Chicago, IL: Children’s book publisher Phoenix International Publications (PIP) and Kids2, Inc. are celebrating international rights expansion for Baby Einstein books with licensed children’s book imprint PI Kids.
“We believe the future belongs to the curious, and we infuse this into every Baby Einstein solution we design,” says Karen Neblett, Executive Vice President Business Strategy & Development. “Baby Einstein’s iconic brand power in early-learning curiosity-driven products and PI Kids’ innovation in interactive books with imaginative play are a natural fit.”
Board books with a variety of novelty features in Spanish, Portuguese, and Worldwide English (excluding the United States and Canada) will hit markets in 2021.
“We are thrilled to be extending our successful partnership with Kids2 into one with a more global focus. We look forward to seeing the line expand into new publishing categories that broaden our product portfolio and which help to build the Baby Einstein brand in markets beyond the United States,” says Sophie Partridge, Executive Vice President & Global Publisher.
Lead titles for Summer 2021 cover key early-learning concepts for babies and toddlers such as colors, seasons, and movement, which ignite curiosity and encourage sensory exploration.
This follows North American rights expansion in color and activity, bath, and cloth book formats earlier this year.
