Peppa Pig is a children’s animation television show about a pig named Peppa and her family, as they go about everyday life. Its popularity is down to children’s ability to relate to Peppa and her personality. From the incessant questions and the relationship with her sibling, to her endearing mischievous streak, children see themselves in this delightfully cute character.

First aired in 2004, Peppa Pig has grown into the number one pre-school property in the UK and is a $1billion global TV and merchandise franchise. The creators, Mark Baker, Neville Astley and Phil Davies, will be producing an additional 52 episodes as part of the £140mn acquisition deal by Entertainment One, whose chief financial officer claims the control will allow them to drive the brand to $2billion in global sales over the next 5 years. Baby Brands Direct wholesales this key pre-school licence to registered retailers, which includes a selection of baby comfort blankets and rattles in both characters Peppa and George.

Peppa Pig co-owner Entertainment One, took control of the UK producer Astley Baker Davies, the creator of the hit cartoon character in order to gain an 85% control of the franchise. Commenting on the acquisition in 2015, Giles Willits, chief financial officer stated, “We think this is a property that can double in size over the next five years. We took $1bn in retail sales around the world through the brand last year (2015), we think that can go to $2bn in five years. Peppa Pig is too big of an asset to not control it completely.” High quality supply of baby and nursery gear of this loved character merchandise can be obtained from wholesaler Baby Brands Direct, to independent gift and nursery retailers.


Gyms, Tummy Time and Playmats step in when parents need to rest and baby needs to be entertained. Of all the myriad potential purchases that a new parent can make, a good play mat or activity gym is among the most likely to earn its keep. A safe, comfortable and stimulating place where the infant is happy to lie, and later sit, is likely to prove invaluable.

A recent growth in purchasing large playmats has been observed as tummy time can help babies develop strong head, neck and shoulder muscles and promote certain motor skills. Tummy time can also prevent the back of baby's head from becoming flat. Research also suggests that babies who spend time on their tummies crawl on their stomachs earlier than do babies who do not practice tummy time. With all this essential information is no wonder that sales keep rising. Browse the following pages to uncover more benefits of our baby products that will boost your trade too.
