Amanda Clifford: “The brand is so bright and colourful, celebrating individuality and friendships.”

Under the partnership, the ‘Adventures with… Oddbods’ issue will go on sale in the UK from 10th February.

One Animation’s Oddbods airs in 180 countries across 90 broadcasters worldwide. The brand has also generated 25 billion digital views and averages 14 million views on YouTube per day.

The magazine will follow the quirky but charming Oddbods on their adventures and will feature branded stories, puzzles, colouring and more. The magazine will also include a pizza set toy, which ties in with the magazine content and provides imaginative play value, say the publishers.

“We are so excited to be publishing ‘Adventures with… Oddbods’ magazine,” says Amanda Clifford, Signature Publishing’s Editorial Director. “The brand is so bright and colourful, celebrating individuality and friendships, and creating an Oddbods magazine has been an absolute joy. We’re sure it’s going to be a great success and bring laughter, learning and fun to every child who reads it.”

Sashim Parmanand, CEO at One Animation, added: “We’re always looking for creative ways to bring the Oddbods characters to life for fans, and this partnership with Signature Publishing provides a perfect opportunity to achieve just that. Signature Publishing has effectively captured the Oddbods’ spirit and created a really fun and engaging magazine, which we know is going to be a huge hit with our fans.”

According to Signature Publishing, the three-time Emmy Award-nominated slap-stick comedy series follows the charming adventures of seven adorable, highly unique friends. Together, despite their differences, they survive the perils of everyday life, unintentionally turning ordinary situations into unexpected, extraordinary, and always humorous events. Oddbods celebrates individuality in a funny, warm and unexpected way. After all, there’s a little odd in everyone!

‘Adventures with… Oddbods’ magazine is available to buy in the UK at supermarkets, newsagents and magazine stockists and is priced at £4.99.
