francesco Sedita, president and publisher of Penguin Young Readers licensing imprint, said.
“The Fingerlings brand is all about feelings of friendship, fun and fantastical experiences – right at your fingertips – and our partners at Penguin Young Readers and DK capture all these elements to share with our fans. We are super excited about our partnership and look forward to continuing to bring the world of Fingerlings to life for our beloved Fingerlings friends”, said Sydney Wiseman, brand manager and creator of Fingerlings, WowWee.
The books will try to capitalize on the enormous popularity of the Fingerlings. The funky characters won the 2018 Collectible Toy of the Year and overall Toy of the Year Awards.
