TOMY will make the toys for Ricky Zoom and will offer them in lots of markets. The animated series will be aimed at kids which like adventures and machines.
“Developed by the team behind PJ Masks, this new series is a CGI action comedy adventure that follows the adventures of Ricky, a little red motorbike with a zest for speed. The show centres around friendship, family and learning to stand on your own two ‘wheels’. Ricky is joined by a cast of young bikes, Scootio, Loop and DJ who live in Wheelford, a town made for bikes”, ToyNews reports.
The story has already gathered interest from several broadcasters. The first episodes will debut in France, Italy, Latin America and more. Chances are the number of TV stations will rise even more later this year.
Ricky Zoom will premiere from spring/summer 2019. “We are honoured and excited to have been chosen as global master toy partner for Ricky Zoom,” said Peter Henseler, president of TOMY International.
“The content is highly original and lends itself perfectly to creative, character-driven toy design. Our global team is building out an innovative product portfolio designed to bring all the excitement, adventure and fun that Ricky Zoom and his Bike Buddies experience in the show to life for kids around the world.”
What those toys are, we still don’t know. One thing is certain – if kids like Ricky Zoom, there will be a lot more toys and episodes.
