RANDOLPH, N.J., Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Cra-Z-Art, a prime manufacturer and leader in trendy toy, art, and school supply products, announced today a strategic expansion of their current licensing agreement with Nickelodeon to market and distribute pre-made Slime, DIY Slime kits and modeling compounds globally. Previously, the company only sold those items in the U.S. The merchandise, which will be branded Nickelodeon, will include items that allow kids to make their own version of the network's iconic and beloved green goo. The Slime and modeling compounds will also come in pre-made forms that come in a variety of sizes, scents, colors, and textures, including glitter, neon, and glow in the dark.
Slime has continued to be a craze with kids and has spread virally via social media. Cra-Z-Art is known for discovering hot trends and quickly bringing quality products to market. The company has been producing Nickelodeon Slime in the U.S. for three years.
"Cra-Z-Art is very excited to be expanding our great partnership with Nickelodeon to produce slime and modeling compounds in global markets, in addition to the U.S. We quickly saw the slime craze gain momentum three years ago and successfully partnered with Nickelodeon, the iconic home of Slime, to build a phenomenal business in the USA and we're excited to mirror that success globally! Of course, Nickelodeon Slime and modeling compounds continue to be a perfect complement to our current popular arts and crafts segment. Like all of our great products, these items allow kids to be creative and explore a fun world of imaginative play at home while also encouraging STEM learning," said Cra-Z-Art Chairman, Lawrence Rosen.
