‘Fixies’ and ‘Tima and Toma’ expand their presence in South Korea

Riki Projects in South Korea

The group of companies ‘Riki’ has signed an agreement on the development of animation projects ‘Fixies’ and ‘Tima and Toma’ in South Korea with the promotion and licensing agency Blink Inc.
The partner will present the brands at the International Character Licensing Fair Korea Character Licensing Fair, which begins its work on July 13.

‘We are pleased to announce that the projects of the Riki Group, which have achieved success not only in the Russian but also in the international markets, have found such an active partner in the strategically important territory for us. We highly appreciated Blink’s plans to create a large–scale licensing program in the main consumer categories and promote brands in Korea,’ commented Yulia Nemchina, CEO of Riki Group.

It should be noted that the series ‘Tima and Toma’ successfully launched in Korea last fall. For three months on the air of the Daekyo Nori Q channel, the series was in the top 10 best foreign shows and became the 12th among all projects. Following the TV premiere, the series was released on the platforms SKBtv, Yanadookids (formerly KakaoKids), LGU+tv.

In turn, ‘Fixies’ are also available in Korea on the main state educational TV channel EBS.

‘The Blink team is very pleased to cooperate with the Riki Group of Companies in Korea. In our market, where many brands are available, Blink is constantly looking for projects that are different from their competitors, which are open to experiments in order to develop and adapt to a rapidly changing environment. ‘Tima and Toma’, ‘Fixies’ and many other IP ‘Riki’ are popular all over the world. And we hope to adequately present these brands to the Korean audience,’ says Daniel Shin, CEO of Blink Inc.

Partnership with Blink Inc. will help in the creation and launch of commercially successful licensing programs in the main categories: ‘publishing’, ‘food’, ‘clothing’, ‘cosmetics’, ‘toys and creative kits’.
