Jumbo Games teams with Mattel for Thomas & Friends foam puzzles

Jumbo Games has embarked on a new partnership with Mattel to develop a range of Thomas and Friends foam puzzles.

The new range will be available within the UK from January next year and will feature Jumbo’s popular foam puzzle formats, Giant Foam Floor Puzzle and 4in1 shaped Bath Puzzles.

“Thomas and Friends is a fantastic evergreen property that is hugely popular with parents and children, so it’s great to be working with Mattel,” said Stewart Middleton, managing director, Jumbo Games.

“It’s for this reason that we are really excited to introduce this popular license to our portfolio and look forward to the products entering store later this year.”

Jo Gunn, category manager at Mattel, added: “This is a fantastic opportunity to extend our relationship with Jumbo Games.

“We are looking forward to offering new and exciting lines to Thomas fans in this important category.”
