New signings OTL Technologies, Blueprint Collections and Alligator Products further build on a successful start to 2023.
OTL Technologies will be launching headphones, walkie talkies and microphones for both Bluey and Hey Duggee, with the products expected to launch in the UK and EMEA from autumn/winter 2023.
