SmileyWorld continues to enjoy growth through France’s retailer of babies and kidswear Orchestra. The two businesses begun co-creating in 2016 and in just over a year Orchestra have become The Smiley Company’s third largest grossing apparel and accessories partner.
 
For Winter 2017 Orchestra have just launched 30 unisex styles aimed at newborns and also 27 styles aimed at boys from newborn to 12 months old. The brand has also launched 16 athletic inspired styles for girls aged from 2 -10 year olds and 14 styles for boys aged 2-10 years.

BrandTrends Survey Reveals Entertainment Brands Miss Out on Key Sales

According to a Kidz Global BrandsTrends survey, entertainment brands that ranked high on the brand popularity index (BPI) for French girls ages 7 to 9 include Minions, Ice Age, Lego, Playmobil, Lego Friends, Disney Princess, and Frozen. In terms of future purchase intentions (FPI), more than 75 percent of girls want a Frozen product—the favorite brand overall—and around 70 percent want a Disney Princess item. Brands such as Minions, Ice Age, and Lego rank high on BPI, but don’t perform as well in the girls’ FPI.
 
For example, despite being the second most popular entertainment brand, less than 45 percent of girls would purchase a licensed product with the Minions on it. In contrast, Kidz Global would expect this number to be approximately 65 percent. The same can be said for Gulli, which is the second most popular brand and in a similar position as Minions. For Ice Age, this number was just under 50 percent, despite it coming in fourth place for its popularity. The only brand that ranked higher in popularity than these four was Frozen, which was in a much higher position on the FPI ranking.
 
Even though some brands may not be as popular overall, the brands that girls were more likely to purchase include Frozen, Disney Princess, Lego Friends, Barbie, and Disney Fairies/Tinkerbell.
 
Data shows that leading brands miss key opportunities by assuming their female customer is not interested in a wider scope of brands and product categories. To avoid losing major revenue opportunities and wider brand appeal and awareness, these products should be on display in stores and market this audience.
 
BrandTrends offers detailed and accurate data that is conducted twice a year to 42 countries globally. Thousands of kids and parents are interviewed on a range of questions to get the all-inclusive results. Due to the recent partnership with Junior City, Kidz Global enhanced the length of the survey with subtle findings from additional qualitative research.

Thomas & Friends for the Next Generation

Mattel, Inc., took centre stage at the MIP Junior World Premiere TV Screening in Cannes to unveil its new 26 x 11’ Series “Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures!”.

Heading into 2018, fans will see an exciting transformation of the program appealing directly to a new generation of fans.  The show will also be enhanced with several storylines tied to bringing to life in a preschool-friendly way the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by world leaders in 2015, with the intention of helping kids from a very early age develop into true global citizens. 
 
Kate Schlomann, VP and General Manager, Thomas & Friends, says: “The brand is currently undergoing an evolution to remain relevant for the next generation of parents and kids by opening up the world of Thomas & Friends so kids can discover the world around them. This in turn offers many new opportunities for the brand franchise, which takes Thomas & Friends from an evergreen brand to a must-have hot property!”

Executive Seeks New Challenges
 
I have 8 years experience of working for a large London Publishing house licensing book content to third parties. I am looking for a role which utilises my skills in negotiation and relationship building and can develop my experience within the licensing field. Having licensed book content to a wide variety of customers from national Newspapers to international Publishers I would relish the experience to work in a new industry, licensing new content to new clients.
