Pressman Toy Corporation, known for delighting families with classic games and innovative licensed products for nearly 100 years, announces a licensing deal with Saban Brands to develop games based on the #1 kids’ action series Power Rangers Samurai. The series is currently appearing on both Nickelodeon and Nicktoons, five days a week. Pressman Toy’s games based on this series will be available at mass and specialty retailers nationwide in June 2012.
“The Power Rangers have been an iconic staple in the lives of children for nearly 20 years,” saidJim Pressman, president of Pressman Toy Corporation. “When we learned that the series was being revamped by its original creator, Haim Saban, we knew the Power Rangers Samuraiseries would be sensational. We are excited to enhance this phenomenon with our line of games.”
“We are excited to partner with Pressman Toy to bring all-new Power Rangers Samurai board games to kids and kids-at-heart nationwide,” said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. “Games are the perfect way to tap into the values of the Rangers and work as a team to have fun and make friends.”
Combining comedy with friendship, teamwork and action-filled storylines, the all-new half-hour series, Power Rangers Samurai, features a new cast of Rangers and never-before-seen villains, as well as high-octane action, martial arts and advanced special effects. Emphasizing the importance of teamwork, responsibility and helping others by following the adventures of a group of ordinary young people who “morph” into superheroes, it is the #1 television series among boys.
Pressman Toy plans to introduce a range of “Power Rangers Samurai” skill, action and memory games based on the series, for kids of all ages, each retailing for under $20.
