JAKKS Pacific and Saban Brands are continuing their licensing agreement for the Power Rangers property.

The multiyear deal provides JAKKS Pacific with the rights to exclusively manufacture, market and distribute adult and kids’ Halloween costumes, accessories and everyday dress-up items in the U.S., Canada and Latin America. The partnership also includes seasonal items such as ride-ons, ball pits, indoor furniture and several other categories in the U.S. and Canada.

The Power Rangers TV series is currently in its 24th season, Power Rangers Ninja Steel. The property also includes a number of live-action films such as the 2017 feature Saban’s Power Rangers.

“We are thrilled to continue our long-standing partnership with Saban Brands for its legendary superhero franchise,” said Tara Hefter, the senior VP of global licensing at JAKKS Pacific. “For 22 years, our line of costumes and everyday dress-up has inspired and ‘morphed’ fans into feeling like a superhero. Our new line of seasonal products will bring to life Power Rangers in new ways for fans of all ages to enjoy.”
