Cyber Group Secures New Soft Lines Licensees for Gigantosaurus


Gigantosaurus, the new CGI animated preschool series from Cyber Group Studios, is expanding its licensing program into a range of apparel and soft home fashions.

The series-inspired products from American Marketing Enterprises (sleepwear), Centric Socks (hosiery), Children’s Apparel Network (tees, hoodies, sportswear) and Jay Franco (bedding, bath accessories, beach towels, travel items, room décor) are set to make their way to retail beginning spring 2020. These soft lines partners join Cyber Group master toy licensee JAKKS Pacific, whose debut offerings will begin arriving at retail this fall.

Based on Jonny Duddle’s bestselling book of the same name and directed by award-winning director Olivier Lelardoux, Gigantosaurus stars four dinosaur friends who explore the world beyond their nests, facing their individual fears and working together to solve problems. The series launched on Disney Channel in the U.S. in January and was subsequently added to the Disney Junior lineup. It is set to debut worldwide on Disney this year in most territories and premiere on Netflix in 2020.

Richard Goldsmith, president and CEO of Cyber Group Studios in the U.S., said: “We are thrilled to welcome our first group of soft lines licensees to the Gigantosaurus family, joining JAKKS and our award-winning publishing partner, Templar Publishing. Each of these companies is a recognized market leader in their respective category and work with some of the biggest-name licenses in the business. All are well-suited to help us make a huge impact in the preschool space with Gigantosaurus.”

Jason Korfine, partner at Licensing Street LLC, the licensing agency for the brand in the U.S., added: “We are delighted to have such top-tier licensing partners onboard for Gigantosaurus. We look forward to working with these standout companies to translate this series’ instantly-relatable dinosaur characters, fun-filled adventures and positive messages for preschoolers into an exciting array of offerings that will further strengthen fans’ connection to the popular show.”
