Blu Goblin releases Danger Mouse collectibles to raise funds for KidsOut

Published on: 20th June 2022

Direct-to-consumer online platform Blu Gobin is releasing a Danger Mouse original figurine collection to mark the character’s 40th year on our screens, with proceeds helping to support the charity KidsOut.

Blu Goblin creates premium, limited edition, exclusively licensed collectible models, replicas, figures and art, from nostalgia to modern day, across the worlds of entertainment, sport and gaming. Proceeds from every single transaction raise money for good causes.

Blu Goblin’s products, packaging and associated certification are ethically sourced and sustainably manufactured. Each limited edition is available exclusively through www.blugoblin.com, having been created to celebrate a specific event, anniversary, launch or major milestone. Every Blu Goblin drop is unique and availability is strictly limited.

Danger Mouse, one of the stars of The Queen’s Jubilee Pageant, is the centrepiece of an exclusive, limited edition, original figurine collection designed and developed by Blu Goblin to celebrate his 40th year on our screens. Supporting KidsOut, the collection was premiered at the star-studded KidsOut London Question of Sport evening last Thursday. Blu Goblin donated one set of these exclusive figurines to the fundraising auction; the winning bid was an incredible £1,000 towards the amazing fundraising total for the evening of over £50,000.

Gordon Moulds, CEO of KidsOut, says: “We are thrilled to be part of Danger Mouse’s 40th Anniversary. We would like to thank Blu Goblin for bringing together the partnership and developing the exclusive products, and for Boat Rocker’s support in granting the licence for the Danger Mouse figurines to be sold on Blu Goblin’s website. Proceeds from the figurines will go to supporting children who have escaped serious domestic violence and found sanctuary in a women’s refuge”.

Danger Mouse, based on the 1960s TV series Danger Man with Patrick McGoohan, was originally created by Cosgrove Hall and voiced by Sir David Jason. The new generation of the cartoon series is owned by Boatrocker Studios, with Danger Mouse voiced by Alexander Armstrong.

Nicola Herrmann VP, Brand Management & Licensing (UK, AUS, EMEA) Boat Rocker, says: “This partnership with Blu Goblin is a great example of how brands can connect to support charitable causes and we are delighted to be embarking on this exciting new mission that supports KidsOut.”

“We are delighted to have brought together Danger Mouse and KidsOut,” adds Grant Morgan, CEO of Blu Goblin. “The world has changed dramatically, as have consumer habits. Brands must now demonstrate that they care and stand for more than just profit. Consumers want the brands they love to commit to positive social and environmental impact, to make a meaningful contribution to the quality of their lives, while also helping others. Charitable causes benefit from perfectly matched brand partnerships, like this, which bring PR, donor acquisition and most importantly funds to deliver their services.”
