Vivid Imaginations To Start To Release Merchandise Based On The Popular Animated Preschool Nick Jr. UK Series "Tickety Toc" In The UK And France During Autumn And Winter 2012; HIT Entertainment And AB Studio Licensing Extend Campaign To Introduce A "Angelina Ballerina" Curriculum In North American Dance Schools

From Animation Insider:
Tickety Toc is a relatively new preschool property from The Foundation (Maidstone, Kent) and FunnyFlux Entertianment (Seoul, South Korea). The animated series, managed by Zodiak Rights, is currently eyeing a number of new air dates across Nickelodeon's global network, including the United States. But on the licensing front, it's all about the toys.

Vivid Imaginations is on board for the production of toys for the UK and French markets (autumn to winter); toy ranges will include plush dolls, playsets, vehicle/track sets, collectible figures, and puzzles.

The CG preschool series Tickety Toc, which focuses on teaching kids about friendship and problem-solving, launched on Nick Jr. (UK) this past spring season, and has debuts scheduled for France 5 (France) and Nickelodeon (United States) in the coming weeks.
Also from Animation Insider:
In the area of event promotions, HIT Entertainment calls upon AB Studio Licensing for an extended campaign to introduce Angelina Ballerina curriculum to dance studios across North America. The curriculum (, developed by dance education specialist and author Beverly Spell, features Angelina's (Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps) voice as she guides young dancers through their movement lessons. The curriculum plan spans nine months beginning this autumn. Each month, the Dance Academy will focus on a different Angelina Ballerina storybook, with classes teaching beginner ballet for children ages three to six. Partner dance studios can also elect to host Angelina Ballerina character appearances and a one-week summer dance camp.
"Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps" is a show on Nickelodeon UK and Ireland's preschool channel, Nick Jr. UK and Ireland.
