Sakar International Announces New Licensing Agreement with Sesame Workshop to Produce New Line of Audio and Electronics Accessories

Sakar International announced it has inked a new licensing agreement with Sesame Workshop to produce a new line of audio and electronics accessories featuring the lovable characters from Sesame Street, the most popular and award-winning children's television program in the world. Sakar announced the new license and product line at the 2014 Toy Industry Association's Fall Toy Preview going on now through October 9 at the Dallas Market Center/World Trade Center. This ubiquitous growth makes Sakar's new character-themed products a perfect fit for the digital generation. The new line will include a range of headphones, earbuds and speakers, and phone and tablet cases, all compatible with any mobile device. Additional products, including karaoke machines, musical instruments and computer accessories, may also be added to the lineup. The first round of the new Sesame Street products is expected to hit store shelves this spring.
