Following the success of the PAW Patrol tour launch, the new Nick Jr. touring exhibit will be a celebration of the much loved characters from PAW Patrol, Top Wing, Blaze and the Monster Machines and Shimmer and Shine, recreated in toy bricks to tour the UK.
Live Company Group plc, the owners of BRICKLIVE, today announces the second themed touring exhibit following the successful launch of PAW Patrol in Blackburn in August. The set of 16 Nick Jr. models go into production shortly, featuring a host of Nick Jr.’s most popular properties including Top Wing, Shimmer & Shine, Blaze and the Monster Machines alongside Ryder with the PAW Patrol pups.
The Nick Jr. characters - presented and built by BRICKLIVE – will take in the region of 3,000 hours to build by a team of highly skilled Bright Bricks builders using over 500,000 toy bricks. The touring exhibit will also have interactive features including a sit-on Magic Carpet selfie zone from Shimmer and Shine, plus a walk-in 160,000 brick selfie zone of Blaze from Blaze and the Monster Machines. The models will form an engaging trail to create a memorable and fun experience for all visitors and families.
BRICKLIVE touring shows have enjoyed huge success with the UK’s favourite visitor attractions over the last six months. Some highlights from 2019 so far include the SAFARI tour which enjoyed early summer in Whipsnade Zoo, Marwell Zoo launched BRICKOSAURS in April including an 8m Tyrannosaurus Rex and Blackburn BID launched the PAW Patrol models in Blackburn Town Centre in August. BRICKLIVE touring shows are the perfect addition to any visitor attraction and come in many shapes and sizes. They’ve been popping up in zoos, visitor attractions, shopping malls and town centres to drive footfall and visitor numbers with engaging trails of highly detailed brick models.
Demand for the new PAW Patrol touring models has been overwhelming since July with five bookings for 2019 and 2020 already confirmed so Nickelodeon and BRICKLIVE have brought forward the design and build schedule for the amazing new Nick Jr. models. Further news on the locations of the Nick Jr. multi-property models will be announced in due course.
Andy Smith, MD for Bricklive Group, said: "The first few months working closely with Nickelodeon to launch PAW Patrol have been a blast, so to keep the pace up we are already well under way with the new Nick Jr. models. We very much look forward to building on this success in our second iteration of this partnership."
Virginia Monaghan, VP Marketing, Commercial and Events, Nickelodeon UK and Northern and Eastern Europe, said: “We’re excited to bring our audience’s favourite characters to life once again with the BRICKLIVE team. The PAW Patrol models were so impressive and we look forward to delighting families across the UK from Autumn 2019.”
Tours and venues will be announced at a later date.
