JAKKS Pacific's (NASDAQ: JAKK) Tollytots® division has signed a worldwide master toy license with Dorel Juvenile Group, Inc. ("DJG USA"), a division of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.A) and the nation's largest juvenile products manufacturer, for the award-winning and trusted brand of innovative baby products and accessories, Safety 1st®.

Under this license agreement, Tollytots will develop, market and distribute a comprehensive line of preschool and early learning toys for infants and toddlers in-line with the Safety 1st standards of safety, innovation, design and value, that have made Safety 1st a trusted and premiere brand for generations of parents and children. The new Safety 1st toy line from Tollytots will cover a broad range of categories including learning and developmental toys and is expected to launch in fall 2012.

"We are thrilled to partner with DJG and their Safety 1st brand, the leading provider of innovative products in child care, home safety, play and travel safety," said Darryl Wizenberg, President of Tollytots. "As a parent, I have always trusted the Safety 1st brand and use their products every day in our home. As a businessman, I am excited to offer parents an exciting new line of toys that stimulate the development process of infants and toddlers with the premiere Safety 1st standards that parents can trust."

Dave Taylor, President and CEO of Dorel Juvenile Group USA, added, "Our alliance with Tollytots will continue our commitment to developing the highest quality products for families. Our consumers look to us for technology, value and products that enrich their lifestyles and Tollytots produces premium, innovative and engaging products for children. Together, we anticipate a highly successful extension of the Safety 1st brand into the toy aisle."

"With Dorel Juvenile Group's reputation for raising the safety bar, our selection process for the perfect toy partner for the Safety 1st toy line was implemented with strict criteria. Tollytots' expertise in combining quality, creativity and safety in the pre-school toy sector, made our decision an easy one," said Randi Goodman, Principal, Synergy Licensing.

Synergy Licensing, exclusive licensing agency for Dorel Juvenile Group, brokered the deal.
