JAKKS announced a new product line for the animated action and fantasy series Winx Club. Both the brand new CGI epsiodes and the product line are set to debut in Fall 2012.
The products include dolls, playsets, role play, dress-up and Halloween costumes.
Winx Club is an animated action and fantasy series set in the mystical dimension of Magix, where three schools educate modern fairies, witches and supernatural warriors from all over the universe. Bloom, a young fairy in training from Earth, and five of her schoolmates form the Winx Club to combat their arch enemies. Winx Club first debuted in Italy six years ago and quickly became an international hit and even gave rise to a CG feature film.
Winx Club features positive role models for girls featuring strong heroines that girls can aspire and relate to. The Winx Club characters embody themes of girl empowerment by using their strengths, smarts and magical powers to defeat evil while focusing on the importance of friendship and teamwork.
Nickelodeon is scheduled to begin airing Winx Club in the U.S. in June 2011.
