New York (September, 2018) – Oddbods, the multi award-winning, Emmy nominated children’s program from One Animation, takes a leap off the screen and into the toy aisle with its highly anticipated new toy and plush line, exclusively sold at Target stores nationwide. Already an international phenomenon, Oddbods is a non-dialogue animated series that follows the comedic adventures of seven hilarious, very individual and quirky friends as they survive the perils of everyday life, where ordinary situations spiral into extraordinary events.
Netflix is Oddbods’ exclusive broadcast partner in the US for the show’s 7-minute format, whilst the short-form sketches can be seen on Hulu, Amazon and YouTube.
The new line brings the Oddbods world to life through play, as it successfully captures their humorous and highly relatable personalities through a collection of interactive toys and plush.
“We are thrilled to release the new Oddbods toy and plush line with our exclusive retail partner Target just in time for this holiday season,” says Sashim Parmanand, CEO of One Animation. “As one of the most-viewed shows on kids TV across the globe, with over five billion views across its YouTube channels, a toy and plush line was a natural step for the brand as we look to bring a creative, fun, engaging and decidedly Oddbods line of products to consumers this fall.”
The line further underscores the unique personality of each character and reinforces the importance of celebrating difference and individuality, which is at the core of the brand. Included in the line, that is now available at all Target stores nationwide, are the following products:
