Warner Bros. Consumer Products awarded the license for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again to the company, which was founded in 2009 by Jay Foreman, the founder and President of Play Along. Among its most high profile lines is Zhu Zhu Pets, which was the hit of the 2009 holiday season.
Bridge Direct plans to release action figures and collector figures, among other toy products, next fall, leading into the release of the first of the two films on December 14th.
No specific game products were mentioned in the initial announcement. Games Workshop has a game license for tabletop games based on The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films.
