The maker of Gigantosaurus is gearing up for its next big kids’ brands.
Cyber Group Studios tapped Retail Monster to develop full licensing programs in the U.S. for a pair of new CG animated series, an original production called The McFire Family and Press Start! based on the book series from Scholastic.
“Retail Monster has a proven track record of success in developing meter-moving consumer products programs, and we look forward to partnering with them to help establish and broaden the opportunities for these two new standout brands,” says Cyber Group Studios USA President Karen K. Miller.
Press Start! follows the adventures of Sunny and Rue Zaki, a brother and sister duo who discover a mysterious game controller that gives them the ability to enter the world of their favorite videogame. Inside the game world, they team up with their videogame idol, Super Rabbit Boy, and help him save the world, one 8-bit villain, at a time.
The McFire Family follows a family of firefighters whose ancestors were the very first firefighters in history. The legacy continues with three siblings, 12-year-old Tom, 10-year-old Sparkle, and 6-year-old Jax, the next generation of “super-firefighters”, who join their parents and grandpa on exciting rescue adventures. Together, they use cool vehicles and high-tech gear to save the day.
