• California-based Zazzle has been granted the rights to manufacture a wide range of on-demand It’s Happy Bunny products – including but not limited to t-shirts, hats, bumper stickers, stickers, magnets, mugs, posters, postcards and even postage stamps – to be custom imprinted, embroidered, and/or etched with the Bunny’s cute image and hilariously impolite sayings. Items are to be sold via the Zazzle.com website and other official Zazzle web outlets.
• Quebec’s Axeso-Mode International Imports Ltd. has been granted the right to create and market It’s Happy Bunny socks, slipper socks, leggings, slippers, and air fresheners for the Canadian market. This deal was brokered by CPLG Canada.
Postal also confirmed the launch of a new It’s Happy Bunny App for iOS devices (e.g., iPhone, iTouch) from digital content licensee Bare Tree Media.
• It’s Happy Bunny digital content licensee Bare Tree Media has launched a new It’s Happy Bunny App entitled “It’s Snappy Bunny.” Available now to download on the App Store, “It’s Snappy Bunny” is a free photo sharing app inspired by favorite It’s Happy Bunny poses and expressions. Fans of the sassy and sarcastic Bunny can create their own themed photos with cute images and silly text, and share with friends through email or social media.
“We love It’s Happy Bunny’s unique brand of humor,” said Robert Ferrari, CEO and founder, Bare Tree Media. “It used to be that kids plastered Bunny stickers everywhere, but now more than ever, teens are expressing themselves digitally. The It’s Snappy Bunny app allows us to help grow the brand to meet its audience where they spend most of their time – on smartphones and social networks.”
