Zynga and Hasbro enter merchandising agreement
Toy maker to introduces lines based on Zynga properties from Autumn
Social giant Zynga has signed a merchandising agreement with toy maker Hasbro which will see the company's most popular IP turned into physical products from the Autumn.
The deal also includes the opportunity to create toys which are dual branded with both Zynga and Hasbro IP. The cost of the licence has not been revealed.
It's also not known if the deal could potentially operate both ways, with Zynga including Hasbro IP, such as Transformers, Beyblade or My Little Pony, in its games.
As Rovio's Angry Birds has shown most recently, game merchandising can be big business - the Finnish studio now produces plushies, clothing and a board game related to its mega-franchise.
