Things are about to get sticky for Annoying Orange and his kitchen pals. Leading entertainment management and production company The Collective has partnered with Play Visions, a leading provider of novelty items, to produce new lines, including stickers and temporary tattoos, inspired by Annoying Orange. The deals were brokered on behalf of The Collective by The Joester Loria Group (TJLG), the licensing agent for the Annoying Orange brand in North America.
Play Visions has developed several new products that will debut at retail this year, including Annoying Orange talking pens featuring a variety of hilarious phrases from the hit series and the first–ever Annoying Orange temporary tattoos. Each package of tattoos contains multiple fan favorite character images that can be easily applied and removed. Play Visions has also created 3-D lenticular stickers decorated with popular Annoying Orange characters and sayings. With every movement, the images change position in 3-D.
Play Visions joins a burgeoning licensing program for Annoying Orange. Recently, an Annoying Orange electronics line debuted from Sakar. A master toy deal was sliced with The Bridge Direct Inc. in 2011 for a line of talking plush, clip-ons, and collectible figures, which are available at specialty retailers including Toys “R” Us. Additionally, Annoying Orange apparel and accessories for young men and juniors from Hybrid Apparel LF USA and Accessory Innovations are now available at retail. A multi-platform marketing campaign also supports the rollout of all Annoying Orange products.
