strategy for Oddbods is transporting the characters from the digital realm and into the physical
world. This new partnership with Redan Publishing will offer fans an exciting way to interact and
play with their favourite Oddbods characters beyond the screen, and we look forward to seeing
the magazines hit shelves this month.”
Julie Jones, Managing Director at Redan Publishing, added: “When deciding on which new
characters to add to our successful pre-school compilation magazines, we take into account
how on trend the brand is, whether it will work from an educational standpoint and most
importantly will it be popular with our readers. What attracted us to Oddbods is the wonderful
mix of unique characters. Every child will be able to relate to one of the characters and this
encourages children to celebrate difference and individuality especially when it’s all presented in
such a fun and humorous way.”
