Spin Master has signed a deal to become the master toy licensee for Ms. Rachel – the popular YouTube channel for babies and toddlers.
The Ms. Rachel collection – designed in collaboration with child development experts – will launch in Fall 2024 and span plush, puzzles, playsets, vehicles, role-play toys, and learning aides.
“We are thrilled to be Ms. Rachel’s partner in play,” said Doug Wadleigh, Spin Master’s Executive Vice President and Head of Global Toy Brands.
“As a progressive and trusted voice in early childhood learning, Ms. Rachel is a wonderful fit for our toy portfolio and will support Spin Master’s expansion into early childhood and developmental play.”
Rachel Griffin-Accurso, co-creator of the Ms. Rachel YouTube channel, added: “Play is the most powerful way a child can learn. We have a big responsibility to fulfil the trust parents have in us and – together with Spin Master – we’re excited to deliver the high-quality toys our audience has been asking for, to help them learn, bond, and thrive.”
Laura Henderson, Spin Master’s Executive Vice President, M&A and Special Projects, continued: “Ms. Rachel has become a trusted resource for today’s parents; loved for her inclusive and engaging approach, providing tools and inspiration for parents to help their young children learn and develop through play.
