PeanutsLogoNew York, NY (June 17, 2014) – (Virtual Press Office) — The world’s most stylin’ beagle, Snoopy, once again sets a new aspirational standard as Peanuts Worldwide announces a wide array of new licensing agreements with some of the world’s hottest high-end brands. The products—which range from Fay apparel to Lancaster handbags to Lladro figurines—will appear at retail throughout 2014 and 2015.

“We are delighted that Snoopy continues to be a trend-setter around the world—as evidenced by these important licensing deals with international brands who have well-earned reputations for fresh, forward thinking,” said Leigh Anne Brodsky, Managing Director, Peanuts Worldwide. “We anticipate that these high-end goods will inspire a whole host of exciting new products at a variety of price points and continue to reinforce that Peanuts is a fashion and lifestyle brand as it heads into its 65th year.”

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
